The U.S. Fire Administration recommends that homeowners have their residential dryer vents cleaned at least once a year so that excessive debris does not build up within the ventilation pipes causing risks such as residential structural fires, gas leaks into the home and large energy usage for operating the dryer.
For homes that use the dryer more than two times per week regularly throughout the year the cleaning service should be increased accordingly.
Plastic or slinky foil connection hoses between the dryer and vent are unsafe and against building code. If you have a plastic or slinky foil hose call us and we will replace it with Dryer Flex, a fire resistant aluminum flex hose pictured above.
We will do a thorough inspection of your entire vent system and make suggestions for any modifications that should be made to comply with current building codes. We can replace broken exhaust vents, re-route or replace exhaust piping and do many other needed repairs.
Pictured above is plastic hose used where rigid aluminum pipe should be. This is a code violation and a fire waiting to happen!
