Dryer Vent Cleaning by Sears

The Importance Of Regular Professional Cleaning.

What Causes a Clogged Dryer Vent?

Dryer vents clog when enough lint accumulates in the system to cause a blockage.  Dryer vent ducts can clog in a variety of ways.  For one, a long dryer vent run will clog quicker because the lint has too far to go. It clogs toward the end of the run first where the airflow is slower.  Secondly, if there are turns or curves in the ductwork, lint will build up there.  And I if the transition hose is crushed from the back of the dryer that connects to the ductwork, you get less airflow causing clogged dryer vents.  On the outside of the house is a termination vent. Those can get lint stuck on them which also creates a clogged dryer vent duct.

Call the Professionals at Sears to Have Your Dryer Vent Cleaned

Sears Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning technicians

Cleaning dryer vents effectively requires knowledge and the right tools. Once on the job, your Sears dryer vent specialist will inspect the system to determine the severity of the lint build up. Using high-pressure air and vacuum, the technician will clean the entire length of your dryer duct.  Keeping your dryer vents clean can reduce the amount of lint build-up in the dryer cabinet that can lead to dryer fires. Once cleaned, be sure to clean your dryer filter after every load is dried.  That helps keep increase the air flow, so your clothes dry quicker and you dryer vent stays cleaner longer. 

Why Clean Your Clothes Dryer Vent?

Safety Concerns

When lint builds up in your dryer vent, it blocks the flow of air from the dryer to the outside exhaust vent. This can cause flammable clothes lint to blow back into the dryer cabinet. Dryer fires can happen if this lint is blown onto the heating element. By having your dryer vent cleared of any lint or debris, you lessen the likelihood of a dryer fire.  

You will be surprised what comes out of your dryer vent.

Dryer Efficiency & Energy Savings

When a dryer cannot exhaust air properly, you have to run the dryer longer to get your clothes dry. That costs you more to run your dryer and it means it takes you longer to finish your laundry. You need to have proper air flow out of your dryer, through the vent duct and through the outside vent cap to get maximum cost reduction and speed of drying. Clogged dryer vent runs also create more backed up heat in the dryer which is bad on parts, as well as hot clothes which can be damaging to them.

I appreciated that they were able to clean the furnace and coils, too. And I felt he was very considerate and generous. But I thought the $850 price initially quoted was a bit high. I didn't understand why that needed to cost so much.

Both my daughter and I are in the same building and has the appointments the same day, you should advised customers when making appointment that you won't even do the air duct cleaning if other things are found. People need to know that beforehand.

Our technicians for the air duct cleaning were absolutely WONDERFUL! They were very professional and knowledgeable. They completed everything in a timely manner and were very good about explaining everything they did. They did not arrive within the time window I was given, but when I called the main phone line to see why, they explained why the techs were not there yet and gave a discount so I am very pleased.
