Dryer Vent Cleaning

Why Should I Clean My Dryer Vent?

 

Lint build-up in your dryer vents can cause reduced airflow, which in turn causes overheating. When this happens the high temperature limit safety switch cycles on and off. Most switches weren’t designed to cycle on and off continuously which can cause them to fail.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission shows that there are an estimated annual 15,500 fires, 10 deaths, and 310 injuries associated with clothes dryers.

Accumulation of lint and reduced exhaust airflow provide conditions ripe for a fire. Lint is highly combustible and one of the main ingredients in a recipe for home-made fire starters.

Who Needs This Service?

Almost everyone with a dryer needs this service! Especially those homes with dryers located on inside walls, or those located on second floor laundry rooms. These centralized locations cause dryers to be vented greater distances, sometimes 50 feet or more. This increases the risk for lint buildup and other obstructions which can seriously affect the dryer’s performance.
