DRYER VENT CLEANING

Four Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer vents need to be thoroughly and professionally cleaned on a regular basis to keep your dryer running effectively. But did you know that there are also safety and overall cost benefits associated with a clean dryer vent as well? Today we discuss four benefits of dryer vent cleaning, and how you can experience short-term and long-term advantages to your appliances.

Your clothes will dry faster.

By cleaning your dryer vent, you will notice a significant improvement with the amount of time it takes to dry your clothes. With moist, hot air caught insider your dryer drum, the extra time it takes to dry your clothes has a negative impact on your system, your clothes, and the lifespan on both.

Your dryer will last longer with less repairs.

Dryer vent cleaning increases the lifespan of your dryer. When there is lint or other obstructions stuck within your vent, it generates wear and tear on your appliance. This will cause parts to fail and prematurely shortens the duration of your dryer. If you want your dryer to last as long as possible, regularly cleaning your dryer vent helps that happen.

Lower your power bill.

The longer it takes to dry your clothes & linens, the higher your electricity bill will be. Clogged dryer vents significantly increase the amount of time it takes for your items to dry. If there is an obstruction in your dryer vent, the appliance is forced to work twice as hard to perform… Which in turn consumes more energy.

Reduce your risk of potential dryer fire.

Every year, fire departments across the US respond to home fires caused by dryers according to the National Fire Protection Association. These fires are caused by lint accumulation, meaning a lack of dryer vent cleaning can become a dangerous situation quickly. Cleaning your dryer vents annually will significantly reduce the chances of dryer fire.
