3 Essential Dryer Vent Cleaning Tools

August 26, 2019

We all know the importance of properly maintaining our ventilation systems. Clogged dryer vents are known to be the culprit for hazards like carbon monoxide build-up and fire in homes. In fact, the accumulation of lint in dryer vents are the most common source of appliance fire in residences across Canada. Small lint particles can travel through the lint filter, and get trapped deep within the dryer vent. That’s why it is essential to hire a company that uses the right dryer vent cleaning tools to ensure there are not blockages in your dryer’s ventilation system.



Today we’ll discuss some of the dryer vent cleaning tools that air handling businesses use to clean out dryer ventilation systems.



Dryer Vent Vacuum

  • Dryer vent vacuums are an efficient way of swiftly removing blockages from your dryer ventilation system.
  • A powerful dryer vent vacuum is more than capable of quickly sucking up any debris that is clogging the dryer vent.
  • Every dryer is different, so air duct cleaning professionals should be fully equipped with the right type of vacuum for your dryer type.


Skipper Balls

  • Skipper balls are metallic ball-shaped mechanisms attached to a rod and are used in tandem with an air compressor to remove build-up inside the ventilation system.
  • Reverse skipper balls are a great choice for build-up removal, as they are light weight. This makes it easier to maneuver through the duct system.


Spinning Brush

  • Spinning brush bristles are softer and allows for easy removal of stains and build-up without damaging duct and/or ventilation walls.
  • The brush head is attached to a long handle which can reach into tighter areas of the ventilation system.
  • There are a number of brushes available depending on application.
