Prevent House Fire
Dryer fires are commonly caused by failure to properly clean and maintain both the lint trap or lint screen and the vent to the outside, causing the fuzzy debris from clothing to accumulate, build up and catch fire in the exhaust duct or the heating elements.
Clothes dryers require clear ventilation to operate effectively. A machine full of lint and debris will prevent your dryer from fully drying your clothing while trapping heat and humidity in your home. Damp clothing also requires more dryer cycles to fully dry, and you pay more for the effort.
Save Precious Time
Every time dirt and debris gets into your vent, it is draining time and money as well. As these problems accumulate your dryer will have a harder time functioning. It may start overheating and will ultimately overwork itself, costing you longer drying times, higher utility bills, and maybe even the need to replace the dryer.

Fires can be prevented with Dryer Vent Cleaning!
The National Fire Protection Association reports that washing machines and clothes dryers are responsible for an average of 15,970 fires from 2010–2014, with dryers causing 92% of those fires. Lint, fiber, dust and debris were found to be the cause of the ignition in most cases, causing the dryer fire. Clothes dryers that are not properly vented, or have obstructions such as lint, debris or bird and animal nests clogging the dryer duct can cause carbon monoxide gas to back up into the laundry room and home.
Failure to clean the dryer is the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires.
Protect your home, prevent property damage and most importantly protect your family with annual dryer duct cleaning.
Signs you need dryer vent cleaning
Clothing takes longer to dry
If your laundry comes out of the dryer still damp or takes multiple drying cycles to dry, it can be an indication you need dryer vent cleaning. Clothing that stays damp can also stain and smell like mold and mildew, ruining your clothes.
A hot and humid laundry room
A hot and humid laundry room is a sign that your vents are clogged and preventing air from ventilating, possibly causing a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide. Dryer duct cleaning will help remove the blocked ventilation and lint buildup and improve air flow.
Noticeable burning odor
If you notice a burning odor coming from your laundry room, that can mean that lint, fiber, and debris under and around your clothes dryer’s heating element are getting hot enough to ignite. This is putting your dryer and home at risk for a disastrous fire. Dryer vent cleaning monster can help clean not only your dryer vent, but also under and around your dryer, eliminating the risk of debris igniting.
Lint build-up around the dryer and the outside vent
Lint that is building up around your dryer’s outside vent and flap and also around your dryer in the laundry room means that it is time to call Dryer Vent Cleaning Monster. Did you know that birds and other animals love to build their nests in your outside dryer vent? The warmth and safety of your dryer vent is nice for birds, but could mean problems for you!
