Dryer Vent Cleaning
Protect Your Home from Safety Hazards and Debris
Dryers over the years have become essential appliances in the household. But with a machine producing that much heat, you want to make sure that your dryer vents are cleaned annually to remove the lint and debris that builds up through continuous usage.
Dryer Cleanings Increase Efficiency & Promote Safety
Each year, approximately 25,000 house fires are started from the dryer. With all of the lint that a dryer accumulates, it becomes easy for your system to clog—blocking proper airflow and, in turn, causing overheating and fires.
Here are some red flags warning you that your dryer vent needs to be cleaned:
- Your clothes take longer and longer to dry. This means that your vent has become clogged and needs to be cleaned out. Otherwise, your system will have to work longer to properly dry items. And as your utility bills go up, your dryer’s lifespan goes down—leaving you with an overheating system that can potentially catch fire.
- Your clothing and dryer are very hot. When a dryer is working properly, the exhaust removes air that has become excessively hot. If your dryer or clothes are very hot to the touch, this means that this air is not leaving your system, and your vent needs to be cleaned out by a professional.
- It’s been longer than a year since your last inspection. Dryer vents should be cleaned every year to maximize your system’s efficiency, and to remove the lint and debris that can clog your system and become a fire hazard.
- You notice a burning smell coming from your dryer. Any burning smell coming from your dryer should warrant extreme caution. Because lint is so flammable, the debris that’s clogging your exhaust can catch fire. If you ever notice a burning smell, shut off your dryer immediately and call a professional.
