Why Clean Your Dryer Vent?
Don't be a statistic...have your dryer vent cleaned regularly.
Most homes have washers and dryers. They are probably one of the most used and abused appliances that we have. Little thought is often given to their maintenance.
Both the washer and dryer should be regularly checked for any problems. The part of the drying system that is most overlooked is the vent. This is the piping that carries the exhaust air from the dryer to the outside of the building.
The air that is exhausted from the dryer is wet and carries the lint from the clothing. This combination of moisture and lint will eventually clog the venting. A clogged vent could cause several serious problems.
1. Because of the decreased air flow the dryer will be less efficient. It will take longer to dry a load of clothes, sometimes taking several cycles to finish the job.
2. Carbon monoxide could back up into a home. If a dryer vent becomes too clogged, it will not be able to discharge the air.
3. If a dryer vent is clogged, the excess lint could overheat and cause a fire. This happens more than people would think.
So, the cleaning of a dryer vent is vital to the efficient running of the appliance and the safety of your house.
