I was amazed to see the grapefruit sized balls of lint flying from my rooftop clothes dryer vent… lint poof after lint poof, the built-up lint kept coming. Never did I estimate that much lint could have accumulated…however my new dryer gave me a hint when its AF indicator lit-up. I knew there was only one person to call: David Harris, Sr., owner of Black Hat Cleaning Services.  David has spent 45 years providing dryer vent and chimney cleaning services that help homeowners keep their homes safe from clothes dryer vent and chimney fires.  

Backed-up lint is a fire hazard

Heat from your dryer can cause it to combust and potentially cause a house fire.  The number of home fires caused by inadequate cleaning is staggering. Research by, National Fire Protection Association reports that dryers and washing machines cause nearly 16,000 fires each year, with dryers causing 92% of them an average of $200 million in property damage (Mar. 8, 2022), and unfortunately some result in many injuries and death. Harris commented, “Families who use their dryers a lot should add a professional dryer vent cleaning to their spring-cleaning list.”

For some, dryer vents are out of sight, out of mind.  Having your dryer vents cleaned can reduce energy costs, remove pollutants or allergens. “I customize my cleaning services to each client’s needs. Using technology and proven methods, my results are superior clean.  You’ll see the difference and have a healthier home.  My service goes deep into the duct, removing the lint build-up inside your dryer exhaust duct system. I provide professional dryer vent cleaning services to Tulsa and surrounding areas. Together, we can greatly reduce the risk of lint fire hazards. You can rest assured that the hazard of a dryer fire will be reduced.” said David.
