Why You Should Have Your Dryer Vent Professionally Cleaned

When you own a home, one of your biggest responsibilities is making sure there are no hazards. Especially ones that could endanger your family and damage your property! To prevent a dangerous situation such as an accidental fire, you need to keep up with certain routine maintenance tasks. One task that many homeowners tend to neglect? Having their dryer vent systems professionally cleaned! Consequently, neglecting this task can be costly.

Dirty dryer vents are related to thousands of accidental house fires every year. In addition, these fires result in deaths, injuries, and millions of dollars in property losses. Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists takes fire safety very seriously. This is why we provide professional dryer vent cleaning services to the residents of Upstate South Carolina. We would like to tell you more about why it is so important to have your dryer vents cleaned. Also, what to expect from our services.

What are the benefits of a professional dryer vent cleaning?

Preventing accidental fires is a huge benefit of having your dryer vent professionally cleaned. Your clothes dryer produces a lot of lint with each load of clothes. Some of this lint can get trapped inside the vent and accumulate, which can clog the vent. This is a dangerous fire hazard because lint is highly flammable. When your dryer is clogged, it overheats quickly. Thus, the high temperatures can easily ignite an accumulation of lint.

Your dryer overheating can lead to other problems as well. Certain parts will wear out and break down much faster. One of these parts, the heating element, can be quite costly to repair. Plus, you may even need to replace your dryer. A professional dryer vent cleaning will prolong the life of your appliance. Another benefit is that you will notice a decrease in your utility bills after you have had your dryer vent cleaned. When the vent is dirty and clogged, it can take more than one drying cycle to completely dry one load of clothes. This will make your utility bills be more expensive than normal.
