Dryer vent cleaning helps to improve the safety and functionality of this appliance.
Dealing with a fire at your home is one of the most stressful experiences you can ever have. Fire is incredibly destructive, often destroying anything that may be in its path. Taking precautions at home to reduce the risk of a fire is important, and one of those precautions is having your dryer vent cleaned out regularly.
The dryer vent is an opening in the wall of your home that helps to remove the excess heat generated during the normal operation of this appliance. Its purpose is to prevent the dryer from overheating and causing a fire. But since the dryer contains clothing and other soft textiles, lint can accumulate in the vent, which is a fire hazard. A buildup of lint coupled with excess heat can spell trouble for your home’s safety.
Cleaning out your dryer’s lint trap might be second nature, and it’s certainly an important task to do every time you run the appliance. But what you may not be able to see is the lint that has collected in the vent behind or beneath the dryer, and that needs to be removed by a professional.
