Dryer Vent Cleaning in Minneapolis-St. Paul
Keeping Your Home Safe

Homeplace Furnace provides dryer vent cleaning services in St. Paul and Minneapolis for homes and commercial buildings. Our specialized approach ensures the safety, integrity, and efficiency of your dryer vent system to keep your dryers running effectively, and to extend the service life of your dryers. Our exclusive strategy for dryer vent cleaning includes:

Visual Review: Every service kicks off with an in-depth visual review. One of our skilled technicians will examine your dryer vent system and provide suggestions tailored to its needs.

Assessing Airflow: To grasp the depth of any obstructions, we gauge both airflow and back pressure. This helps in determining the exact nature of the blockages.

Eliminating Obstructions: From lint accumulations to misplaced clothing items, and even bird nests, our team ensures they remove anything that obstructs your dryer vent, restoring its safety and efficiency.

Vent Line Sanitization: The presence of debris, especially animal nests, can lead to harmful contaminants in the vent lines. Whenever such threats are identified, we ensure the vent line is sanitized to eliminate any potential health risks.

Booster Fan Maintenance: For dryer vent lines exceeding 35 feet, a booster fan is often needed. We include booster fan cleaning as an integral part of our services, ensuring your entire system runs optimally.

Comprehensive Lint Screen Cleaning: While clearing the lint screen after each use is a common practice, our service delves deeper. We offer a detailed lint screen cleaning to further boost airflow and improve the overall efficiency of your dryer.

We also have a specialized method for ensuring your dryer lines are clean. At Homeplace Furnace Duct and Fireplace Cleaning, Inc., our specially designed rotary air sweep, powered by 250 pounds of air pressure, is our primary approach to cleaning dryer vents. The air sweep is run in a reverse fashion from the exterior of the home back to the dryer vent connection several times. Each time the sweep is worked into the vent line, it forces lint and debris off the sidewalls where the technician can then collect it for disposal.


When your dryer seems to underperform—clothes are still damp after a long drying cycle—the issue is often a congested or obstructed dryer vent line, typically filled with lint and debris. These common culprits that cause dryer vent blockages not only diminish the effectiveness of your dryer, they also pose a significant risk of causing a potentially dangerous fire. Scheduling a routine vent cleaning with our heating contractors in the St. Paul and Minneapolis area will keep your vent lines operating safely and efficiently, and will help prevent a costly dryer fire. We feature several different types of sweeps and can be prepared for whatever job we encounter, whether it is a plugged vent, one with birds’ nests, or a long line with several bends and turns.
Our technicians routinely service over 14,000 dryer vents each year, both residential and commercial. Many of our clients are property managers of apartments and condominium units requesting group rate pricing, which we are happy to provide.

Do not just take our word that dirty dryer vents are a fire hazard. For more information on the hazards of dryer vent fires, please view this CBS Report.
