Dryer Vent Cleaning
Could your Dryer Vent be in need of a cleaning?
Our Dryer Vent Cleaning services help ensure your home is both safe and your dryer is running at top efficiency! Most of the time we think clearing the lint trap to our dryer is enough. The fact is, overtime lint can build up in your dryer and the dryer vent which will reduce air flow. A clogged dryer vent makes your dryer work harder than it needs to increasing the risk of overheating and causing unnecessary inefficiencies.
Don’t wait until it’s too late!
Lint is one of the most flammable items in your home. Our Service Professional will disassemble your dryer, thoroughly vacuum the lint trap, the blower wheel, around the heating element and the entire inside of the dryer. We do this to reduce the amount of lint inside and around the element, to reduce the risk of dryer fires.

What sets us apart from other providers in the corridor is that we not only clean the dryer duct but we also fix the problem at the source, the dryer. Dryer fires can still start in the dryer even if the vent has been cleaned. Here at Corridor Duct Cleaning we care about the safety of your family and work to prevent the risks that clogged vents and a non-maintained dryer can cause.
