Why Is It Important to Get My Dryer Vent Cleaned ?
Regular dryer vent cleaning is the best method to save money.
If dryer vents are dirty or lint build-up, dryers take longer time to dry clothes, the amount of
wasted energy can be substantial.
Clean dryer vent can reduce dryer damage and extend dryer's life.
Dryer vent cleaning can greatly reduce fire hazard.
Cleaning out the lint filter from your dryer is not enough, since some lint escapes gradually
building up in the dryer's vent causing blockage. Lint blockage can lead to a higher utility bill
since the dryer needs to work harder and longer to dry the clothes. This blockage can be a
serious problem, because lint is highly flammable it can cause a fire in your home and
damage to your property.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are an estimated annual
15,500 fires associated with the dryer vent. Several hundred people a year are also subjected
to carbon monoxide poisoning from improper dryer vent setups. The financial costs come to
nearly $100,000,000 per year.
