The Importance of Dryer Vent Cleaning…
When a dryer vent and the dryer ducts are clogged with lint, air flow is restricted, causing your dryer to work harder and use more energy. This creates higher utility bills and a greater chance of the appliance breaking down. Appliance repairs and/or replacement can be expensive. You can prolong the life of your clothes dryer with proper dryer vent cleaning and maintenance.
Signs That Your Dryer Vent Needs Cleaning:
- Dry cycles take much longer than they used to.
- Clothes either come out way too hot, or still slightly damp.
- Lint is noticeably built up and not adhering completely to filter.
- Room gets noticeably hotter when dryer is running.
The Scary Part of Clogged Dryer Vents:
The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that more than 15,000 clothes dryer related fires occur annually. There are over 20 deaths, 320 injuries, as well as over $244 million in damaged property in recent years as stated by the commission. The most frequent place to begin for such fires was the dryer vent area. The dryer usually overheats, the lint then catches fire, and of course the fire will certainly be helped by combustibles within the immediate vicinity.
