Dryer Vent Cleaning for Condos, Villas & Town Homes

People living in Condos, Villas, and Town Homes tend to have a few more problems with their dryer vent. Some of the older condominiums share a common dryer vent.  Residents in the condominium often complain about getting the neighbor’s dryer exhaust in their laundry room and dryer. This leads to a warm, moist laundry room and condensation (water) settling on the inside of the dryer door and inside the drum of the dryer.

Another problem is a shared vent hood cover which is located at the termination point of the dryer vent.  The termination point of the dryer vent is usually located on the roof of the structure. Although the dryer vents are separate to each unit, the units share this common termination point on the roof. These units also experience the dryer exhaust from the neighbors, getting condensation inside the dryer and a warm, moist, laundry room.  If this problem sounds familiar, get in touch with D.V.C. today.

Symptoms to Look Out For

All of these are classic signs that your dryer vent needs to be cleaned. Cleaning the dryer vent allows your dryer to efficiently get rid of the warm moist air that your clothes produce when they dry. A dryer vent clogged with lint does not let this warm, moist air escape through the vent. This is what causes the dryer to be the #1 household appliance to catch fire. Reduce your risk of fire and have your dryer vent cleaned regularly.

  • When you are drying clothes does your laundry room get warm?
  • Have you noticed lint starting to settle in your laundry room?
