Dryer Vents – Hotbed of Toxins and Allergens

Detergents and fabric softeners may be necessary to clean your clothes and bedding, but they also contain hazardous chemicals for human breathing or consumption. A secondary purpose of a dryer vent is to help release chemical vapors from the dryer and out of your home. A clogged vent cannot do its job, and the gasses from chemical cleaners may be released inside your home.

Lint stuck to the interior of the dryer vent can also absorb those chemicals, as well as allergy-causing dust and dirt. If you or a family member already has allergies or asthma, a dryer brimming with toxins will only exacerbate the illness.

How Capitol Chimney Cleans Dryer Vents

A Quality Check Inspection is part of every service Capitol Chimney offers to troubleshoot your dryer vent, chimney, or fireplace. In the case of dryer vents, the first step is identifying the vent box and vent cap on the home’s exterior. We can tell immediately whether or not your vent needs cleaning or repair.

Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning

We will begin by disconnecting the dryer for the maintenance step of the process. We check airflow through the dryer vent exhaust, identify any barriers to airflow, and begin the cleaning process.

Professional dryer vent cleaners like Capitol Chimney have tools, rotary brushes, and vacuums used specifically for your vent, which may curve sharply at the wall of your house. We do not recommend that homeowners attempt to snake brooms or other objects through the vent independently. Doing so may cause further damage to your dryer vent.

Once lint and debris are completely removed from the vent, Capitol Chimney will clean the aluminum sleeve, the dryer, and the area around the dryer for any additional material that may have been blown out.

We will then reconnect the dryer to the vent sleeve and reconnect its power source so that we may run a test cycle. A successful test cycle means that the dryer is spinning hot, and air is flowing to and through the vent box outside your home. Once a successful test dryer cycle is complete, we will clean up any mess caused by our maintenance work and leave the laundry area of your home exactly as we found it.

Installing Animal Guard Caps

Because your dryer vent exits at the exterior of your house, the opening must be protected from rodents, birds, and other animals. Sometimes these animals make nests, adding additional clogging to the vent. Once inside, the animals will leave droppings, chew through the ductwork, and may even make their way into your home.

Capitol Chimney offers professional installation of quality mesh caps and screens that protect your dryer vent and ductwork from wildlife intruders.
