Visual Inspection

 

Our trained technicians perform a full diagnostic inspection to accurately assess the service needed on the dryer vent system. Dryer Vent Doctor will perform a visual inspection of the vent line, lint trap, joint connections, termination point, and washing machine hoses.

The visual inspection allows us to determine if there are any deficiencies, repairs, or re-routes needed to keep your dryer running properly. This visual inspection also helps to verify if there are any fire, safety, or health hazards present.

 

After our thorough visual inspection, our technicians provide a written estimate based upon the diagnostic inspection and walk all homeowners through the services needed to keep their home safe. Dryer vents should be routinely inspected to ensure secure joint connections, to identify any excess lint build up, and to help prevent a fire by removing potential hazards.

Measurements

 

During the full diagnostic inspection performed by Dryer Vent Doctor, technicians will measure the airflow and/or the static pressure (back pressure) within the dryer vent.

Airflow Measurements

Restricted airflow in the dryer causes the dryer to run longer, use more energy, and also increase the collection of lint in the vent line, creating a fire hazard. Reduced airflow can be caused by improper vent connections, lint build up, improper routing of the vent line, wall caps, birds' nests, and more.

Dryer Vent Doctor uses a professional device to measure the temperature and velocity of airflow in the dryer vent. Based on these measurements and readings, as well as the visual inspection, we will offer solutions to increase efficiency of your dryer if needed.

Back Pressure Measurements

If static pressure (back pressure) in the dryer vent is too high, this pressure can reduce the amount of air that will be extracted from the dryer. This process results in decreased efficiency and excessive wear on the clothes dryer.

Dryer Vent Doctor uses a specialized device to measure static pressure in the vent line to properly gauge the efficiency of the dryer unit and accurately provide solutions to dryer vent problems.

Our detailed measurements will help to ensure that your dryer vent is working efficiently and effectively.

Debris/Clog Removal

 

Dryer Vent Doctor makes sure to remove all clogs or obstructions from the entire run of the vent, not just the entry and termination points. Dryer vents are often clogged with excess lint build up, but our technicians have also found:

  • Socks

  • Delicates & undergarments

  • Dryer sheets

  • Nuts left behind by animals

  • Birds, rat, & other rodent nests & dwellings

  • Brushes stuck inside from homeowners trying to clean the vent themselves

  • Construction debris from new home builds and remodels

Our technicians will remove all of these obstructions and anything else found inside the dryer vent. If our technicians find that your vent is infested with birds, rodents, or other disease carrying pests, they can offer our sanitizing service that will ensure that your dryer vent is hygienic and not a hazard to your loved ones. Once dryer vent debris removal is complete, our technicians will clean up after themselves, disposing of messy lint, outdoor debris, nests and more.

Dryer Vent Line Sanitation

 

Birds and rodents sometimes build nests inside the shelter and warmth of dryer vents. However, an animal searching for a safe place to build a home in your dryer vent is dangerous to your home.

Pest and rodent nests clog the dryer vent, reduce airflow, and create a fire hazard. Nests are also health risks as these pests are disease carriers. Droppings found in nests or left behind can contain the Histoplasmosis Fungi and/or the Hantavirus.

Dryer Vent Doctor offers nest and debris removal services along with dryer vent line sanitation. This additional service will remove nests and debris using a series of tools and professionally sanitize the vent line to prevent exposure to these health risks. In addition to dryer vent line sanitizing, Dryer Vent Doctor can also install pest proof vent covers to help eliminate future pests from entering your dryer vent.

Breathe easy knowing that our dryer vent line sanitizing service has removed dangerous fungi and other harmful contaminants.

Booster Fan Cleaning

Dryer vent lines, as well as booster fans should be cleaned once a year. If your dryer vent system exceeds 25 feet (with no bends), a booster fan is recommended to help your dryer run efficiently, and should be properly maintained just like the dryer vent.

 

During a booster fan cleaning by Dryer Vent Doctor, we remove excess lint that has collected on the booster fan and ensure it is functioning properly and is able to maintain proper airflow in your vent system.

 

Booster fan cleaning can increase the efficiency of your dryer, as well as cut down on dry times. Call us at 204-396-4544 today to schedule your dryer vent visual inspection and cleaning online.

Lint Screen Cleaning

After a drying cycle, lint collects in the filter, which if not cleaned, can reduce airflow and cause the dryer to work harder. This problem means longer drying times, more energy use, and higher electricity costs.

 

In addition, lint build up on the lint screen and in the lint trap is a serious fire hazard, so it’s important to clean the lint screen after each and every load of laundry. The lint screen should also be thoroughly cleaned periodically to remove any built up residue.

 

Dryer Vent Doctor offers dryer lint screen and lint trap cleaning and cavity cleaning as a part of our maintenance services. This small step will save energy, help your dryer work more efficiently, and minimize a fire hazard. In between professional cleanings we recommend that you check your dryer's lint screen by running water through the screen. If the water puddles, scrub with a soft brush, soap, and water. Clean until water runs straight through.

 

Professional dryer lint screen cleaning is a simple way to improve the efficiency and safety of your dryer. Request an appointment online today to schedule your dryer vent cleaning service, and we'll perform our professional dryer lint screen cleaning service.
