Here at Chills On Wheels, we offer Dryer Vent Cleaning services for your home or business.

Call Chills On Wheels Heating & Air Contractors to clean your dryer vents and ensure your home and family are safe from an unnecessary fire! Our technicians are experts on removing all of the harmful build-ups in your dryer vents!
When preparing to clean your vents, we will go to the exterior of your home and remove the coverings from the exit point of your dryer vent. We will connect a high-powered, industrial-strength vacuum up to your interior vent and begin sucking out the built-up lint that gets trapped inside of your dryer-vent. Meanwhile, on the outside, we will use the rotary brush system to start scraping, cleaning, and removing any lint that has gotten stuck in the pipes so that it is all sucked down to the bottom of the vacuum cleaner.
The process is very safe, very contained, and you don't have to worry about any allergens getting into the air when getting your vents serviced with Chills On Wheels. Everything that happens occurs within the pipes and vacuum cleaner, so there's no need for cleanup after the job.
Often, people think that they may have a malfunctioning dryer because it's not drying their clothing items correctly. Most of the time, if you're experiencing this, it's because your vents are clogged up, and there's not enough airflow for the dryer to work properly.
With a clogged pipe, you also invite mold and bacteria to build up in the vents, which can become dangerous to those living in your home. It can also create overheating, leading to a fire if not taken care of immediately (fun fact: 15,500 US home fires contributed to dirty dryer vents each year). Lint is one of the most flammable things in your home, and it's the last thing you are thinking about.
