Our Top Rated Dryer Vent Services in Northern Delaware:

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer vent cleaning is one of the most impactful home services you can do in order to reduce the risk of a house fire. According to the National Fire Protection Association, or NFPA, 92% of house fires involve clothes dryers. We are working tirelessly to reduce that number and help keep our community safe.

There are several factors that determine how often you should have your dryer vent cleaned. These include the length of your dryer vent, the material it is made of, how many bends or turns there are, and several other components. A general rule of thumb, however, is to clean your dryer vent every 1-2 years. All of our services include a free inspection, and we will be able to come up with the best service plan that will meet your needs.

There are many HVAC companies in Delaware that offer dryer vent cleaning as an add-on-service, but they do not know clothes dryers like we do. Dryer vent cleaning is all we do. We are experts, we are knowledgeable, and continue to further our understanding of dryer vents every day.

 

Dryer Vent Transition Hose

A transition hose connects from the back of the dryer to the main dryer vent that leads to the exterior wall. The transition hose is intended to be short and flexible, so you are able to move your clothes dryer when needed. Not all transition hoses are created equally, however. Most of the transition hoses you find at the big box retail stores are rather flammable and susceptible to being crushed or damaged. Ditch the poor-quality transition hoses and let us upgrade you to keep you safe.

Here at Dryer Vent Cleaning Delaware, we only install one brand of transition hose: DryerFlex from Inovate. It is rigid but flexible at the same time, it is crush resistant, can withstand temperatures up to 482 degrees without catching fire, along with many other benefits. But what does that mean for you? It means we can help you live a safer life and dramatically reduce the risk of a dryer fire. We are happy to discuss options with you, so reach out today to set up an appointment!

Exterior Dryer Wall Vent

You have multiple options when searching for an exterior wall vent for either your clothes dryer or a bathroom exhaust vent. Many lower quality exterior vents have little flaps called louvers. These flaps open and close depending on whether or not the dryer is operating. Unfortunately, these plastic louvers are easily warped with time in the sun, causing them to become inoperable. The biggest risk: excess build up of lint. This lint blockage will create moisture and humidity inside the vent, will reduce the drying efficiency of your clothes dryer, and will cause your utility bill to spike.

We stock one of the most beautiful, effective, and long-lasting exterior wall vents on the market from Inovate. This single damper wall vent is secured by magnets when the dryer is not in use, creating a barrier for animals trying to enter. While we can’t legally say the powder-coated steel vent will last a lifetime mounted to your wall, we are extremely confident in its build quality. Not only is it durable and sleek, but it will also dramatically reduce the risk of lint build up in the wall vent due to its single door design. We’ll discuss some options for you and let you decide what is best!

Bird Guard Installation

Birds love to build their nest inside clothes dryer vents due to the dark, warm environment. Their nests are protected from the elements and predators and the warmth from the dryer gives them a cozy place to nest. However, this poses a serious risk for you as a homeowner. The bird’s nest will create a large blockage, disallowing the warm air from the dryer to be exhausted. This can not only increase the risk of a fire, but it can also cause excess moisture and humidity to live in your dryer vent. We have seen many times where dryer vents will begin to leak water through the ceiling or drywall causing water damage. The best way to combat this potential issue is with a quality bird guard.

According to the dryer vent code, screens are in violation and are not authorized. In order to get around the code while maintaining proper airflow without a build up of lint, we install The Defender from Inovate. Constructed with only vertical bars, it allows the air and lint to easily pass through without creating a blockage. If you live in a wooded area and are susceptible to nesting birds, consider an upgrade to this bird guard!

There are several reasons you may need to reroute or rebuild your dryer vent. Improper venting material, such as vinyl or foil, is the most common reason for needing a replacement. Those materials are not up to code, decrease the efficiency of your clothes dryer and may pose increased safety concerns. In some cases, dryer vents are improperly routed and exceed the 35’ maximum length requirement per code. A reroute may dramatically decrease the overall length, making your dryer safer and more efficient.

Every dryer vent reroute job requires an on-site visit to gather as much information as possible for giving an accurate quote. The good news is that estimates are free! We’d be happy to discuss multiple options that make the most sense for your home as well as your budget. We always perform air flow testing upon completion to make sure your dryer is running as smoothly as possible. We pride ourselves on clean, efficient, and quick installations. We’ll be in and out before you know it with minimal impact to your schedule. Reach out for a free quote today!
