Dryer Vent Cleaning

Do your clothes dry slowly or take more than 1 cycle to get dry? You may have a clogged or partially clogged dryer vent duct. This is dangerous. Dryer vent cleaning is important for both safety and economic reasons. Few people realize that dryer vent duct cleaning significantly reduces the risk of a dryer vent fire and improves the efficiency of the dryer, thereby lowering utility costs. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are an estimated annual 15,500 fires, 10 deaths, 10 injuries, and cases of carbon monoxide poisoning associated with improper maintenance of dryer vents. The financial costs come to nearly $100,000,000 per year. In many cases, injuries and death can be prevented with proper dryer vent cleaning. 
Is not cleaning your dryer vent a risk you are willing to take?

Why Dryer Vent Fires Occur

In today's homes, dryer vents tend to be vented longer distances, creating more places for lint to gather. Although dryers are equipped with lint traps, a significant amount of lint is not caught by the trap, and instead, builds up inside the dryer. In addition to creating a fire hazard, if your dryer vent duct is too long or has too many bends, it will cause your dryer to take much longer than necessary to dry loads, using more energy and electricity. Finally, inadequate clearance space between the dryer and the wall can cause the dryer to work inefficiently. Many people create problems by putting their dryer against the wall crushing the venting material in the process. The cumulative effect of reduced air flow and the resulting lint buildup prevent the dryer from drying at a normal rate and risk causing a fire. By removing this lint annually, you remove the #1 fire hazard in your home.
