Dryer Vent Cleaning Services
Experts recommend that homeowners should have their dryer vent and ducting professionally cleaned every 1-3 years.
Helps to Prevent Home Fires
The main reason homeowners should have their dryer vents cleaned is for fire safety. Over time, lint and clothing particles will accumulate in the dryer’s ducting. As airflow is reduced, your dryer has to work harder and hotter than it should, and the lint within the ducting or the dryer itself can catch fire.
Lower Utility Costs
If you have a gas dryer, lint will start building up on the burner area, which will reduce its efficiency. If you have an electric dryer, the heat from the unit will not be able to circulate appropriately if there’s lint buildup in the venting system. This means that you’ll have to run cycles longer than necessary, which can increase your utility costs.
