HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO CLEAN MY AIR SYSTEM?

WHY CLEAN YOUR DRYER VENTS?
Exhaust airflow provides conditions ripe for a fire. Lint is highly combustible. Lint is also one of the main ingredients in recipes for home-made fire starters.
Proper airflow can decrease drying time, thus decreasing operating costs. It helps the dryer to operate efficiently, which can extend the life of the dryer.
An extra bonus is that clothes will dry at lower temperatures and in less time. This will help to prevent unnecessary wear and tear on clothing, thus extending their life.
WHO NEEDS THIS SERVICE?
Almost everyone. Especially those homes with dryers located on inside walls or those located in second floor laundry rooms. These centralized locations cause dryers to be vented greater distances, up to or over 50 feet. This can result in lint buildup and other obstructions which can seriously affect the performance of dryers.
Most of the dryer manufacturers recommend annually delinting of the dryer vents, for the dryer to work at its maximum efficiency.
