FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask a Dryer Geek

Dryer vents should be cleaned once annually for a family of four, with a pet and average dryer usage (approximately 3 hours weekly). Dryer vents accumulate lint from clothes fibers and are highly flammable, with the potential to ignite at any time. You need dryer maintenance if a dryer takes too long to dry.

A dryer can release 2 to 3 gallons of water during an average cycle for a full load of wet laundry. When a dryer's vent pipe is too long or travels through cold space, the dryer's water vapors will condense inside the vent pipe. If a dryer vent is clogged and hot moist air traveling from the dryer cannot dispense, the air will cool and return to a liquid state, becoming trapped in the exhaust vent.

No, it’s not, over time and after exposure to extreme temperature fluctuations, duct tape can have irregular mechanical strength, and its adhesive will have a low life expectancy. When that happens, your dryer vent joints will become weak and prone to separation. Also, duct tape carries no UL safety certification and is flammable.

Yes, we can evaluate your dryers’ vent system airflow from the exterior termination point. We can also perform dryer maintenance from the same location without entering the home. In many cases dryer vent cleaning and repair can be accomplished from the outside without interior access.

Your dryer can operate with a clogged dryer vent but will take 2 or 3 cycles before your clothes dry. If the blockage is severe, the dryer's temperature will become extremely hot; you will typically blow a thermal fuse, and the dryer will not function until dryer maintenance is completed.

The only application for a flexible transition hose is between the dryer and the wall outlet. It should be either a UL approved foil type or the flexible aluminum duct and not exceed 8 feet in length. Do not use plastic (PVC) or vinyl. All concealed venting must be rigid metal (galvanized or aluminum). All dryer vents must be a minimum of 4" in diameter.

Yes, you can schedule a day and time of your choosing; however, we book in blocks of 2 hours to ensure we keep a tight schedule and can perform our work thoroughly calculating for unforeseen circumstances.

No, unless your dryer vent is straight and is only a few feet in length, or it is used together with a mechanical brush simultaneously operating from the opposite end. A homeowners’ leaf blower by itself is not powerful enough to effectively clean a clogged dryer vent through the standard 25 feet and 2, 90-degree elbows.

We endorse using a double-door no-pest vent cover; it’s the safest and most energy-efficient vent cover on the market. The use of Screens and cages are not considered a safe practice. Lint will accumulate quickly and block the termination

No, every dryer vent system is designed to discharge hot, moist air and lint to the vents outside exit. Allowing your dryer to vent into your home or garage will emit poisonous carbon monoxide gases (gas dryer), release hot wet air that will turn to mold, and mass a collection of dust and lint that is highly flammable.
