Dryer Vent Cleaning

Many homeowners don’t realize the importance of making sure their dryer vents are cleaned. If not regularly cleaned out, your dryer vents can lead to a house fire. Every year, approximately 15 people die, and 400 people are injured from a dryer vent-caused fire. Over time, lint and excess dust and fabric from clothes build up in your dryer vents, causing your dryer to exhaust less efficiently, and therefore more likely to start a fire. Not only that, but if your dryer doesn’t have the proper ventilation, it will release deadly carbon monoxide into your home. Dryer vents only need to be cleaned approximately once per year, significantly decreasing your risk of a house fire.
