Dryer Vent Cleaning
We all use our dryers, but we rarely think about getting the dryer vent clean (and, if you do, then we appreciate your forward-thinking and safety-mindedness). While we often clean out the lint traps, that’s where the cleaning ends.
We want you to know just how important dryer vent cleaning is. when lint builds up (and it will, even if you take care of that lint trap), it can cause the perfect conditions for a fire. Lint is flammable, and blocked vents create a lot of heat. The two together are an accident waiting to happen.
We don’t want to scare you into cleaning your dryer vents, we only want to help make your home a safe place to live. Call us today, and we can be in and out of your home in no time.

Do I Really Need Dryer Vent Cleaning?
Many people think that by cleaning out their lint trap every so often, they are removing any problems. Well, just as changing the filter on your HVAC system is not going to stop everything from getting through, the lint trap is not going to stop everything either. Over time, lint is going to build up in your dryer vent.
The solution is to have your dryer vents professionally cleaned. The more lint that builds up in your dryer vent, the hotter it is going to get, and the more chance there will be of the lint igniting. Not only that, but that extra heat takes its toll on your dryer.
Clear vents create safety, and allow the hot air to be expended as it should. This only improves the efficiency of your dryer, and positively impacts the quality of your clothes.

How Often Should Dryer Vent Cleaning Be Done?
Dryer vent cleaning should be carried out regularly, and we recommend at least once a year, though various factors will affect that schedule.
If you use it a lot, have heavy loads, or are drying bulky clothing often, you may need to have the vents cleaned more often.
Dryer Vent Cleaning Benefits
Reduced Fire Risk
The more that you use your dryer, the more that lint will build up. Over time, this blocks the vents, and it becomes harder for hot air to be expelled. As the hot air accumulates, the vents become hotter and hotter.
Over time, the lint is going to become hot enough to catch fire. Cleaning your vents takes away that combustible material, leaving no chance of a fire in your vents.
If your vents are blocked, and heat is accumulating, it starts to back up all the way to the dryer. This means that there is more hot air internally, and that starts to affect the motor.
Not only is it having to work harder to expel the air, but it is also working under hotter conditions. The chances of it breaking become more likely, and that costs you money. Clean vents are the solution to this.
Lower Utility Bills
If vents are blocked or partially blocked, the dryer motor has to work harder to expel the air. Dryers already use a lot of power, and this means that they are going to be consuming more.
When you clean your vents, you will have to pay for it, but you will also notice lower utility bills. Having your vents professionally cleaned can save you hundreds of dollars a year.
When the vents are blocked, the heat is trapped in the dryer. This is bad news for your clothes. Heat and moisture are two enemies of clothing and can destroy them over time.
Dryers are designed to work quickly, but blocked vents can slow down the process, leaving heat and moisture in your clothes for longer. Have your dryer vents cleaned and protect your clothing.
