Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer Vent Cleaning in Calgary is often performed during a routine Furnace Cleaning or  Furnace Inspection and is considered to be the key service for safe and efficient dryer performance.

Dryer Vent Cleaning removes lint and other debris that has accumulated over time and allows the dryer to operate to its full potential, as well as decreases the drying time and maximizes the dryer’s overall performance and energy efficiency.

Small amounts of lint escape the dryer filter and accumulate in the duct walls, closing off the vent and restricting the airflow. This forces the dryer to work “harder” and longer to complete the drying cycle.

Consequently, moisture gets trapped in the dryer forcing an increase of humidity levels that result in bacteria growth.
