Dryer Vent Cleaning

Got lint?

You might not think about it much, but drying clothes, linens, and bedding is a large part of life. A residential dryer goes to work anywhere from two to 10 times a week and collects a great deal of lint in the process. From 2010 to 2014, fire departments responded to an average of 15,970 fires a year that were caused by either dryers or their neighboring washing machines. So, in other words, this is quite a legitimate concern.

Dryer vent safety – take this cleaning seriously

6 advantages of dryer vent cleaning

prevent dryer fires

Lint build-up in your dryer has the capability to catch on fire. If you want to reduce the risk of dryer fires in your home, you have to have your dryer vent professionally cleaned.

By removing the lint and other buildups from your dryer vent, you leave nothing for sparks to catch. If a spark has nothing to catch, it won’t start a fire. It’s as simple as that.

save energy

Over time, dryer vents accumulate dust and debris, leaving less room through which exhausted air can travel. This, of course, results in a greater expenditure of energy.

If you want to save energy, you need to professionally clean your dryer vent so there is no undue strain upon the dryer requiring additional energy to do it’s job.

reduce wear and tear

The dirtier a dryer vent is, the harder its adjoining dryer has to work. The harder a dryer has to work, the more wear and tear it will incur.

In order for your dryer to run optimally, you should have your dryer vent professionally cleaned at least once yearly. For households of 5+ people, consider a cleaning every six to nine months.

faster dry times

 The more lint that a dryer vent collects, the less efficiently the dryer will run. It’s not only wasting energy, it will take more time as well. In fact, in some cases, it could prevent clothes or bedding from being dried fully in a single cycle.

This may force you to monitor your dryer carefully and run it in quick succession—for if you fail to do so, your clothes and bedding may take on a musty odor and dingy appearance.


reduce allergens

One issue with a dirty dryer vent is that it traps water from wet clothing. Once this water is trapped, it attracts all sorts of allergens from mold to dust and much, much more.

Unfortunately, over time, these allergens can spread to the rest of your home. Don’t live in an allergy den. Have your dryer vent professionally cleaned so you can breathe easy.

eliminate risk of carbon monoxide poisoning

Do you use a gas dryer or an electrical one? Gas dryers produce carbon monoxide. If the dryer vent is clogged, the carbon monoxide could back up into the dryer and be released into the home, creating a dangerous environment for everyone living there.

Carbon monoxide is not something to mess around with, as it can be fatal. So, be sure to have that dryer vent professionally cleaned every year – your life could depend on it.
