Getting your dryer vents cleaned is simply part of smart homeownership. You’ll keep your home cleaner, safer, and running more efficiently when you invest in dryer vent cleaning services by JCS Home Services of Fairfax County, Virginia.
Apparently, you already have a notion to get that dryer vent cleaned, or else you probably wouldn’t be on this page reading these words. But nevertheless, here’s a reminder of why regular dryer vent cleaning (performed by professional technicians) is such a good idea for Fairfax County homeowners, business owners, and property managers.
It comes down to safety, efficiency, and improved indoor air quality.
Let’s start with safety. A dryer vent that’s clogged with dust and dirt, lint and pet hair, and other kinds of debris represents a real fire hazard to the house. Lint is flammable, and dryers get hot – and every year across the country, thousands of house fires are ignited inside dirty dryer vents.
The best way to avoid adding your house to that awful statistic is by ensuring your dryer vents are cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis by professional technicians – like us here at JCS Home Services.
But there are other, less scary, more mundane reasons to get those dryer vents cleaned – reasons which are nonetheless important to the safety of your family and the smooth operation of your home. The efficiency of your dryer – and the vents and ducts connected to it – is also at stake.
When there’s dirt, dust, and lint clogging up the vent, it’s harder for the dryer to push out the hot air generated when the dryer is drying your clothes. As a result, it requires more energy to accomplish the task, thereby raising the cost to you. But when a dryer is operated with a clean vent, it’s significantly more efficient – meaning your dryer can do its job without needing to labor to remove the (sometimes dangerously) hot air. So, not only does dryer vent cleaning reduce the fire hazard, it also increases efficiency and keeps your energy cost as low as possible.
Thirdly, dryer vent cleaning – and, by extension, air duct cleaning – helps improve the indoor air quality of your home. The thing about vents and ducts is that the dirt and lint that accumulate within them doesn’t always stay there; particulate matter could dislodge, make its way into the living spaces of the house, and fly around in the air you and your family breathe. The surest method for eliminating that possibility and reducing the nastiness of your home’s air is by keeping those dryer vents and air ducts clean.
A word of warning: Just because a company advertises that it does dryer vent cleaning doesn’t necessarily mean they do it correctly, or thoroughly, or well. There’s the right way to clean dryer vents (that’s the JCS way, the best way), and then there’s the quick-and-dirty way, which doesn’t get all the lint and dust out, leaving you with the same potential problems you had before.
When the experienced certified professionals of JCS clean a dryer vent, we make sure to meet or exceed all industry standards. First, our technicians locate all the air ducts which carry heated air from the dryer to the outside of the home. Then, we inspect the transition duct connecting the dryer to the wall, and take airflow readings to determine a baseline of current dryer-vent performance.
After that, the real job begins. Using state-of-the-art professional-level industrial-strength vacuum equipment, our techs snake out and suck up all the lint, dust, dirt, and debris that’s collected on the insides of the vents and ducts, removing it all and leaving the ductwork pristine and efficient.
But that’s not all. We then take another set of airflow measurements and compare them with the pre-cleaning readings, providing the homeowner with an empirical demonstration of the efficacy of JCS Home Services’ dryer vent cleaning services. Heck, we’ll even show you the ball of dirt and lint we pull out – sometimes it’s a rather impressive mass!
