Dryer Vent Cleaning in Ottawa
As you probably know from cleaning out your dryer lint trap, your dryer produces a lot of lint. Most Ottawa home owners assume that their lint trap catches most or all of the lint your dryer produces; however, this is not true, as a significant portion builds up in your dryer and your dryer vent.
Over time, this can lead to low dryer efficiency, causing you to run more loads, and can cause overheating, which can lead to A Fire.

Do you need to switch your dryer on more than once to dry clothing? Does your dryer take twice as long to dry one load of laundry? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you may have a dirty or clogged dryer vent, which will need professional attention.
Having a blocked or clogged dryer vent is not abnormal; whenever you use a dryer, the lint from your clothing and other items is sucked into your vent by the motor. This lint settles in the vent hose and eventually builds up to affect the efficiency and effectiveness of your dryer.
