Tuckey Restoration - A Dryer Vent Case StudyProject Overview

A homeowner noticed issues with their dryer’s performance — while the dryer was running and heating up, it failed to dry clothes properly and left them sopping wet. After consulting with an appliance repair provider, the professional concluded that the issue was not with the dryer but with the dryer vent. The vent was blocked, which prevented air from getting out.

Enter Tuckey Restoration with a team of reliable professionals who specialize in expert dryer vent cleaning. After the homeowner gave us a call, our technicians thoroughly cleaned the dryer vent, creating a clear path for air to escape from the dryer through the home’s wall and all the way outside.

The result was improved efficiency and operation of the dryer vent, with the homeowner noting that the time it took to dry a load was reduced by 10 minutes.


Every time you use a dryer, lint comes off the clothes and gets caught in the lint filter. However, only some of the lint and debris make it into the trap. The filter can also get full and lose effectiveness over time. These issues eventually lead to an accumulation of lint and other substances in the dryer vent, which blocks it and prevents air from escaping.

When the homeowner’s dryer vent was blocked due to the lint build-up, the hot air got backed up instead of making it to the outside. As a result, the dryer trapped more moisture on the inside, causing the clothes to remain wet even after going through the drying cycle.


Since the issue was a build-up of lint and other particles in the dryer vent, our technicians performed a comprehensive cleaning to remove the obstructions. We started by disconnecting the dryer vent and using our commercial-grade equipment to clean it thoroughly.

The vent was almost entirely blocked, but our team cleared all the build-up, improving airflow and dryer efficiency.


You can take several measures to prevent dryer vent issues from escalating and hindering the operation of your dryer. These measures include cleaning the lint filter after every use, inspecting dryer vents and removing lint build-up.

Regular cleaning is the ideal solution when dealing with a clogged dryer vent. We recommend professional cleaning every three to five years. Expert technicians from Tuckey Restoration can take care of your dryer vent cleaning needs to help maintain the condition and efficiency of your appliance.


Accumulation of particles in a dryer vent can contribute to operational inefficiencies and reduce the life span of a dryer. Ensuring that your dryer vent is clean is a crucial part of maintenance. With thorough cleaning from our technicians, the homeowner could restore and enhance their dryer’s performance and even save time with every load. Contact us to request service.
