Dyer Vent Cleaning Facts (2)
There are several reasons why it is important to get your dryer vents professional cleaned. Many of them have to do with safety, maintenance, performance and cost. For the most part, we all do basic maintenance when we clean out the lint traps on our dryers in between laundry loads, but is that enough?
Lint can build up in more places than you think, that small dryer filter can get most of the lint but nowhere close to all of it. Instead lint can get trapped everywhere including the lint trap, the interior dryer duct, the dryer vent and especially the dryer itself. Unfortunately, this can easily turn into safety and health hazard.
As most homes have accordion-like foil or plastic vinyl dryer vents that are prone to extreme link buildup, there ridged shape quickly collects lint and easily restrict air flow. Therefore, making them a major fire hazard and putting additional pressure on your machine and its energy cost.
People often confuse the two but “vent cleaning” typically refers to the dryer vent or bathroom fan vents. Dryer vent cleaning should be done once a year to ensure your home doesn’t fall victim to a dryer vent fire. Clogged dryer vents are one of the most common causes of house fires. But they are fires that are 100% preventable if people would just have their dryer vent cleaned on a yearly basis. The same for bathroom vents which so often get forgotten, the too need to be be cleaned at least every couple years.
