Prime Dryer Vents Services

Maintaining your dryer’s vent system increases safety, promotes good health, saves time and money, and extends the life of your dryer.
Identifying airflow restrictions, a damaged vent, or improper dryer ducting is the first step in protecting your home or business from fire, lint accumulation, rodent and insect infestation, carbon monoxide exposure, and moisture within your dryers’ exhaust path.
To protect property and prevent damage to your dryer and dryer vent system, a trained professional should perform an inspection and thorough dryer vent cleaning and repair.

Dryer Vent Inspection

Identifying airflow restrictions, a damaged or disconnected vent, and improper vent installation is the first step in protecting a home or business from dryer vent-related dangers and realizing the advantages of a clean dryer vent system.
A 30-point dryer exhaust system inspection examines airflow and backpressure to determine the performance of the system. In addition, a trained Technician will visually inspect the dryer exhaust system from the appliance to its termination point to ensure that it complies with standards, local codes, and dryer manufacturers’ recommendations.

Dryer Vent Inspection Plan

• Location, condition, and type of vent termination exterior.
Determine the length and diameter of the duct.
• Material type for ducts and joints.
• The type and state of the transition hose.
• Determine developed length.
• All Clearance.
• Condition of the dryer’s lint filter
Determine the number and location of fittings.
• Airflow velocity
• Examine the path of the ventilation system from within the living area.

What is the purpose of a dryer vent?

  • a. A dryer vent helps hot, wet air to escape from a dryer’s rotating drum to an exterior termination point, therefore preventing mold and material damage.

    b. Removes clothes particles and lint. A lint screen will only capture about 25 percent of the fabric particles generated by the agitation and high temperature of a wash and dry cycle. A small amount of lint makes its way into the dryer’s inside cabinet. Concurrently, the remaining majority employs a transition hose between the dryer and a solid pipe to continuously remove this very combustible liquid from your home or business.

    c. Gas dryers require a safe and dependable technique for containing and evacuating spent fuel by-products, such as carbon monoxide, from their operation. A correctly engineered dryer vent system will prevent carbon monoxide from escaping into your house or place of business, thereby protecting anyone who come in contact with this toxic chemical.

Dryer Vent Installation & Repair Specialists

Dryer vent system repair is generally necessary because a dryer duct is broken or disconnected, isn’t working as it should, is made of the wrong material, or was installed in a way that doesn’t follow the code and creates a hazard.

If the dryer’s exhaust system fails, it could lead to fire, carbon monoxide poisoning, mold growth, and a dryer that doesn’t work well.
