Clogged dryer vents present a serious fire hazard.
Did you know that dryer fires are very common in the United States? They occur because lint gets trapped in the vent when it is not cleaned out on a regular basis. Unfortunately, lint is highly flammable. It catches on fire when the dryer vent clogs and sets off a chain reaction that leads to limited airflow. This makes the dryer have to work harder, and it gets hotter than usual. As a result, it eventually overheats and can catch on fire.
Annual Dryer Vent Cleaning is a necessity for many good reasons. It is something that all homeowners should invest in annually to save money, time and prevent fire hazards. If you noticed lately that it takes two or three cycles to dry one load of clothes, this is a sign that your dryer needs vent cleaning.
We use specially designed vacuums and agitation devices to hook up to the dryer vent connection. We are then able to vacuum and agitate the debris simultaneously with out any of the lint entering the home. When cleaning dryer vent stacks in condo’s or commercial buildings in South West Florida we use a camera system to confirm our effectiveness.

ESTIMATED ELECTRIC SAVINGS
Proper dryer venting is much more important than most homeowners realize. Considering the stakes involved and the frequency of residential dryer fires, the topic of dryer venting deserves more attention than it gets.
A quick look behind just about any dryer can be illuminating. In most cases, the flexible duct (transition hose) is going to have multiple bends. In situations that can be very dangerous, the exhaust hose can be crushed against the wall. Add lost socks, an empty fabric softener box and a considerable accumulation of lint dust and this very real fire hazard becomes obvious.
All this is before looking inside the wall or at the exhaust system’s outside termination. Inside the wall, long duct runs with many elbows increase the rate of lint accumulation in the duct and in the dryer itself. Inefficient dryer vent terminations that are all too common also contribute to the problem.
While we strongly recommend that the lint screen be cleaned before every load, the fact is that lint still makes it past the filter. There are many reasons lint builds up in every dryer system. Some you can see. Some you can’t.
What Are Your Neighbors Saying?
We bought a 50 year old home last fall and needed an A/C contractor to handle some of the issues with our unit, as well as perform an inspection. We also learned that they clean out duct work, which was important to us, starting out fresh in a new place, want to make sure everything is clean, etc. We hired TIES360 to fix both problems. I got an old unit outside strapped down with hurricane pad (I did not even know I needed that) got the drain line fixed that was all messed, I got my air handler checked and inspected so I did not have to worry about that for a year, AND I got my ductwork cleaned complete with BEFORE AND AFTER photos so I could see the junk that was in there and how great it looked after they got it done. It was so worth my investment, and with a team of people that I feel I can trust. Definately recommend TIES360.
Regardless of how well your constantly running AC unit maintains the temperature and humidity of your home, it is still costing you money. An air conditioner unit is not meant to run constantly. They are supposed to bring a room to a certain temperature and humidity level, and then maintain the room’s conditions as needed.
