We can work with you to establish a regular dryer vent cleaning service that prevents this!
Why Have Regular Dryer Vent Cleaning?
As your dryers run, the lint they produce will start to slowly clog up the vents. This creates a genuinely hazardous situation, because that lint is extremely flammable. Thousands of house and apartment fires start every year across North America, due to lint in their dryer vents combusting.
In addition, dirty dryer vents can become home to mold and mildew, giving them a warm damp home to breed in. Left unchecked, they can escape the vents, and start to infect the rest of your property.
Plus, clogged dryers are going to take longer to dry the clothes within them – and they will waste a lot of extra time and energy in the process. If your dryer vents are dirty, they may easily be costing you more money than it would cost to have them cleaned!
Signs Your Vents Need Immediate Cleaning Services
If you experience any of the following warning signs, it’s a signal that you need to hire a professional dryer vent cleaning company to prevent problems:
- Burning or musty odors. This is a huge red flag. If you smell burning, that means lint is starting to combust – and a fire could easily occur, if the conditions are right.
- Visible lint at the vent’s exit point. Occasionally take a moment to inspect the exit end of the dryer’s vent. If you can see lint building up there, it’s a sure sign that there’s buildup throughout the vent.
- Long dryer cycles. If it seems like your dryers are taking longer and longer to work, that’s almost always due to clogs in the vents.
- Especially hot dryers. A clothes dryer is always warm to the touch, but as the vents become increasingly clogged, the dryer will get hotter and hotter. This can also lead to motor burnout or other major equipment failures!
