Brookfield Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizardry
Keep Your Dryer From Starting A Fire
Every year, an average of 15,000 house fires are caused by trapped lint in a dryer vent going up in flames. With all the combustible materials typically found in laundry rooms—Clothes on hangers, piles of folded clothes on top of the dryer, long lost socks entombed in years of accumulated lint behind the dryer—it doesn’t take long for the entire room to go up in flames. About 15 minutes, to be precise. If the fire isn't caught quickly, it can burn down your entire house.
Don't let a dryer fire happen at your home. Make sure your clothes dryer venting is free of lint and properly routed. With a little preventive maintenance, you can avoid being the next statistic. Fire marshalls recommend at least a once yearly cleaning of dryer vents--more if you have a big family and do a lot of laundry.

Prevention is Your Best Line of Defense
Our services provide the best insurance for your dryer, keeping it operating efficiently and safely.
Dryer Vent Cleaning – Cleaning out your dryer vents is the best way to dryer fires. Accumulated lint clogging up the vent housing is like tinder. The buildup of heat inside the dryer vent tube is capable of heating lint to the point of combustion. If your vent is one of those flexible foil or vinyl wrapped tubes, it will literally go up in flames in a minute.
Dryer Vent Rerouting – Often, dryer venting is routed in an unnecessarily circuitous fashion. The more twists and turns in the venting, the greater the chance of lint accumulating and igniting. Our dryer vent service will reroute your dryer venting in the safest, most efficient manner possible—using aluminum housing.
If your dryer venting is exhausting into your home, into an attic or a crawl space, we will route it to an exterior wall where it will be exhausted outside. The condensation and lint particulate released by an interior dryer vent are unhealthy for both homes and humans.
Dryer Vent Repair – Dryer vents can become detached from their connection to your dryer, they can get crushed by the dryer being pushed too far against them, they can even have small punctures in them (if they’re those cheap, flexible dryer vent tubes.) Even in cases where the venting is aluminum, the person who installed the dryer may have connected the venting with duct tape, which over time has fallen off due to the heat and humidity of exhaust in the vent.
While we cannot repair the flimsy vinyl or foil wrapped venting, we can replace it with flexible or rigid aluminum venting. We can also secure aluminum venting with foil tape to prevent sections of the venting disconnecting and causing exhaust to release into your home.
Dryer Vent Installation – The cheap vinyl or foil wrapped dryer venting is such a fire hazard that most manufacturers now put a sticker on the back of their dryers warning against their use. Not only are they prone to clogs, but they erupt in flames if the lint caught inside catches fire. Our dryer vent experts recommend having this type of venting replaced with aluminum venting. If you’re having a new dryer installed, or need to get your old dryer connected in your new place, ensure the safety of your home by letting us install your dryer vent.
