How To Use Dryer Vent Cleaning Equipment

December 31, 2021

Dryer vent cleaning equipment is important for thoroughly cleaning plugged dryer vents. However, cleaning vents using these tools is a comprehensive process, one of the best methods being air washing. 

Here, the air washing process using dryer vent cleaning equipment will be discussed:


What is Air Washing?

Air washing and pressure washing use a high-powered hose and hot air to remove dirt, dust, and debris from contaminated surfaces. This process can be done either indoors or outdoors. Now, here are a few important air washing tools.

Hoses Are The Key To Efficient Air Washing

The most common air washing tools are hoses designed for use with compressed air, available in a variety of lengths, diameters, and nozzle types. Thus, there are many different types of hoses that can be used with compressed air such as:

Turbo nozzles

Turbo nozzles reduce the amount of air that is pulled into the dryer. This is done by creating a reduced pressure area outside of the dryer that allows air to easily escape rather than get pulled into the dryer.

Pulse-jet nozzles

Pulse-jet nozzles release fluid in short bursts or pulses to break up dirt and debris.

Pre-pressure nozzle

A pre-pressure nozzle is a specially designed nozzle that helps to direct the pressure from the dryer into a single direction, ensuring that it is applied as efficiently as possible.

Other Dryer Vent Cleaning Tools You Will Need

Apart from the nozzle, there are a few more important parts that are required for vent cleaning:

Vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter

HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air. This type of filter is used in vacuum cleaners to capture, trap, and remove most microscopic particles, especially those that are very small, such as particles of dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke, and allergens.

Dryer Vent Brush

While the purpose of these brushes is pretty straightforward, their importance can’t be overstated. Without these brushes, cleaning the most hard-to-reach areas can be challenging, even for the most experienced cleaning teams.

Dryer Vent Snake

A dryer vent snake is a flexible rubber tube that snakes around the outside of your dryer vent. It is used to clean the vent of lint and debris, essentially keeping it free from dust, debris, and more.

With these parts at your disposal, you now have the basic dryer vent cleaning tools to do an effective job.
