THE MANY BENEFITS OF REGULAR DRYER VENT CLEANING


If you don't regularly pay attention to your vents, it may be time to step back and reflect on the performance of your dryer.

  • Has it been taking longer and longer to dry your clothes?

  • Has the unit shut down prior to fully drying the clothes?

  • Have you been noticing higher-than-usual energy bills?

  • Is the top of the dryer hot to the touch?

  • Do you smell mold or mildew on your clothes?

All of these can be signs of a dryer in need of vent cleaning. Cleaning your dryer vent offers numerous advantages. It enhances efficiency, reduces fire hazards, extends dryer life, speeds up drying times, eliminates musty odors and mold issues, and saves energy. By maintaining a clean laundry system, you ensure optimal performance, safety, and cost-effectiveness in your laundry routine.



Why is it important to clean the dryer vents?


When you run your dryer many times, dirt, dust, and mold will build up in your dryer vent. These harmful substances may clog your dryer vents, causing a lot of problems. A clog in the dryer exhaust system can be the reason why your clothes are not dry or why they have a strange odor after repeated cycles. The dryer exhaust system becomes a hazard if clogged, so it’s important to have it cleaned regularly.


Before and After cleaning the dryer

Warning Signs That Your Dryer Vent Is Clogged


To begin, it’s important to point out that a dryer vent isn’t the same as a lint trap. The latter is something you would clean after every dry cycle. In comparison, you need to hire a company for the interior dryer and vents. With a dryer vent cleaning service, a qualified technician will remove any clogs.

Before going into the signs of having a clogged vent, note that this is one of the leading causes of house fires. As debris becomes hot, it can ignite. So, at least once a year, you should schedule a professional dryer duct cleaning.
  • Extended Dryer Times
