Vent Inspection

During a dryer vent inspection, our technicians will check to see that your dryer is vented properly and clean it as needed.

Lint is also a fire hazard. Vancouver Appliance Repairs Dryer Vent Cleaning Services can make sure that your attic is free of lint and that your exhaust vents are working properly so that you will never have to worry about a fire in your home.
In addition to checking the condition of your vent, our inspectors will be able to examine the length and shape of your ducts. Generally, the maximum length of a dryer vent should be 35 feet from the dryer location to the roof termination or wall ducting. This number can be reduced by 2.5 feet for each 45-degree bend and 5 feet for each 90 degree turn, so it is important to make sure your dryer vents are as straight as possible.
If your ducts are not straight, you should consider installing vent elbows that are designed for use in a limited space without restricting the flow of exhaust. These can be found at home improvement stores and can help to ensure that your ducts are as straight as possible.

For example, your duct system may become clogged with lint and other debris that blocks airflow to your dryer. This can cause your machine to work harder and wear out faster. It can also increase your energy expenses as your dryer uses more electricity than usual to complete a drying cycle.

A clogged or blocked dryer vent can lead to a host of other issues, including increased risk of house fires, as well as poisoning from carbon monoxide and other health hazards. These problems aren’t only dangerous, but they also waste energy, cost you money, and pose a safety hazard to your home and family.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Process

The first thing to do when you suspect that your duct needs repair is to unplug the dryer from its wall outlet. This is necessary to avoid electrocution while you fix the vent.

To do this, you need to pull back the dryer so that you can access the flex vent behind it. The flex vents are made of flexible metal, so they’re easy to bend into shape without too much trouble.

You can then use a phillips screwdriver to loosen the clamps that hold the flex vent in place, and you’ll need to remove any aluminum tape as well. You can then bend the flex vent into shape, or you can replace it if it’s too damaged to repair.
