Why Clean Your Dryer Vents?
The number one cause of house fires is not due to chimneys; they are caused by clogged dryer vents. These are the vents that lead from the back of your dryer out to the open and they can be extremely dangerous if not cleaned out annually for normal use. Of course, if you have a family of eight, you will need to have it done more often.
No One Likes To Feel “Backed Up”
Have you noticed your clothes taking longer to dry? This could be a symptom of your dryer being “backed up” with loads of flammable lint. Proper dryer vent maintenance is often overlooked by homeowners. No one wants to think about the chore of cleaning and putting up clothes! The sooner it’s done the better and then it’s off to the next thing!
However, lack of proper dryer vent maintenance can lead to increased energy consumption which leads to higher electricity bills for you and your family. So in addition to the fire danger that your dryer brings (over 15,000 dryer fires occur every year!), if lower energy bills and a safer home environment are the benefits of getting your dryer vent cleaned, why wouldn’t you?
