The Importance Of Regular Dryer Vent Cleanings

Has your clothes dryer been functioning less efficiently than normal? If so, you may be thinking it is time to purchase a new one. Well, before you run to the store, consider investing in a dryer vent cleaning first. Many times, homeowners purchase an entirely new appliance, only to discover that some venting-related maintenance was actually all they needed.

Schedule an annual vent cleaning with our CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians today to ensure you get the high-quality results you deserve. Our experts are just a quick phone call away.

Faster, More Efficient Results

As we said, a dirty dryer vent can lead to less efficiency from your appliance. If you notice your clothes are taking an unusually long amount of time to dry, then your vents are the likely culprit. Running cycle after cycle can take up a lot of your day, and it does not do your energy bill any favors, either. Save yourself stress, hassle, and money by letting our team check things over. This is one investment that is well worth every penny.

A Clean Dryer Is A Safer Dryer

Another major reason why dryer vent care is so important is that your chances of experiencing a fire increase significantly when things are clogged up. If heat and fumes cannot escape, the machine could overheat in a hurry and send your flammable lint up in flames.

Close to 3,000 fires occur every single year because of issues with the dryer, leading to many injuries, millions of dollars worth of damage, and even loss of life. Why do most of these occur? Because the dryer vent was not regularly cleaned. It is not worth taking any chances, so get our team on the job today.

Other Threats

Unfortunately, fires are not the only threat you potentially face when it comes to clogged up vents. Another risk is carbon monoxide exposure. Gases need to escape your home as your dryer runs and, if the pathways are blocked, they will simply turn around and enter your home. Since carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless many do not detect its presence until it is too late.

Regular maintenance is a surefire way to prevent exposure, as is having carbon monoxide detectors installed throughout your home. These easy steps could make all the difference when it comes to keeping your family as safe as possible, so invest in the care and attention you deserve today.
