Why Dryer Vent Cleaning is Extremely Important.

Why Dryer Vent Cleaning is Extremely Important.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, dryers were the cause of more than 18,000 U.S. home fires last year. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer hose and vent duct, reducing air flow, backing up exhaust gases and eventually creating a fire.

Keeping you and your family safe is a top priority, but there are additional benefits of using Gator Clean for your dryer vent. A clean vent means efficient drying, which saves money. Your clothing should only take one cycle to dry. If it's taking longer, that's a sign you are due for a cleaning.

You'll save time and aggravation with a clean vent. Instead of watching over laundry, you'll be free to do more important things.

A clear dryer vent prevents a fire. 98% of your vent can't be seen. It's confined to areas inside your walls, floor joist, crawl space and attic. When you hire a trained professional who has seen every make and model dryer that exists, they have all the appropriate equipment to do the job correctly.

Signs your dryer vent needs to be cleaned:

  • It's been a year since the last cleaning.
  • Drying time takes longer and longer.
  • You can smell something burning. Lint is extremely flammable.

Larger households or those with shedding pets should have their vents cleaned more often.

Just because you can't see the problem doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Dryer vent fires claim lives and cause millions of dollars' worth of damage every year. Dryer Vent Cleaning should be a regular part of every household maintenance plan.

What Your Neighbors Say About Gator Clean

I hired Gator Clean to clean my carpets, home air ducts, and dryer duct and vent. Danielle and Kelly were pleasant, cheerfully answered my many questions, and did a thorough job. My carpet is old (10+ years) and had not been cleaned in a few years due to COVID; it ended up looking nicer than I expected! I was especially impressed by how careful they were with my possessions (e.g., covering things to protect them from dust that might fall from a ceiling vent) and how well they cleaned up afterward. This was my first experience with the company and I am impressed!

When I called Gator Clean, I left a message inquiring about their services and pricing. I received a return call with 10 minutes. I found the prices and availability to be better than other companies. They came out within a week and cleaned my air ducts. They were ON TIME, FRIENDLY, and PROFESSIONAL. They explained the entire process, did a fantastic job and cleaned up after ducts were cleaned. Other companies need to take lessons from their staff! Highly recommend Gator Clean.

I contacted Gator Clean to clean our dryer vent. Daniele was professional and set the appointment for the next day. She and Kelly arrived on time, very conscientious of our home. Cleaned our dryer vent and cleaned up behind themselves! Quick and efficient. Will definitely be using them again in the future!

Cost Factors in Cleaning the Air Ducts of a Florida Home.

Cost Factors in Cleaning the Air Ducts of a Florida Home.

The cost of maintaining a home can add up pretty fast. Unlike renting, homeowners are solely responsible for repairs and upkeep of the various parts of their house. Some maintenance issues are more pressing than others, leaving many problems to simmer on the back burner. This has the potential to create a more giant headache out of issues you thought weren't that big of a deal.
