Save Money with a Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning

Did you know that the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)  recommends that you have your clothes dryer venting system professionally cleaned at least once a year? Many of our customers at Chim Cheree, are surprised to learn this, and we are often asked the reasons behind this recommendation. Most importantly, a professional dryer vent cleaning can save lives by preventing a devastating residential fire. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), clothes dryers were responsible for approximately 17,000 house fires in 2010, and these fires resulted in deaths, injuries, and property damage. This maintenance service can also save you money, and we would like to tell you a bit more about how a professional dryer vent cleaning can benefit your wallet.

A professional dryer vent cleaning will make your clothes dryer operate more efficiently.

Save Money With a Professional Dryer Vent - Greenville SC - Chim ChereeWhen the venting system of your clothes dryer is clogged with lint and debris, your dryer will not function very well. A dryer with dirty vents will take longer to fully dry a load of clothes. A sure sign that your dryer vents need to be cleaned is when you must run your clothes dryer for two cycles to completely dry one load of wet clothes. Not only is this double drying cycle process a waste of time, but it will make your utility bill higher each month. Cleaning the venting system will truly give your clothes dryer so much more efficiency, and this saves both time and money. If you regularly must run your dryer for two complete cycles to dry a load of clothes, you will see a monthly savings of $18 to $24 after a professional dryer vent cleaning from our services.

A professional dryer vent cleaning will prolong the life of your clothes dryer.

As we mentioned above, a dirty dryer venting system forces you to run your clothes dryer twice to dry one load of clothes. This excessive use is hard on this appliance. Overuse can cause the heating element to wear out prematurely and cause you to spend money on expensive appliance repairs. Some people even will replace their clothes dryers without realizing all they needed to do to their original dryers was to have their venting systems professionally cleaned. Having your vents cleaned out by our CSIA-certified dryer vent technicians can extend the life of your clothes dryer and prevent the need for repair work. Our technicians will also inspect your venting system as they clean it to be sure everything is connected correctly to give your clothes dryer the highest efficiency it possibly can.
