Dryer vent cleaning is an essential task that needs to be completed yearly to keep your home safe and your dryer running smoothly. Although there are kits available that advertise dryer vent cleaning as a quick task you can do on your own, we strongly suggest always using a professional. Not only will our experts ensure that your home is safe from fire by removing all lint, but they can also quickly complete the job with their professional tools and experience. Here are four reasons to schedule dryer vent cleaning today.
- Fire Safety. We mention fire safety first because it can have the most disastrous consequences. If your dryer vent accumulates too much lint, your home is at risk of a fire. Lint is highly flammable, and the risk of a fire increases as lint gathers in your dryer vent. Proper cleaning will remove this risk to your home.
- Shorten Drying Times. If lint is blocking your dryer vent, moisture is unable to escape quickly. This lengthens the time needed to dry your clothes. Cleaning out your dryer vent can shorten the time you need to finish your laundry.
- Reduce Strain on Your Dryer. By cleaning out the lint in your dryer vent, you reduce the strain on your dryer. Not only will you need fewer repairs, but your dryer will also have a longer lifespan.
- Lower Energy Bills. If you regularly schedule dryer vent cleaning, your dryer will run more efficiently. The amount of energy your dryer requires to run will be reduced along with your monthly energy bill.
