Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer fires are more common than chimney fires. Reduce the risk.
How often you need to clean your dryer vent has lot to do with the layout of your dryer ventilation ductwork. The more twist, bends and corners you have, will indicate that there is a good chance that lint will collect and build-up in these areas. That being said, the risk is greater for dryer vent fires to occur.
Early detection of lint build up can prevent this from happening; some of the signs that might indicate your dryer vents need to be cleaned are:
- Clothes are taking a long time to dry or possibly not drying at all
- Excessive moisture buildup in your laundry room resulting in a high level in condensation (water dripping from your walls)
Dryer vents should be cleaned every 2-3 years depending on the length of the vent work itself. The shorter the vent is from your dryer leading to the outside will determine the amount of lint build-up and how often the vent should be cleaned.
Do I need my furnace and air ducts cleaned? If so, when?
The answer to this question is yes! Generally, the average residential home should have their HVAC system cleaned every 2-3 years. This includes new homes as well. New home HVAC systems usually contain post construction debris and chemical contaminates which then, is distributed throughout your air duct system and released into your indoor air. Older homes usually contain dirty and dusty furnace filters, duct registers, stagnant dust holding odors and constant dust build-up throughout your home. These are all just a few a signs indicating your HVAC systems needs to be cleaned.
What are the benefits of a Clean HVAC System and will this improve the quality of my indoor air?
Yes. Maintaining a clean HVAC system and providing proper filtration control (PUR CURx®
filters and treatment using PUR CURx®
ultraviolet lights) will reduce the risk in airborne contaminates in your home and will provide a clean PUR AIR environment.
