Lower energy costs
Extend dryer life
“Unlike vent cleaning services we are also going to open up the dryer itself and thoroughly clean and inspect the interior of the dryer. After all, the flame and heating element of the dryer is located inside the dryer.”

DRYER (INSIDE) AND DRYER VENT CLEANING
Cleaning the lint filter is not enough. Although it does filter lint, some fabric fibers get through and end up in the dryer vent pipe where it stays undetected. Over time, it can become clogged and cause several problems in the home such as household fires, machine failure, low indoor air quality, mold growth, and more. When there is something amiss with a clothes dryer, it may be suffering from issues that need to be addressed immediately. We specialize in:
Disassembling the dryer and vacuum and cleaning each component. Cleaning inside and around the dryer and replacing any parts as needed.
Going into the ventilation system. Cleaning out dryer vent with our sealed vacuum system and agitator.
WE GO THE EXTRA MILE: We also inspect gas lines for leaks and seal vent lines for leaks and proper mounting.

Dryer Vent Cleaning: Maintaining Safety and Efficiency in the Household
The U.S. Fire Administration recommends that homeowners clean their dryer vents once a year. Overlooked dryer vents cause an estimated $35 million in property loss, 100 injuries, and 5 deaths every year in house fires. The main culprit? Lint buildup. Although lint may seem harmless, it is a highly flammable material. Most homeowners rely on the filter to catch all the loose fabric fibers. However, some find its way into the vent pipe where they stay undetected until the pipe becomes clogged. This is why dryer vent cleaning is highly recommended and a necessary part of every homeowner’s checklist.
Aside from fire safety, it offers several other benefits like:
Dryer Machine Efficiency – A clogged vent reduces the efficiency of a clothes dryer. When the airflow is restricted or stopped, the dryer is forced to work harder to find a way to get rid of moisture and heat. As a result, the dryer performs poorly and may even shut off by itself. More often than not, when people find that it takes a longer time to dry their clothes, they think it is a mechanical issue and immediately start shopping for a new one. But with proper inspection, the cause may be traced to a clogged dryer vent, which can be easily cleaned and repaired at a cheaper cost than the cost of a brand-new dryer.
Better Air Quality – A gas dryer that has excessive lint buildup keeps exhaust fumes from flowing out of the house. This causes carbon monoxide to build up inside the house and cause poisoning or even death. To keep this from happening, the airflow in the dryer vent must always be clear and open.
Prevents Moisture Issues – When the clogged vent keeps moisture from getting expelled, it can cause tremendous damage. The moisture can mix with the lint and create a paper mache-like paste that, when dry, can be tough to remove. The moisture can cause mold growth and mildew in the vent pipe, in the dryer, and on the wall behind the dryer. Not only is this unsanitary, mold spores can also be dangerous to our health.
Keeps Clothes in Good Condition – Longer cycles and exposure to extreme heat can weaken the fabric of your clothes. As a result, clothes may start to rip, acquire holes, and lose color. Regularly cleaning your dryer vent can make for better and more efficient laundry cycles.
Saves Energy and Money – Regular vent cleaning minimizes the need for repair. It also minimizes the amount of time that the dryer is used and reduces the electricity used with every cycle of laundry. Both help minimize energy use and unnecessary expenses.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our average is 1.5 hours, but some jobs may only take 45 minutes while some may take up to three hours. The time is influenced by several factors, such as the accessibility of the machine and vent, the amount of lint buildup involved, and any other damage that may present itself during cleanup.
Every 1-2 years or more, depending on how often the dryer is used. It is important to clean it regularly to avoid fires and other problems and accidents.
When it takes longer to dry your clothes or if the clothes come out hot and moist, the dryer vent might be restricting the flow of heat and moisture. If you experience other inconsistencies, like noise, smoke, or mold, better have an expert inspect the machine and the vent pipe.
Clogged pipes resulting from lint buildup from fibers that get past the filter can cause a whole variety of problems in the home: fires, carbon monoxide buildup, and mold growth. Getting your dryer vent and the inside of your dryer cleaned by an expert reduces the risk of these problems.

OUR CLIENTS SAY
I called Dryer Vent Cleaning San Diego yesterday after seeing a post recommending them for cleaning dryer vents. They came this morning and cleaned my dryer inside and the vent leading to the outside. They did an excellent job and I highly recommend them. You should have the dryer and vent cleaned on a regular basis because all of the built up lint and dust could catch on fire.
Thanks to this post, I too hired Dryer Vent Cleaning San Diego to help me with my dryer. It was a total disaster! I soooo glad that I called! It was a fire hazard just waiting to happen. I would strongly suggest that everyone have their dryers cleaned at least every two years. It’s such a simple step to saving your home and possible life (and your loved ones).
I’d like to recommend an excellent repair team from Dryer Vent Cleaning San Diego. My dryer was making horrible squeaking noises and not drying clothes well. About a year ago, my husband and I cleaned our dryer vent however we did not open and cleaned the dryer itself. They opened the dryer and found it completely clogged with lint, some of which was singed – a terrible fire hazard. The vent had clogged up as well. Dryer Vent Cleaning San Diego cleaned the dryer, the vent and replaced damaged parts. They are honest, friendly and their price is extremely fair. A big five stars for them!
