Dryer Vent Cleaning in Maryland, Virginia & DC
Remove a huge potential fire hazard by having your dryer vents cleaned. Dryer vents tend to become clogged with highly flammable lint and other matter. Along with protecting your house from a possible fire hazard, dryer vent cleaning also increases the efficiency of your dryer.
Today, statistics show that there are more dryer vent fires than chimney fires. Lint build-up in a dryer vent is not only a fire hazard but also a tremendous money waster. When your dryer vent is clogged or partially clogged with lint, it can take twice to four times as long to dry clothes. You spend a lot of extra money on electricity or gas and you replace your dryer two to four times as often as you would if you had cleaned the vent. High’s Chimney will take care of that for you.

About Dryer Vent Cleaning
The National Fire Protection Association recommends thoroughly cleaning dryer vents regularly. Vents get obstructed because lint traps don’t catch all the lint and combustible materials, and vents (especially those with many bends) can also get blocked by debris such as animal nesting.
Cleaning dryer vents regularly has three big benefits:
- Maintenance: Clean vents result in dryers with longer lifespans.
- Efficiency: Cleaning vents increases dryer efficiency, speeding up drying time, as well as saving energy and money.
- Safety: Every year in the US, thousands of fires are caused by dirty dryer vents. In addition, gas dryers may be at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning if there is vent blockage.
It’s recommended to thoroughly clean your dryer every one to three years, depending on usage and other factors. A good sign your dryer vents need to be cleaned is if clothes take noticeably longer time to dry.
