Why should I clean my dryer vents?
There's a hidden fire hazard in every home...it's the dryer vent. Over time, the dryer vent fills with the lint that gets by the dryer's lint trap. Here are some facts:
*The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that over 15,000 clothes dryer related fires occur every year.
*Accumulation of lint and reduced exhaust air flow provide conditions ripe for a fire. Lint is highly combustible and one of the main ingredients in a recipe for homemade firestarters.
Who needs this service?
Almost everyone with a dyer needs this service! Especially those homes with dryers located on inside walls or those located on 2nd 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 that can seriously affect the dryers performance.
If you answer YES to any of these questions, you need your dryer vent cleaned:
1) Does it take more than one cycle to dry your clothes?
2) Is the dryer vent hood flapper able to open?
3) Are the clothes coming out of the dryer hotter than normal?
