Dryer Vent Cleaning is just another reason we are fired up for your families safety!
In addition to our long list of chimney and fireplace services, one of our home fire prevention services is cleaning your dryer vents. This is sometimes an overlooked, but very important home safety service.
If you have ever seen how quickly a dryer can catch on fire and spread, then you will understand why we do dryer vent services. While preventing fires is the number one reason you should have your dryer vents cleaned, here are a few more.
Clogged exhaust vents cause your dryer to work harder than it should.
Clogged dryer vents prevent your dryer from working efficiently meaning you pay more in energy costs.
Clogged dryer vents can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Clogged dryer vents means your clothes have to be dried longer and that means laundry takes longer and we all know you don’t want to spend more time doing laundry
Here's how we can help you avoid home dryer vent fires.
When you dry your clothes, many people do not know the risks behind improper dryer use. If your vents are not regularly cleaned out, you leave yourself vulnerable to house fires. And cleaning the lint trap out frequently won’t keep this from happening. An overheated system could easily put your loved ones at risk.
Harmful gases and toxins can back up into your home if excess lint has clogged up your venting system. These fumes send family members to the hospital and trigger health issues for anyone exposed. If you’re worried about the state of your dryer, schedule a dryer vent clean so you can rest assured your dryer vents are as safe as possible.
Dryer Vent Fire Hazard Warning Signs
If you are not sure when your last dryer vent cleaning took place, then it would be in your best interest to have your dryer vent cleaned now. You could also keep an eye out for the following signs...
Your clothes take abnormally long to dry. If you are running multiple cycles or if a load takes more than 45 minutes to dry, then you likely have a problem.
You notice strange odors in your laundry room. An overheating system will give off an unpleasant smell. If you notice odd smells, give us a call so we can check things out.
Your appliance is very hot. Your dryer may be hot to the touch or your clothes may feel warmer than normal when they finish a cycle. You may also notice higher than normal temperatures in the laundry room itself.
You see a lot of lint accumulation. Lint will build up in the dryer, as well as outside of it, when your dryer vents have gone too long without a cleaning. You also may see more lint in your lint trap.
Condo Apartment Dryer Vent Cleaning Services
Our dryer vent cleaning services also extend to condominiums and apartment buildings. You would be amazed what we find at times in these buildings! Vent lines go on for more than 100 feet with twists and turns before being vented to the outside. There are even times when they go up from one floor to another and this can really be dangerous as flammable lint and heavier debris collect in the tube to create the perfect place to clog. Any spark that gets to this area is likely to produce a fire.
Affordable Dryer Vent Cleaning Services
The sad thing is these fires are easily preventable by having your clothes dryer exhaust cleaned and inspected at least once a year for the average family of four. If you have a large family and do a lot of laundry then you might want to increase this and have your dryer cleaned every six or nine months.
We can help you determine how often your dryer vents need to be cleaned and inspected after they come to your home. Our dryer vent clean service is very affordable and can be cleaned in conjunction with your regular chimney cleaning service if you wish.
