Dryer Vent Cleaning in Orlando, FL
Professional Residential & Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning in Orlando
Did you know that the leading cause of dryer fires is a failure to clean the dryer? Unfortunately, it happens all too often. At Steamatic of Central Florida, we want to make sure it never happens to our friends, neighbors, and customers in Orlando. That’s why we use the very latest in tools, technology, and techniques to keep residential and commercial dryers clean and working at peak efficiency.
Dryer vent cleaning removes all the built-up lint in your dryer, accumulating when debris gets past the lint trap. That accumulation can lead to overheating that can ignite the dry fibers, causing a fire. You may hear the service referred to as different names, such as dryer duct cleaning, dryer vent sweeps, or dryer exhaust sweeps, but they all mean getting rid of the material in your dryer vents that can cause problems. Lint in your dryer ducts is not only a fire hazard, but it can also prevent your dryer from working efficiently and may shorten the life of your appliance. Request service today with our skilled technicians to clean out your dryer vents.

Dryer Vent Safety Facts
- The U.S. Fire Administration cites that there are 2900 home clothes dryer fires every year resulting in an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. And the leading cause: failure to clean them.

Warning Signs that Your Dryer Vent Needs to Be Cleaned
- The dryer is producing heat, but the time it takes to dry clothes takes longer and longer.
- After a cycle is complete the clothes are noticeably hotter than usual.
- Your laundry room has a lot of moisture build-up or even a musty smell.
How To Prevent Dryer Fires

- Have gas-powered dryers inspected every year by a professional
There are many reasons you need to pay closer attention to your dryer health.
Lint Buildup Costs You More Money
It takes more and more energy to dry your clothes when the vents are clogged with lint. That means higher energy bills. You may even waste money on purchasing a new dryer when all you needed was for Steamatic of Central Florida to clean and inspect your existing one. That means that having us service your dryer virtually pays for itself.
Cleaning Your Dryer Prevents Fire
The National Fire Safety Administration cites a recent study that revealed that the leading items that started fires in dryers were lint, fiber, dust, and clothing. Lint is highly flammable, even used by some for starting campfires. The overheating from lack of sufficient airflow can also ignite clothing.
It’s Not Just Lint That Poses a Threat
The risk of fire is only part of the picture. Many people fall victim to carbon monoxide poisoning every year that can build up from improper or blocked ventilation. That’s why you must regularly schedule professional cleaning and inspection for your Orlando residential or commercial dryers from the experienced professionals at Steamatic of Central Florida.

Regular dryer vent cleaning can save you anywhere from 10%-20% on your electricity bill annually. The longer you run an inefficient dryer, the more energy it takes. Not only does it require more energy to get your clothes dry, but it takes more to cool your home, as the dryer can take in the air conditioning around it at a rate of up to 200 cubic feet per minute, more than leaving a window or door open.
