How we solve your home’s dryer vent lint problem safely and effectively:
Mite-E-Ducts uses various tools and methods to clean the dryer vent. Our most common tool is the “Spinning Reverse Bullet”. It works great on most dryer vents. This device shoots air backwards to the dryer vent termination hood (located outside) at up to 250 psi while pushing itself through the dryer vent. All of the lint is collected outside; most of which is contained in our custom lint catcher. The technician disposes of the lint. Note: There may be some residual lint left behind, but we do our best to collect it all. Our other option, for the really clogged dryer vents, is our Dryer Vent Brush system. (shown in video below). This system scrubs the inside of the duct system and removes all of the heavy build up.
Mite-E-Ducts uses a custom “Lint Catcher” that catches lint that is being cleaned out of your dryer vent. Mite-E-Ducts uses this to keep lint from escaping.
The flexible vent from the Dryer Unit to the wall must be up to date professional grade flexible metal venting or just non-flexible 30 or 26 gauge metal piping. It is a violation of code to use White Vinyl for dryer venting, plus it is a potential fire hazard. The flexible material from the Dryer Unit to the wall is blown out and cleaned along with the dryer venting. Our special pneumatic tools have the ability to remove all kinds of blockages. Including bird nests.

Don’t Let This Happen To You!
This demonstration shows what happens when the highly flammable lint ignites. On the top right you see how flammable and unsafe the White Vinyl is. Can you afford to have it in your home? The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that over 15,500 dryer related fires occur each year and this number is rising at an alarming rate. Last year alone the result was 20 deaths, 320 injuries and over $84 million in property damage.
In addition to lint build up, improper installation of your vent system can also create a serious hazard. Our technicians can detect such problems as improperly routed vents and vents that are damaged or disconnected. Ensure your family’s safety with a professional inspection & cleaning. While most fires start in the dryer, a clogged vent can make for inadequate air flow, making your dryer work much harder.
*Improper dryer vents are a much bigger and more common HAZARD*
