Dryer Vents

At Blackburn’s Chimney, we offer a variety of venting services to keep your dryer vents in proper working order. Our technicians are trained to correct problems that are often the cause of poorly performing dryers.

Proper Ventilation Means Energy Efficiency

Dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer installation.

As dryer vents become filled with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer itself to overheat. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports dryer related home fires are on the increase.

If you have noticed that your dryer is running longer than it used to you may need to have the dryer vent cleaned. Some dryer vents are relatively short and straight and can be cleaned easily by the homeowner, but others aren’t that easy and may require the use of special tools and equipment. We have tools specifically designed to clean dryer vents and with these tools we are able to do a thorough job of cleaning even the most difficult installations.

Another problem created by blocked dryer vents serving gas dryers is the possibility of carbon monoxide seepage into your home. If the dryer is not exhausting properly to the outdoors, CO can back up into the home.

We measure the duct backpressure before and after the cleaning process to determine the effectiveness of the cleaning. This also helps insure your dryer duct installation does not exceed recommended limits.
