When is the last time you had a dryer vent cleaning in your Vancouver home?
It’s easy to overlook your dryer vents since they’re usually tucked away and don’t draw attention to themselves. However, they will become dirty and clogged with debris over time. It’s absolutely vital that they be cleaned periodically! Otherwise, it can be a genuine danger to your home or rental property, on top of causing other problems.
Why Vancouver Dryer Vent Cleaning Is So Important
1 – Preventing a fire hazard
By far the most important reason to clean your dryer vents is that they become clogged with lint – and lint is extremely flammable. As the vent becomes clogged, the heat builds up, and eventually, the lint may ignite. This isn’t a hypothetical, either – dryer lint is actually one of the most common causes of home fires in North America!
People have genuinely lost their homes because of poorly cleaned dryer vents causing catastrophic fires.
2 – Improving energy efficiency
As a dryer vent becomes clogged, that forces the dryer to work harder pushing air out of the system. In turn, this causes it to use more energy. Keeping your vents clear will help reduce your power bills.
3 – Preventing unnecessary dryer damage
A machine that’s called on to work harder than expected over long periods is going to tend to break down more quickly. That’s certainly the case with dryers that have clogged vents. So besides lowering your power bills, having your dryer vents cleaned can also extend the lifespan of your dryer and prevent costly repairs or replacements.
4 – Speed up your clothes drying
Another issue caused by clogged vents is that they reduce the ability of your dryer to actually do its job. Hot moist air generated by the drying process has to be vented, or else the clothes won’t dry. So the more clogged the vents are, the longer it’s going to take to finish your laundry.
Clothes within such a dryer are also going to get even hotter than usual, which could potentially cause problems for sensitive fabrics – especially synthetic fabrics.
