Is It Time for You to Have Your Dryer Vent Cleaned?
Some of the warning signs that your dryer vent may be blocked or obstructed include:
- Excess lint behind the dryer
- Clothes taking longer to dry
- No lint on the lint screen
- Excess lint or pet hair on clothing
- Lint around the door seal
- Unusually hot dryer and clothing

Risks of Obstructed Dryer Vents
There are risks with ignoring these warning signs and not properly cleaning dryer vents. These risks include:
- Home fire – the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) warns that malfunctioning or poorly maintained clothes dryers and washing machines are one of the leading causes of home fires
- Carbon Monoxide Poisoning – gas dryers where the vents are blocked, obstructed or not properly maintained can cause carbon monoxide to build up in the home
- Mold Growth – blocked or obstructed dryer vents can’t effectively remove moisture as designed, causing moisture to be released into the home and possibly resulting in mold growth

What People Are Saying
"Phenomenal, just absolutely amazing!"
Phenomenal just absolutely amazing!!!! They were actually a few minutes early, professional and well mannered! I take care of animals and there were numerous stains of different compounds. Obviously urine, some blood from an animal that was ill etc. looked very dingy. One mint colored carpet I thought I’d have to replace and there was now saving it! Well they brought it back to life and it is bright and vibrant once again. The Walk way on light carpet for stairs mud room is restored to life as well. Bye Stanley cleaners and the rest! I won’t have anyone else other than this company. Thank you again!
I had an excellent experience! Elvin and his team were prompt, courteous, neat and fast! I’m always looking for a safe way to clean my carpet and rugs because I have pets. They have a special safe treatment for pet stains too! Great experience and I will definitely use again!
"Prompt and respectful!"
This was a fantastic experience. Appointment was easy to get only a day or two lead time. Technicians were prompt and respectful of our home. I learned a bit about carpet care which is a great thing! The rug looks great and on the way out they steamed my front steps, something I didn’t even know you could do!! Will definitely refer and use again.
