People ask why it is important to have their dryer vent cleaned. Let us give you some facts. Though it is important to be regularly cleaning the lint trap in your dryer, this is often not enough. In time, lint will build up in the nooks and crannies of the lint trap and along the dryer ducts and vent. When this happens, it could cause a lot of problems.
A lint clogged dryer vent puts enormous stress on you dryer. This could cause constant breakdowns and will reduce the life of your appliance and it’s parts. On top of this, it will make your dryer less energy efficient because it’s ability to exhaust heat and moisture is reduced due to a restricted airflow. When this happens, you will notice that a load of clothes dries longer than usual. People first notice this in heavies like towels or jeans. The dryer is one of the most expensive appliances that you operate in your home. Cleaning your dryer vent could result in significant reduction in energy bills.
A dirty or obstructed vent can cause an enormous amount of dust and particles to escape into your home and living space. Regular dryer vent cleaning will improve the air quality in your home.
Here’s the most convincing argument to having regular dryer vent maintenance. Each year, 15,000 structure fires occur due to dryers. The cause? Clogged vents. Lint located within just two inches of your dryer’s heater intake can ignite placing you and your family in the danger.
