SM Duct Cleaning located in Whitchurch-Stouffville provides high-quality dryer vent cleaning in the areas of GTA, Peel, Durham, Hilton and Hamilton. Our team of professionals will effectively remove dust from every surface inside your ducts. However, the effect is not permanent. As long as you’re using your forced air heating or cooling system, the ducts will continue to accumulate dust as before.
Dust accumulation is inevident and you’ll never get rid of it from your house completely, no matter how often you clean your home. The same goes for duct cleaning.
The good news is that most of the dust inside your ducts sticks to the surface. It doesn’t all end up in your living space. That’s why we recommend duct cleaning every one to three years, depending on pets and allergens inside your home.
Many people are unaware that along with emptying the lint trap on your dryer, regular cleaning of the duct leading from the dryer to the outside of your home is also necessary. Lint and debris which are not trapped by the screen get through and gradually clog the vent, leading to decreased dryer function and, in extreme cases, serve as a potential fire hazard.
In most cases, short ducts venting directly from the dryer to the exterior of the home can be easily accessed and cleaned by the homeowner. However, the farther the dryer is from the exterior vent, the more difficult and inconvenient becomes the cleaning process.
Using high-pressure air tools, we pull built-up lint from your dryer vent, removing any blockages as well as clearing the build-up on the sides of the duct. It is advised that the dryer vent be fully cleaned at least every 6 to 12 months and that the homeowner inspects the vent and dryer for signs of blockage every few months.
Your dryer vent should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months, depending on how much your dryer is used. Between cleanings:
Check your dryer vent every few months to ensure that it is not blocked or full of lint
If your dryer is taking an unusually long time to dry, or if clothes are always damp, your dryer vent may be clogged
You can check your dryer vent by moving your dryer away from the wall and detaching the flexible duct from the back and looking into it
If you have a short duct directly to the outside and a shop vac, you may be able to clean the duct out quite easily on your own.
