Dryer Vent Cleaning in Des Moines & Ames

Our experts are ready and able to provide you with a clean dryer vent – this will protect you from an expensive and possibly deadly fire in your home. These fires, which start in the dryer, are completely preventable.

According to a recent study by FEMA, 28% of residential clothes dryer fires were caused by dust, fiber, and lint. In fact, each year there are an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires causing an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries and $35 million in property loss. How long has it been since you cleaned your dryer vent?

Providing you with a clean dryer vent line is a standard job for the Supreme Dryer Vent cleaning service professionals in Des Moines and Ames. Rick will follow your dryer venting system from one end to the other in order to guarantee that your dryer vent is clean and safe from the fibers and lint which create a fire hazard.

Emptying your lint trap does not mean that you have a clean dryer vent!

Even though you clean out the dryer lint trap each time you dry a load of laundry, that is only the initial step in fire prevention. But it is not at all sufficient to offer you protection from the dangers of a dryer vent fire. In most houses, the dryer vent exits through the roof.

This means that a fire starting in the dryer vent will travel up – all the way through the dryer vent tube to the rooftop, taking the fire with it up through the attic and roof. Unfortunately, the inside wall of your vent tube is coated with fabric fibers and dust. A clean dryer vent will mean that these fibers no longer are inside your vent, protecting you from a fire.

How long does it take to dry a load of clothes?

If you are finding that it takes more than one cycle to dry a normal load of laundry then that means you do not have sufficient air flow. This lack of air flow is caused by a restriction in the dryer vent usually due to a buildup of lint. As more and more lint builds up you will get less and less air flow, which results in more dryer time in order to dry a single load of laundry. One of the popular places for lint to build up is a screen on your dryer vent.

The problem with this, in addition to the fact that you have to spend more time and money, is the danger of a fire due to restricted air flow. Rick Hamilton of Supreme Dryer Vent Cleaning in Des Moines and Ames can show you exactly what your air flow is before cleaning with his “Air Flow Meter” and his “Air Vane Anemometer.” You will have the evidence you need to determine if your dryer vent line needs to be cleaned. Then, when the job is done, you will be able to see if the cleaning was done correctly by reading the results of the two testers mentioned above.

  • review rating 5  They came out and cleaned my vent. They did not try to tell me that I needed all kinds of other services or that I needed to replace or repair anything, and I appreciate that. They did what I asked and they did a good job.

  • review rating 5  From a friendly and helpful phone call with Rick, to the best cleaning and service from Doug and Wyatt, Supreme Air Duct Cleaning was a pleasure to have work on our house. We recently bought an old 1930's house that had been smoked in and neglected for years and I wasn't sure what to expect. Our HVAC system looks brand new again and we can take a deep relaxed breath.

    thumb Morgan Elrod

The team was professional, detailed and did an excellent job. They know the business of ducts and vents inside and out. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Rick Hamilton is a professional who will provide you with a peace of mind!

Rick is a high school teacher and sports coach who found a very efficient way of cleaning dryer vent lines. His very own dryer vent was causing him problems and after trying rotary brushes and a couple of other methods, he finally discovered a highly effective air cleaning system. After a few neighbors asked him to clean their vents with his special “air system” he saw that this could be a valuable service to others as well. That is when he expanded his business to include dryer vent cleaning in Des Moines, Ames and the other nearby areas.

Rick researched and learned everything he could about dryer venting and he even became a “Certified Dryer Vent Technician” by passing a rigorous test produced by the National Chimney Sweep Association. Rick is the only “Certified Dryer Vent Technician” in the state of Iowa. You can rest assured he knows everything about dryer vents! Rick is also fully licensed and insured. You can learn more about him and his services here.

The LintAlert®  Protection Device

The LintAlert device should be added as part of every home safety plan. As lint naturally builds up over time, LED indicators progressively illuminate to show how effectively the dryer is exhausting. When airflow restriction becomes dangerous, an alarm is triggered.

We can sell you a LintAlert & install it cheaper than you can buy it anywhere else! Here is what it looks like installed:

Quick response and great results getting massive bird's nest from stove vent...no more setting off alarm every time anything smokes a little on the stove...Thanks!!

These guys are now my new “home comfort heros” for a fraction of the cost of a different company. Doug and Owen were so nice and professional. It shows that they truly care about their clients and they take pride in the work they do. In and out in just a few hours and they put back everything they had to move. The before and after pics were amazing. The air quality already seems better! My dryer vent is now safe and will actually dry my clothes! What a relief to know no fires will be started. Their equipment is the same as others and they are just as well qualified. Don’t waste your money on a big name (too big for their work quality) company...go with Rick and his guys. You won’t be sorry you did. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Rick, Doug, and Owen. I will call again next time.
