Dryer Vent Cleaning

The National Fire Protection Association recommends an annual dryer vent cleaning. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, an estimated 16,000 home fires are sparked annually due to clogged clothes dryer vents. Lint and other debris build up in your dryer vent, reducing airflow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, and creating a fire hazard. A clogged dryer vent attached to a gas dryer may cause carbon monoxide to build up in the home, which can be deadly.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Benefits

In the U.S., thousands of fires are caused by dirty dryer vents every year. Clean vents result in dryers with longer lifespan, increased dryer efficiency, better drying time, and require less energy (and money). A good indication that your dryer vent needs cleaning is if clothes take noticeably longer to dry.
