Power Vac is your Stratford Dryer Vent Cleaning Experts
Your dryer exhaust vent system is designed to remove moisture, heat and lint from your dryer as it is being dried. Cleaning the dryer vent improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer. As the dryer vent fills up with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer to clog and overheat. When lint builds up in the dryer vent it prevents air and moisture from escaping, resulting in clothes remaining damp. This increases the fire risk associated with plugged dryer vents.

A Power Vac Dryer Duct Cleaning helps Prevent:
- Excessive Drying Time: With vents being clear, it allows the dryer to
more efficiently dry clothing in a timely manner.
- Breakdowns: The cleaner the vents, the less strain there is on
your dryers. Because of this, motors and circuits within the dryer
experience dramatically less stress, allowing you to increase its longevity.
- High Utility Bills: Dryers are more effective at drying when working with a clear duct,
allowing them to dry at peak efficiency. This saves you time and money on energy bills
- Fire: Overloaded vents and overworked dryers can be a dangerous
combination. Buildup of lint and debris mixed with heat from the dryer
are a dangerous combination. When the vents are clean, you can
eliminate the overloading and overwork and lower the risk of fire.
Dryer Duct Cleaning Frequency
The more frequently you use your dryer, the more often the vent should be cleaned. However, the method of venting also plays a role. If the dryer venting system is more than 15 feet (5.5 meters) or has 90 degree turns, it should be cleaned more frequently. Most appliance experts agree that having the dryer venting system cleaned every 500 loads or so should suffice. However, you should have your dryer vent professionally
inspected by a professional at minimum every 2 years. Additionally, you should clean out your dryer’s lint trap after every load of laundry.
