3 Reasons Why Dryer Vent Cleaning Must Be Done Professionally

August 31, 2023

In the previous blog, the 5 major warning signs of a clogged dryer vent were discussed. The dangers of not cleaning them on time were also addressed, namely potential fire hazards and an increase in energy bills. Hence, you might be considering cleaning the vents yourself right away to save time and money. However, you must never do it yourself without proper dryer vent cleaning equipment. To elaborate further, in this blog, Heat Seal Equipment Ltd., a manufacturer and supplier of air duct cleaning equipment as well as dryer vent cleaning tools, lists out 3 reasons why you must always hire professionals to clean the dryer vents.


3 Reasons To Choose Professionals


Prevalence Of Misinformation


Unless you are an expert, you may not be able to parse the wide misinformation regarding DIY cleaning on the internet. This can lead to you cleaning the dryer vents incorrectly. Consequently, the lint and debris can stay in the vent, creating further problems down the road. Therefore, only trust professionals who have the right dryer vent cleaning equipment to perform the task.


Lack Of Clear Signs


Only professionals know when the dryer vent is completely free of debris. An inexperienced person might not know these signs and can leave the cleaning incomplete. This means that lint and debris can still be present after the cleaning, leading to the problems stated above.


Safety Hazard


Improper cleaning can be a safety hazard after the job is complete. However, it can be dangerous even when the cleaning is being performed, as there is no clear safety protocol in place, often followed by professionals. For instance, not knowing when to turn off the dryer’s power supply can quickly turn into a dangerous situation. Therefore only experts with the proper dryer vent cleaning tools are suitable for this task.
