What Are the The Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning ?
Regular dryer vent cleaning is the best method to save money.
1. You can save money with regular dryer vent cleaning and maintenance.
A half inch lint build up in a four foot dryer vent could slow down your dryer by up to 50%
making you need to do extra cycles to get through a single load of laundry. This not only
does this eat up precious time off your busy day, it also inflates your monthly electric bill
needlessly.You can save up to $25 each month in electric usage.
2. Clean dryer vents help prolonging the life-span of your dryer
If dryer vents have lint build up, it is forced to work extra hard to be able to get the job done
and this will only hasten its deterioration. Less time running the dryer, meaning the dryer
will last longer.
3. Clogged and dirty dryer vents is a common fire hazard
Lint is very flammable. A single spark can start a localized flame that can easily spread
when it comes into contact with other highly flammable items like clothes and fabrics. Your
dryer produces and uses hot air in order to dry your clothes and having lint build up on your
dryer vents will make your dryer retain more heat because its exhaust is clogged so there’s
no way for the heat to escape.
