    Dryer Vent Cleaning

    Lifetime

    An uncleaned dryer duct or vent affects more than just how long it takes to dry that load of towels. Excess lint and debris increases the opportunity for a fire hazard. 2900 homes every year experience a fire related to a clothes dryer, and a blocked dryer vent is the leading cause in at least 34% of those fires.

    Dryer Vent vs Lint Trap

    The lint trap is the screen on your dryer that collects the lint in order to be removed before each dryer load. The dryer vent, or dryer duct, is what connects your dryer to allow the hot air from your dryer to escape outside. This is why you might smell fresh laundry when your neighbor is running a load.

    Maintenance

    To prevent having to clean out the dryer vent very often, keep the area around your dryer clean. Regular household dust and dirt will only expedite a clogged vent. 

    • Dust and sweep your dryer and surrounding area regularly
    • Remove and clean the lint trap before EVERY cycle
    • Remove lint trap to vacuum and clean the lint trap at least monthly
    • Clean the dryer vent duct every 6 months, you shouldn’t go more than 6 months in between cleaning, especially if you have a gas powered dryer since lint is highly flammable. 

    Repair/Replacement/Problems

    Your dryer taking longer than usual to dry clothes can be an indicator of a blocked dryer duct. Not only is this dangerous, but it also affects your energy bill becuase you’ll have to run the dryer longer to fully dry your clothes. Whether you suspect a blockage or just want to perform regualy scheduled duct cleaning, it’s pretty easy to do yourself. According to Review Home Warranties here’s how: 

    1. Remove any clothes in the dryer
    2. Unplug the dryer
    3. Remove any lint in the trap filter
    4. Pull the dryer out from the wall so you have room to remove the duct
    5. Remove the hose by carefully loosening the connector
    6. Vacuum any visible debris in your laundry room, and behind and under your washing machine and dryer
    7. Remove lint from the vent duct
    8. Use the duct cleaning brush to push the lint out of the vent pipe. 
    9. Use the vacuum attachments to clean out the lint trap and remove the lint that has fallen past the filter into the duct
    10. Check the outside vent to remove any clogs there – If the exterior vent is clogged, you will need to use your vacuum, lint brush, and air blower to remove as much of the lint as possible
    11. Replace the hose attachment on the back of your dryer and wall, and the lint screen
    12. Plug your dryer back in

    Now that your vent is clean and clear, you can enjoy the more energy effiecient machine! If you’d like an expert to clean any hard-to-reach vents, or vents with major clogs, give us a call to schedule us to come to your home.

Bobby arrived on time, explained everything he was doing, was quick, efficient and stuck to their quote, which was very reasonable BTW. I'm scheduling them for more services and wouldn't hesitate referring them to anyone.UPDATE! we had Lifetime return for dryer duct and vent cleaning, then for AC maintenance.

    What a great company filled with friendly, yet professional people who care about your job from the beginning to end. It starts with Renee who schedules the team to come out. The installers, Nick and Beau were excellent in checking in and communicating every step throughout the day. Electricians Tony and Alex had challenges with our system, but figured it out and voila! We have nice, cool, fresh air filling up our food bank!Then, here came David a few days later to service our furnace. Another excellent employee. We purchased the Premier Club Maintenance Plan and thrilled that we did!

    Nick, Beau & Tony did a great job installing our new AC & Furnace. Very professional, friendly & quick install. Nick had quite a job in such a tight space & did a terrific job. Beau even fixed a ducting problem after a previous contractor did a shoddy job. We so Appreciated their attention to detail. Great, professional, informative & fun team & we felt totally confident in their ability. We will definitely recommend them to friends who are looking for new AC. They even installed a much better & easier to use thermostat, set it up for our schedule. And the AC is so cool! Thanks Nick, Beau. & Tony.

    We called this company based off all the amazing google reviews and when we met with the company, we instantly knew we contacted the right people. They got us in for an estimate early, they scheduled us for our install the very next week (mind you it’s middle of summer when AC is WA is in high demand). The estimate was straight forward and they also looked into a few other heating questions we had regarding our home that was built a couple years that we think the builder didn’t install the best way.. I could go on and on. This seems like such a great company that truly cares about their people and their customers. We are excited to CHILL in our new AC that will be installed by this amazing company. 🙂 we have our install next week and I will submit another review after but let me tell you, from this point, we have had a great experience!! We worked with Robert who gave us our estimate and he is awesome!!
