Dirty Clothes Dryers Are A Fire Hazard! Plastic Venting Not Up To Code
inside dryer
This is an image of the inside of a clothes dryer before we cleaned it this July.  It hasn't been dramatized at all. Take note of the burned lint near the heating element.  This was the second dryer we discovered like this within 2 days. This was a dangerous situation. This plastic vent has been cut open with shears.  This is the condition in which we found it.  No lint added.  Plastic venting does not comply with current building codes.  It will not contain a fire and is therefore unsafe.  It can also be crushed easily behind the dryer not allowing air to exhaust properly.  Lint also catches in the ridges of plastic venting fairly easily.

About Us

LintBusters offers professional dryer vent cleaning, installation and inspection services.  We service individual homeowners, homeowner associations, management companies and laundromats in Northern Westchester, Fairfield and Putnam counties.  We are licensed and insured.  Our office is in Patterson, NY.

If you're like most of our customers you're concerned about the fire hazard presented by lint accumulations in the dryer vent and the dryer itself.  Dryer vent cleaning significantly reduces this fire hazard.  It also reduces the amount of time it takes to dry each load of laundry which saves you money on your electric bill.  

As a general rule we recommend the dryer vent and dryer itself be cleaned every 2 years.  This is enough time for a significant lint build up to accumulate.  In addition if you answer "yes" to one or more of the questions below you should have your dryer vent system professionally serviced soon:

1. Does your dryer take more than one cycle to dry a load of laundry?

Is your outside vent blocked by a birds nest or otherwise obstructed?

Is your dryer vented with plastic or vinyl venting as opposed to metal venting?

Does your dryer vent into the basement, attic, wall or eaves as opposed to the outdoors?

Is your dryer vent crushed or kinked behind the dryer?

Do you smell smoke or a burning smell when the dryer is running?
LintBusters is independently owned and operated by Charlie Gossett.  We're a small business that launched in March of 2006.  From 2003-'06 Gossett worked for Air Duct Cleaning Company Inc., during which time he successfully developed their dryer vent cleaning division.  Gossett has serviced well over a thousand vents during this time and has the experience and know how to provide professional dryer venting solutions for you.
