Dryer vent cleaning companies use a variety of specialized tools and equipment to ensure that dryer vents are properly cleaned and maintained. This includes a ventilation cleaning machine such as the Rotovent-VAC II, a video inspection camera, parts and accessories like HEPA filters, power cables, extensions, soft bristle brushes, and nebulizers. Additionally, a professional quality air compressor is needed to remove dirt and debris from the air ducts. The Rotovent-VAC II is a high-performance vacuum with three motors and HEPA filtration that allows for the professional cleaning of residential and commercial dryer vents.
It is available with a brushing system and a tool kit. The Roto-Vision video inspection camera and i2cam video inspection camera are used to inspect the dryer vents for any potential issues. In addition to the specialized equipment, professionals may also use a truck-mounted vacuum or a portable vacuum to vacuum up debris and clean air ducts. A mixer and air wash require an air compressor to help move debris to the vacuum manifold.
Cleaning the air ducts requires a high-powered compressor that typically exceeds 18-20 CFM and a pressure of 175 PSI. Cleaning dryer vents is an important service for preventing fires in dryer racks. It is also necessary to ensure that drying time is not increased dramatically or that clothes do not remain wet after drying. As such, many homeowners turn to professionals to handle the cleaning. For those looking to start their own dryer vent cleaning business, there are packages available that combine cleaning the ventilation grilles with cleaning the air ducts. Additionally, there are franchises available for those who don't want to worry about marketing and other matters. Professional dryer vent cleaners use specialized equipment such as ventilation cleaning machines, video inspection cameras, HEPA filters, power cables, extensions, soft bristle brushes, nebulizers, truck-mounted vacuums, portable vacuums, mixers, air washes, and high-powered compressors to ensure that dryer vents are properly cleaned and maintained.
This helps prevent fires in dryer racks and ensures that drying time is not increased dramatically or that clothes do not remain wet after drying.
