Your dryer exhaust and dryer vent system is designed to remove heat, moisture and lint from your laundry as it is being dried. If you have a gas dryer, it is also removing gas by-products from your home. Improper venting can cause a dryer fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.
Vinyl, plastic or flexible foil are no longer acceptable venting material for your clothes dryer. Though this type was used, years ago, it does not meet today's safety standards. Even the thin metal foil vents which are claimed to resist fire are easily crushed, restricting air-flow which is required for your dryer to work. When the duct is crushed, heat, lint and moisture cannot escape from the clothes dryer.
the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that over 15,600 dryer fires occurred killing 20 people, injuring 370 more and causing over $75.4 million in property damage. According to the CPSC, in most of these cases the culprit was lint getting into the machine’s heating element, sparking and fueling a fire. Not surprisingly, some fire departments and insurance companies now require that dryer vents be inspected and cleaned regularly.
Professional dryer vent cleaning is recommended every 3 to 6 months to keep your appliance running efficiently and safely. The fee for this service is small compared to the cost of repairing or replacing an over worked clothes dryer, or the cost of losing your home or even your life.

Q: How often should I have my vent cleaned?
A: Alpha Steamers recommend having your vents inspected every 3 to 6 months and cleaned as needed.
Q: How can I tell if I should have my vents cleaned?
A: Increased drying times are one of the best indicators of a dirty or clogged vent. If it takes more than one cycle to dry a load of clothes, especially jeans and towels, cleaning is most likely in order.
Q: Are these plastic dryer-to-wall vent extensions safe to use?
A: No. Consider having one of our trained professionals install a proper vent extension.
Q: My laundry room is on the second floor next to the bed room. Does this matter?
A: Yes. The placement of your laundry room may require longer venting lines. Long vent lines can result in the increased build-up of lint. Additionally, some newer dryers are not configured to work with these long vent lines. Alpha Steamers technicians can evaluate your specific venting requirements and recommend the best configuration.
Q: My house is only a year old. I can wait a few more years before calling you, right?
A: In our experience, it is never too early to call. Improperly installed vents are a major cause of house fires. In our experience, we've even found insufficient venting in new, upscale housing.
Q: My dryer doesn't seem to dry my clothes well lately. Does this mean I need a new dryer?
A: Not necessarily. Clogged vents or improperly installed vents will prevent your dryer from efficiently drying your clothes. Consider calling Atlanta Dryer Vent Cleaning - Alpha Steamers before purchasing a new dryer. Many folks purchase new dryers when the problem is really the venting and the new dryer still doesn't dry the clothes.
Q: I need to buy a new dryer anyway. So I don't really need to worry about having my vent cleaned, right?
A: After the removal of your old dryer is a perfect time for a visit from one of our trained service professionals to inspect and clean your vent so that your new dryer can operate at maximum efficiency.
Q: It looks like there is water dripping from my dryer vent. Is this normal?
A: One of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. This moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer as humidity and is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryer's vent. If this air cannot be adequately removed, poor drying will result. This moisture can also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, eventually leaking out. Any moisture accumulation inside the dryer ducting is a sign of poor venting which should be checked.
