Would you go to any length to avoid a house fire? Would you like a little additional cash in your pocket every month? If you responded yes to both of these questions, then dryer vent cleaning is the solution for you.
Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning
Avoiding moisture buildup.
During the drying stage, a clean dryer vent is essential for ensuring that all water is removed from the clothes and discharged outdoors. Moisture can condense into pools of water in your dryer vent if there is a lot of accumulation, which can lead to mold and mildew growth.
Avoiding a fire hazard.
Lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct, which can cause a fire. Lint obstructs the airflow, resulting in excessive heat buildup. Cleaning the dryer vent and exhaust duct on a regular basis is a good preventative precaution.
Extend the life of your dryer.
A clogged dryer vent pipe will make your dryer work harder, resulting in a reduced life span. A well-maintained dryer vent will help you get the most out of your dryer while also extending its life.
How Often Should You Clean Your Dryer Vent?
You should have your dryer vents cleaned every 1-2 years. This varies based on how frequently you use your dryer, the type of dryer you have, its age, and other factors.
Although dryer vent cleaning is frequently forgotten, it is an important step in ensuring your home’s safety. To ensure that the lint buildup in the vent is fully cleaned, We recommend having a professional expert come to your home.
