|Can Mountain Aire clean my clothes dryer
Yes! The same equipment that does such a great job
cleaning your air ducts will also clean your dryer vent.
Thousands of house fires occur every year in the
United States due to lint build up in dryer vents. Many
dryer vents can be cleaned by the homeowner because
they are short in length and easily accessible. But,
many pass through the attic and are very difficult for a
home owner to clean. If this is your case simply call
Mountain Aire for an appointment. A typical home
dryer vent can be cleaned for $85.00

Did you know that dryer vent fires are more common
than chimney fires?
* The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports
dryer related home fires are on the increase. CPSC
figures show that in 1997 there were 16,800 dryer fires
which caused 30 deaths, 430 injuries and 97.3 million
dollars in property damage.
* Flammable lint, and dirt and dust accumulate quite
rapidly inside the dryer vent (the lint screen does not
catch all of it).
* It is recommended that dryer vents and the dryer
chassis be cleaned out every 3 - 6 months depending
on the extent of the use of your dryer.
Dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency
of your dryer. As dryer vents become filled with lint and
other debris, drying time increases and can cause the
dryer itself to overheat. This increases energy
consumption since the dryer has to run longer to dry
your clothes and can also cause fires in the dryer or
the dryer duct.
If you notice that your dryer is running longer than it
used to, you may need to have your dryer vent cleaned.
Mountain Aire has a machine 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. While dryer vents are routinely blocked
with lint, animal nesting is also another frequent cause
of dryer vent blockage and our equipment allows us to
remove these blockages as well.
