Because the dryer duct is usually only 4 inches in diameter, the slightest amount of deposit can greatly reduce the ability to exhaust. When it starts taking longer to dry your clothes, the problem is not usually the dryer but rather the exhaust system. ACS recommends a dryer vent cleaning every 6 months, based on normal dryer use, to ensure you always have proper airflow.


As more homes have clothes dryers and are built o tighter construction, the proper operation of the dryer becomes critical. Dryers are exhausting air from the house while they are in operation. Gas dryers are also venting the products of combustion in addition to the moisture from the clothes. Lint in the exhaust system can easily become restrictive. Dryers may be located in an area where they must compete for combustion air with gas-ire water heaters and furnaces or boilers. This can lead to life threatening malfunctions on the part of the heating equipment. 

Things to know

When you had your dryer vent cleaned before, did the technician: 

  • Clean your exhaust from both ends
  • Clean the interior compartments after filter and fan
  • Check the hose connection and if you had plastic or foil, recommend a metal one for safety

If you answered no to any of those questions, you did not receive quality service. ACS technicians will answer any questions that you may have and will recommend a change of hose when needed. Our high standards o service will guarantee your satisfaction.
