Did you know that dryer vent exhaust systems accumulate contaminants such as lint and dust that can lead to overheating, inefficiency, and even fires? The most common cause of dryer fires is a clogged dryer vent. At Connett Services, we provide dryer vent cleaning in Des Moines, IA. Our certified technicians use the latest technology and equipment to clean your dryer vent system.

Just like your air ducts you can’t see inside your dryer vent! Using our video inspection camera, we can show you all the dirt and lint that stays inside your dryer and vent once you have completed your laundry and cleared the lint trap. Lint will build up in the dryer, transition duct and exhaust duct which can reduce airflow and create a dangerous situation which can lead to overheating and dryer inefficiencies, and in some cases, fires. When moisture cannot escape it will invite mold and bacteria build up as well. By cleaning your dryer vent, we can help ensure your clothes dryer is both safe and energy efficient!

First things first, if you don’t remember the last time your dryer vent was cleaned, it’s time to schedule a dryer vent cleaning service as soon as possible. Nonetheless, here are warning signs to watch out for:

  • Your clothes are taking longer to dry. If you’re forced to run multiple cycles just to get your clothes dry, you probably have a blockage that’s preventing air from circulating.
  • Your dryer is too hot to the touch. If your dryer or clothes get extremely hot during or at the end of the cycle, a clogged vent could be the cause.
  • Your vent hood flap doesn’t open properly. A buildup of lint can restrict airflow through the dryer hose and outside vent opening, preventing the flap from opening as it should.
  • The dryer keeps shutting off before the end of the cycle. If your dryer keeps shutting itself off during a normal drying cycle, the chances are it’s overheating. Vent clogging can force the dryer to work harder and overheat, triggering the overheat switch to shut it off.

You’ll want to have your dryer vent cleaned once every three to twelve months, depending on how often you use it. If you do one or more loads of laundry each day then it’s important to schedule periodic video inspections to determine how long you should go before dryer vent cleanings. If you do laundry less frequently, then it should be safe to schedule dryer vent cleaning once a year.
