    Do you carry or know of a source where I could get a brush to clean the lint out of a 4" dryer vent. The run is about 30 feet. Thanks.


    Chimney sweeping rods are 6 feet each, but screw together to any length. 4" and smaller brushes are also available. - they are sold as either "boiler brushes" or "Pellet vent" brushes.

    How about trying to blow it out with a leaf blower? This has worked for me on similar situations. Just make certain that you have the far end out the window or outside!

    The brushes are called Pellet Vent (smaller sizes) and are at:

    example of rod types is at:
