How to Use Dryer Vent Cleaning Tools

September 08, 2021

A dirty dryer vent is the biggest threat to any home. Clogged dryer vents, ducts, and air ducts will experience a buildup of pressure, and this may potentially lead to fires or duct damage. The first step to ensuring your dryer vents and air ducts are properly cared for is to get the right dryer vent cleaning tools to help you with cleaning and maintenance. Once you have the right tools, you can start working on cleaning your vents and ducts.


Here is how to use dryer vent cleaning tools:


Find the Exhaust Opening Location

The exhaust opening location can be easily found in most homes. However, sometimes your vent or duct system may be a complex and jointed system with twists and turns. If you're dealing with a complicated duct system, consult your residential blueprint to easily find your duct opening and exit.


Full Duct Disconnection

Remove the vent fan's plug. Next, detach the vent pipes. Doing this ensures you can safely run cleaning chemicals through the system and efficiently use your dryer vent cleaning tools to remove stubborn, caked dirt.


Thoroughly Use Your Dryer Vent Cleaning Tools

There are a number of cleaning tools that are needed for a thorough cleaning procedure. Cleaning rods are probably the easiest tool to use at home. Nylon vent rods are fully compatible with a great number of soft and hard-bristled brush heads. Your objective is to remove stubborn dirt using your handheld cleaning rods. Scrub hard and remove small fragments easily by dousing the vent's insides with a ample detergent and water mix. You can also dip the rod in soapy water to soften caked dirt.


Reconnect the System

Carefully reconnect the vent fans and plug them into their respective sockets. Make sure you've cleaned the vent fans as well.
