VIDEO: Severely Clogged Dryer Vent - Extreme Lint Build-Up (FIRE HAZARD).
Having a clogged dryer vent might not seem like that big of a deal, but when you realize how much time, energy, and money you waste as a result of excess lint in your vents, having your dryer vents cleaned becomes the most economical option. Here are some of the benefits of our professional residential dryer vent cleaning service:
|Clothes dry faster and have less lint|
|Your dryer does not have to work as hard, requiring fewer repairs over its life|
|Reduced power bills|
|Reduced drying times|
|Reduced number of drying cycles to get your clothes dry|
|Less humidity in your home|
|Fewer fumes in your home|
|Reduced fire danger!|
These are only a few of the many benefits that come with having a clean dryer vent. When lint builds up in your vent, it makes it difficult for your dryer to push the wet air out of its system. This means that it will take a much longer time to dry your clothes, which increases your power bill and puts serious strain on your dryer. Here are some signs you should look for to know if you need professional dryer vent cleaning:
- Your dryer takes a very long time to get clothes dry
- You are finding lint in the dryer or on your clothes
- The lint trap is clean, but there is lint in the drum
- The dryer feel very hot to the touch while it is running
- Clothes are very hot after drying
- Dryer repeatedly shuts down during drying
Did you know that more than a third of all dryer fires were caused by improperly or irregularly cleaned dryer vents? In more than a fourth of all residential fires, lint and debris like it were one of the first things to ignite. The risk of lint-related fire is real, but it can be significantly reduced by having your dryer vents professionally cleaned by Better Air.
Dryer fires are most common in the fall and winter, with them being the most numerous in January. They can, however, occur during any month of the year. This is why it is important to have your dryer vents not just inspected, but cleaned. Doing this will keep your home safe and will ensure that your dryer works at peak efficiency. All homeowners should be concerned about the state of their dryer vents, but if they have a flexible transitional duct to their vent dryer, they should be particularly concerned. This type of duct is more likely to bend or twist, creating areas where it is very easy for lint to stick and collect.
These particles will reduce the dryer’s ability to function properly, making it almost impossible to disperse the hot water vapor that the heat of the dryer creates. As a result, clothes will take longer to dry, the room where the dryer is located will become very humid, and there is an increased risk of overheating and dryer fire.
