Do You Ever Think About Your Dryer Vent…
…the vent pipe that can start a fire, and is hiding in the wall or floor near your clothes dryer?
Here are two great reasons why you should. . .
REASON NUMBER ONE:
There are 2,900 dryer vent fires a year, causing five fatalities, 100 injuries, and an average of $9,600 in damages per fire.
Why? most people don’t know their dryer vents need to be cleaned. They clean out their lint filter and think that’s enough. However, lint can also accumulate in the dryer duct and clog or restrict hot exhaust air. This buildup of heat next to highly flammable lint accounts for most dryer vent fires.
In addition to lint buildup, improper installation of your dryer vent system can also pose a serious danger to you. A dryer vent cleaning professional will advise you of potential hazards, such as flammable vinyl duct or a duct run that is improperly routed. So ensure your family’s safety with professional inspection.
REASON NUMBER TWO:
Lint Buildup Takes More Energy (And Money) To Dry Your Clothes
If your dryer isn’t drying your clothes like it used to, you may not need a new dryer! A dryer vent clogged with lint reduces airflow so your dryer doesn’t dry as efficiently as it used to. An inefficient dryer also uses more energy, thereby costing you more money.
