Dryer Vent Cleaning in Michigan – Importance of Keeping Your Vents Clean

According to the U.S. Fire Administration (Division of U.S. Department of Homeland Security), between 2002-2004, clothes dryers were involved in an estimated 15,600 U.S. structure fires, fifteen deaths, 400 injuries and $99 million in direct property damage, annually. The leading cause of clothes dryer fires was lack of maintenance (lint build-up in the exhaust system).
The unnatural compressed state of the flex hose reduces the aperture of the pipe by 18%. Include a couple 90-degree bends and the result will be an incredible airflow reduction and efficiency loss in exhausting the lint-laden air.  These lint filled hoses can become very dangerous if left uncleaned. Lint is very combustible. Having it sit right next to a heat source (your dryer) is an accident waiting to happen.
When clothes are given the appropriate amount of air, they dry quicker and are subject to less tumbling.   This results in less wear on the clothes and less use of electricity or gas.

Dryer Vent Cleaning in Michigan

DRYER VENT CLEANING – Southeast Michigan

The State Fire Marshall advised home owners to clean their dryer vents. Most dryer vent fires start with a buildup of lint, which blocks air flow and ignites when it becomes too hot.

In 2003 there were 425 dryer vent fires resulting in 6 injuries and 1 death in Michigan alone. Debris can collect in the venting creating a kindling type situation. Clogged dryer vent causes house fire.

The State Fire Marshall suggests getting your dryer vent cleaned by a professional. When performing a dryer vent cleaning we perform the work from the dryer to the outside. This ensures safe airflow for your dryer also increasing the efficiency of your equipment.

Is that Smell coming from my Air Ducts?

There are so many questions to ask when wondering why the air inside of your home is not as fresh as it should be.  This is where Amistee Air Duct cleaning steps in.  It’s difficult to tell where that smell in the Air Ducts might be coming from.

Your home should be your haven, your comfort zone; a place to relax at the end of the day.  With all of the changing seasons in Michigan, many people stay inside to enjoy the air conditioning or warmth during the winter.

Has the house sat unoccupied for a while?  Have you heard noises inside of the ductwork?  Do you have pets or did the previous owner?  Are you experiencing unusually high dust inside of your home?  Are your allergies more severe?

Amistee has encountered things inside of the ductwork from ordinary to strange and everything in between.  How does a full pair of snow boots end up inside of the ductwork, Pet hair, Animals?

Most interesting is our Air Duct pets.  These are the little guys who find a home inside of someone’s ductwork.  They might be looking for a warm place in the winter or just the smallest opening in the ducts.

But Heating & Cooling Air Ducts are not the only “duct” to be affected by animals.  We experience a large number of birds that build nest inside of Dryer Vents.  The dryer duct opening is the perfect size for a nest and the birds will stay warm with each use of the dryer.  The long term concern is the dryer slowing down and not working properly.  After Amistee completely cleans out a bird nest from the Dryer Vent, we can install a vent cap or bird cage to prevent future feathered residents.

The strength of our vacuum truck and powerful cleaning tools can remove all visible dirt, debris and items from inside of your Air Duct System or your Dryer Vent.  Amistee Air Duct Cleaning provides service to residential and commercial customers.  No job is too big or too small.
