Cleaning a dryer vent is more than just removing lint and debris. Like any other surface in your home, bacteria, viruses, and fungi can find their way into dryer vents and spread. This is especially true in cases when animals have nested in the vent system. Bird and rodent nests are often found in dryer vents during the cleaning process, and on top of being fire hazards, obstructing airflow, and collecting other debris, they can contain harmful bacteria. Droppings found in nests or left behind can also contain the Histoplasmosis Fungi and/or the Hantavirus.
Dryer Vent Wizard technicians have the knowledge needed to safely remove nests and debris while also considering unseen hazards left behind. Wherever an animal nest or source of potentially harmful bacteria is found, our technicians will administer our professional dryer vent line sanitization. To keep your vent system clean and free of fungi, bacteria, and viruses in the future, our technicians can also install pest-proof vent covers at all termination points in the line.
