DRYER VENT CLEANING
Alpine Chimney Sweeps provides professional inspection and cleaning of clothing dryers vents for homeowners, as well as in commercially-owned buildings. Poorly maintained dryer vents cause fire hazards and cost substantially more to operate.
Professional inspection & cleaning
One of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. This moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer as humidity and is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryer's vent. If this air cannot be adequately removed, poor drying will result and temperatures in the vent will rise, sometimes to the point of combustion. Make sure your dryer vents are free-flowing and safe for use by contacting Alpine Chimney Sweeps for a professional inspection and cleaning.

Prolonged use of chimneys often leads to debris build-up that can block the airflow and cause damage if unnoticed. Therefore, it is always a good idea to get your chimneys inspected every year to make sure that they are working fine and do not pose a threat in any way. At Alpine Chimney Sweeps, we are completely transparent and work strictly as per the guidelines of the National Fire Protection Code (NFPA 211). An annual cleaning will also improve the overall performance and the efficiency of your fireplace chimney.
Today, many fireplaces do not yield satisfactory results. Many are old or in disrepair; some do not meet codes of safety clearance to combustibles. Oversized or undersized flues and outside exterior wall construction can result in cold and/or smoky performance. Many metal heat-circulating models are rusted out and dangerous. The fully insulated Super Vent retrofit system available from Alpine Chimney Sweeps corrects these flaws without altering the fireplace facing, transforming your old, damaged fireplace into a restored super-safe high heat source.
