While many of the people living in Brevard County work or support NASA, you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to operate the lint trap in your dryer. Once your load is done, you brush the lint off the screen. Simple.
But many people don’t realize they’re supposed to clean their dryer vent at least once a year. If they don’t, the consequences can be dire. By the US Fire Administration’s estimate, the country has about 2,900 dryer fires every year. Of these, about 1,000 are caused when people don’t clean out their dryers. Taking basic steps could save lives and eliminate millions of dollars in property damage.
Homeowners can handle many of these efforts, such as cleaning their lint trap after every use. Still, government agencies and consumer advocate groups recommend that homeowners periodically hire professionals to clean their dryers and dryer vents.

Our dedicated staff is ready to help you protect your home and keep your dryer working like new. We offer quick, affordable dryer vent cleaning services around Melbourne, FL, so you can rest easy without busting open your piggy bank. Not sure if you need to bring in a professional? Here are some questions to consider:
- When was the last time someone cleaned your dryer vent? The US Fire Administration recommends vents be cleaned every three months. Some state fire safety agencies recommend cleaning them at least twice a year. Consumer advocates say the frequency depends on how often you do laundry, but at least once a year is a must.
- How well is your dryer working? A telltale sign you need to clean your dryer vent is if you notice your dryer isn’t working as well as it should. A clogged dryer vent will harm your machine’s efficiency. If your machine isn’t old but is taking two runs to dry clothing, check the dryer vent.
- Is your dryer hot to the touch? Dryers are supposed to get hot, but mostly on the inside. If your dryer’s control area feels unusually hot, it’s a sign hot air isn’t escaping through the vent as it should—likely due to a blockage.
