Answering Your Frequently Asked Questions About Dryer Vent Cleaning in Burnaby

If you own a commercial rental or strata property with on-premises clothes dryers, it is absolutely vital to have those dryers’ vents cleaned regularly.  Fortunately, it’s easy to find high-quality vent cleaning services in Burnaby.  We have over twenty years’ experience creating great outcomes for our clients.

If you’ve never hired a Burnaby vent cleaning service before, here are answers to some of the questions you might have.

I. Why do I need regular dryer vent cleaning?

There are several reasons, but it largely boils down to efficiency and safety.  Uncleaned ducts will build up lint and other detritus which clog up the vent and impede airflow.  This directly puts more strain on the dryer, increasing energy bills while decreasing speed and efficiency.

In addition, the lint that builds up in dryer vents is highly flammable and can be ignited solely by the heat coming off of the dryer.  Hundreds of preventable fires happen every year due to uncleaned dryer vents.

II. How often should dryer vents be cleaned?

This will vary somewhat based on usage, but in general, no more than two years should pass without a cleaning.  For facilities that see heavy use – such as in rental properties – it should be an annual maintenance event.

III. How is vent cleaning done?

It’s a relatively simple procedure – if a company has the right tools to handle commercial-grade equipment.  Basically, a series of brushes along with a vacuum hose are snaked through the length of the vent.  The brushes knock debris off the walls, while the vacuum removes anything in its path.  

However, be sure you hire a company with experience in commercial vent cleaning.  Tools only intended for residential vent cleaning often lack the power or length to clean a larger vent.

IV.  How do I choose a vent cleaning service?

It’s all about experience and specialization.  The longer the Burnaby vent cleaning service has been in business, and the more they focus on cleaning commercial-grade vents, the more likely you are to be satisfied with the results.
