DRYER VENT CLEANING
*Power Washing Houston's Dryer Vent Cleaning Services* arose out of a dire need for customers to be informed, educated, and serviced when it comes to the hidden danger of clogged dryer vents. After informing numerous customers that their dryer vent was clogged (our techs noticed the blockage while performing house washing services) at the termination point and being asked if we can remedy the problem, we decided to get the proper training on how to do it the right way so that we can service our customers.
Believe it or not, thousands of home fires each year are started due to an appliance that is supposed to help make our lives easier...the dryer. When debris begins to clog the dryer vent, the exhaust gases produced by the dryer begin to back up and create a potential fire hazard. This can turn an otherwise helpful appliance into a disaster waiting to happen. Aside from the biggest risk of a home fire, clogged dryer vents sometimes lead to short-circuiting and major electrical problems, overheating in the home and increased energy bills as the dryer has to work harder with each spin cycle in order to dry clothes. In a nutshell, the biggest cause of a clogged dryer vent is a lack of maintenance!
Check out what the US Fire Administration has to say:
One of our cleaning process involves The Jet-Snake Cleaning System which uses compressed air (100-125psi) to clean the entire length of the dryer vent duct from the outside of the home. The lint is forcefully blown to the outside of the home as The Jet-Snake head safely bounces around the inside of the dryer vent duct knocking the lint free and blowing it back toward the exterior of the vent's termination point. This method is extremely effective and leaves the dryer vent duct lint free. This process is ideal for a "basic" clean, especially if the customer's schedule is difficult to coordinate for a time to be home to allow our tech to clean from the inside of the laundry room to the termination point of the vent.
Another of our cleaning methods utilizes a soft to medium bristle brush on a flexible fiber glass rod which rotates and sweeps the entire vent line while extracting the debris along the way. This process is ideal when we perform our "standard" service cleaning from the interior of the home and are able to clean the entire laundry room area of all lint and debris.
