Do I Really Need Dryer Vent Cleaning?
We don’t want to beat around the bush with this so, yes, it is vitally important to have your dryer vent regularly cleaned. Checking your lint trap on your dryer and emptying it when lint starts to accumulate will help a little, but some lint always slips through, and that is where the problems begin.
As lint accumulates, it becomes a fire risk. The heat that is expended from your dryer is very hot, and when a vent is partially blocked, that heat is intensified. Lint is extremely flammable, and it may only be a matter of time before a fire is started.
Even if there is no fire risk, there are multiple reasons to have your vents cleaned. Open vents mean less heat accumulating, and a dryer that does not become overheated will last longer. Less heat also protects your clothes. Give us a call to find out more.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Benefits
Lint will always accumulate in your vent, no matter how diligent you are in checking the lint trap, and the more lint that accumulates, the bigger the risk of a fire.
When the hot air cannot flow freely through your vents, it starts to accumulate and intensify. It can only be a matter of time before there is some damage. Cleaning the vents removes this flammable material.
Save Your Clothes
When too much heat accumulates in your dryer, most likely caused by blocked vents, it can be damaging to your clothes, and you don’t want to ruin your favorite outfit.
Even if you are using a delicate setting, too much heat and moisture can be damaging. With clear vents, the moisture is wicked away, and the heat is quickly expelled. Keep your vents clean and your clothes will stay pristine.
When your vents are blocked, your dryer has to work harder to expel the hot air. This puts a strain on your dryer. As the strain is intensifying, so is the heat, and that only expounds the strain that your dryer is experiencing.
Dryers already use a lot of power and can take up a large chunk of your utility bill. Keep your costs low by keeping your vents clean.
The more heat that is accumulated in and around your dryer, the more chance of something going wrong. Your dryer is already working hard, so you should try your best to let it do its job without additional stress and strain.
Clean ducts let the heat flow away from the dryer. Less heat in the dryer means fewer problems. Clean vents mean fewer repairs, and your dryer will last a lot longer, saving you money.
