Frequently Asked Questions

  • During the clothes-drying process, your dryer’s lint catcher will collect most of the lint produced by the clothing. However, it’s a matter of time until some of it will get lodged into the dryer vent itself. A dryer hose that has been bent so as to fit into a tight space is even more prone to clogging, causing an estimated 20,000 home fires every year across the country! If your home’s dryer vent is obstructed, dented, or otherwise harmed, then it can quickly build up enough heat inside to start a fire. All of that lint serves as the perfect tinder for a bonfire in your house; Duct Doctor provides professional dryer vent cleaning in Baton Rouge so that this risk is eliminated.

    • Use metal ductwork to lower the risk of heat warping and damage
    • Replace foil or plastic duct systems with semi-rigid ones for better airflow
    • Wash or brush lint screens between every drying session
    • Keep your dryer well-maintained
    • Follow your dryer’s operation manual
    • Don’t put flammable items around your dryer for storage
    • Use dryer ducts that are at least 4-inches in diameter
    • Make sure your dryer venting system exits the home directly
    • Only use a dryer when you are at home and awake
    • Install a screen on the outside vent of your dryer to prevent animals and pests from finding their way inside
    • Don’t overload your dryer
  • If you notice any of the following warning signs, then it’s best to schedule your professional Baton Rouge dryer vent cleaning ASAP:

    • Your clothes are not drying or take too long to dry
    • Clothes come out much hotter than normal based on previous use
    • Your lint trap is not catching any lint despite multiple drying sessions
    • Your dryer vent is kinked or damaged
    • You wash a lot of clothing that has been soaked with flammable materials like gasoline, cooking oil, motor oil, etc.
    • You don’t feel any hot air coming out of your dryer’s ventilation system that runs outside of your home
