Certified Dryer Vent Cleaning

We don’t have to tell you that improperly maintained chimney systems can cause a fire hazard — the fact that we’re building a fire inside our homes is usually enough to encourage people to be cautious and diligent about fireplace and chimney maintenance.

But it’s also vastly important to keep up with the maintenance of your dryer vent. Dryer fires are far more common than most people might think. In a study released by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in 2012, it was found that nearly 17,000 home fires related to clothes dryers were reported in 2010. These fires resulted in many injuries, many deaths and millions of dollars in property damage.

The most prominent cause of those fires was failure to clean.

When dryer vents aren’t cleaned, lint and other debris can build up all along their walls, eventually causing the venting system to be constricted or blocked. Lint is highly flammable, and in a constricted or blocked vent, the dryer typically has to work at higher heats for longer cycles. High heat plus highly- flammable material is the perfect combination for a house fire.

Regular dryer vent cleaning will ensure that lint build-up is removed, so that your dryer can vent properly to the outside of your home. That means you’ll have a safer home, a safer family, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re being proactive about ensuring both.

A Clean Dryer Vent Can Save You Money, Too

That lint-filled dryer vent isn’t just a fire risk — it’s also a waste of money. When a dryer can’t vent properly and efficiently, it can’t dry properly and efficiently. Have you found that your clothes are still damp after running a load of laundry in your dryer? Sure, your dryer might be working improperly, but you might just have a dirty dryer vent. Most people respond by running their dryer again, wasting energy and contributing to the problem further. And plenty of people have ended up replacing perfectly functional machines because a clogged dryer vent made it seem like the dryer was failing.
