Dryer & Dryer Vent Cleaning
It is a common misconception that it is good enough to empty the lint trap before using a dryer and this act alone will allow the machine to function properly. Unfortunately, lint traps do not collect all of the lint your clothing and dryer creates. A surprising amount of lint manages to escape the dryer filter and passes into your dryer vent and surrounding areas. As lint builds up in your dryer it can become clogged, which can increase the time it takes for your clothes to dry. Over time, your dryer will begin to work harder and take longer to dry your clothes, resulting in higher energy bills and a greater risk that your dryer will overheat. When a dryer consistently overheats, it can cause a fire to start in the machine. Dryer lint is highly flammable and has the potential to ignite quickly. Fires caused by a build up of lint in a dryer and/or a clogged dryer vent affects hundreds of homeowners each year.
If your dryer is not being properly vented to the outside as a result of lint and debris buildup, there is a risk of harmful emissions such as carbon monoxide being produced (for gas dryers) in your home or business, as well as excessive moisture resulting in condensation and mold growth for gas and electric dryers. Having your dryer and dryer vent cleaned regularly can help you avoid a serious health and safety issue.
