A Dryer Vent Cleaning Keeps Your Dryer Efficient and Safe
You may not give it much thought, but your clothes dryer does a lot of work, day in and day out. And with each load of laundry, lint, dust, and debris are filtered into the vents and taken out of the home. But what happens when this lint and debris builds up inside of the vents?
An array of consequences can spawn from a neglected and dirty dryer vent, including:
- Inefficiency & Shortened Dryer Life – If the venting attached to your clothes dryer is filled with lint, air flow will be restricted, and your dryer will need to work longer, harder, and hotter in order to adequately dry your clothing. This restricted air flow leads to inefficiency, wasted time, and repeat cycles, and can overwork your dryer and shorten its service life.
- House Fire – When most homeowners think about house fires, they think of electrical fires, chimney fires, or kitchen fires. But in reality, clothes dryers are responsible for thousands upon thousands of house fires each and every year. Most of the clothes dryer related fires here in the U.S. result from neglected dryer vents, which can be prevented with regular cleanings.
There can also be other hidden issues within your dryer vents, like nesting animals. Fur, feathers, twigs, leaves, and other materials that animals and birds bring into vents can also restrict air flow and cause a chimney fire.
