Cleaning and Unclogging

Dryer Fire Hazard

Professional maintenance service

Is your dryer vent clogged?
It doesn't work as well as it used to?

Did you know that it could be a fire hazard?

Have your dryer vent cleaned/unclogged.

You could save yourself a lot of hassle ...
Did you know that approximately 100 dryer fires are reported in Québec each year? 
There are certainly more, since most of them only affect the dryer duct and the dryer itself.
They probably go unreported.

But, in many cases the consequences are disastrous when a simple cleaning would have been enough.

Some easy precautions to take!

Precautions, continued ...

  • Do not overfill your dryer. Avoid overheating.
  • ​Always clean the lint filter before drying.
    Avoid overheating.
  • ​Do not operate the dryer without the lint filter.
    The lint will get into the duct and stay there.
  • Do not use vinyl pipe. Vinyl burns and melts.
  • ​Don't dry fabrics soaked in oil, gasoline or other chemicals without washing them repeatedly before. They can catch fire. Clean them at least 2 or 3 times before drying.
  • ​Avoid running your dryer while
    you are sleeping or away from home.
  • Don't overuse fabric softeners: Follow the recommendations.
    These chemicals can accelerate the burning of certain textiles
    and help clog your pipes.

What to watch for:

  • Your clothes take longer to dry than before.
    It isn't ¨up to the task anymore¨.
  • ​​Your lint filter is ¨loose¨.
  • It smells like it's burning.
  • ​​The top of the dryer is hotter than before.
  • You have noticed that
    the outside vent of your dryer is full of lint.

  • ​At the outside vent,
    the airflow is not very strong.
  • When you see the pipe,
    there is one or more ¨bents¨, it is crushed.
  • ​If the dryer is locked in a closet or a closed, poorly ventilated room.

Your added benefits

In addition to saving you from a fire!
  • Your drying time will be shorter.
    A clogged dryer vent can double the drying time.
  • ​Your clothes won't overheat.
    They won't change color as much
    and will wear out less quickly.
  • ​You'll save energy.
  • ​You will increase the life
    of your dryer's heating element.
