We Ensure Your Dryer Vent Is Clean and Healthy
Most of the time, dryer vents are cleaned only when they’ve become clogged. However, a clogged vent only indicates that the problem has already started. Dryer Vent Cleaning AZ provides a proactive service that protects your home BEFORE any danger happens in Scottsdale and all over the valley. Many times we have been called out to Scottsdale with people thinking their vent is clogged because its not drying but all the homes with flat top roofs typically have screens on the top of the vent so rodents don’t get in the vent which is against code because it catches all of the lint. Thats why we do video camera inspections and code compliance checks at all of our cleanings.
Over time, dryer vents may become obstructed, resulting in the buildup of lint and dust that poses a serious fire hazard. A clogged dryer vent is not only a safety concern but also ranks among the primary causes of residential fires in the United States. To safeguard your home and loved ones, it is crucial to prioritize regular maintenance. We recommend that all vent pipes undergo professional cleaning at least once a year, though more frequent cleanings are preferable to ensure optimal safety and prevent potential fire risks.

90% of the Time When Lowes, Home Depot or Spencers Installs a Dryer They Install the Wrong Kind of Hose
Often, when you order a new washer and dryer, the company responsible for installation typically replaces the hose connecting the dryer to the vent. Surprisingly, about 90% of the time, they opt for a type of hose that contradicts the warning label on the back of the dryer. The label explicitly states to use a heavy metal hose, explicitly discouraging the use of a plastic hose or a metal foil hose. Yet, despite this warning, they frequently install a cheaper metal foil hose instead.
The reason behind this choice is usually cost-driven. These installation companies have already made their profit from selling the dryers and are unlikely to invest in more expensive materials that comply with safety recommendations. Instead, they opt for the more budget-friendly foil hose to maximize their margins.
However, there’s no need to worry, because this situation is addressed as part of our code compliance check. We take this extra step with every cleaning, which sets us apart from other companies. We prioritize safety and ensure that your dryer is equipped with the proper, secure hose, aligning with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
