Why Should You Schedule a Dryer Vent Cleaning?
The importance of dryer vent cleaning services shouldn’t be underestimated. Negative consequences of an obstructed dryer vent can include:
- Fires: According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more than 15,000 home structure fires were caused by clothes dryers per year between 2010 and 2014. 27% of these were caused by dust, fiber or lint. Likewise, the US Fire Administration (USFA) also explains that failure to clean the dryer is the primary cause of clothes dryer fires.
- Dryer damage: An obstructed dryer vent can deal a blow to your dryer’s performance, thus requiring you to run it a few times to fully dry your clothes. This additional, unnecessary use can take its toll, leading to quicker deterioration.
- Hefty energy bills: Unsurprisingly, increased dryer use could send your utility bills through the roof. A clean dryer vent, on the other hand, would cut down on the cycles required per load of laundry, helping to slash your energy spending in the long run.
