Dryer vent cleaning is recommended annually to promote maximum air-flow which is the number one requirement for your clothes dryer to function properly. When air-flow is restricted your clothes dryer becomes a fire hazard.
The reason that restricted air-flow is a danger is that in addition to water being evaporated from wet clothes, the dryer vent system also removes lint which is highly flammable particles of clothing made of cotton and polyester. When lint builds up in the dryer exhaust duct it hinders the dryer's ability to expel heat and moisture from the dryer. As the lint accumulates in the dryer vent system it becomes overheated and mechanical failures can trigger sparks which cause the lint to ignite and burst into flames. The combustible lint provides the fuel for the fire to spread through the system into your walls and throughout your home.
Dryer Vent Cleaning for Energy Savings
Your clothes dryer is one of the most expensive appliances to operate; a clogged dryer vent system causes your dryer to use more energy which can cost you an additional $25.00 per month. It also causes stress to the dryer motor as it labors to dry your laundry, resulting in additional repair bills.
Your clothes dryer requires proper air-flow to run safely and efficiently. This is the reason dryer vent cleaning is recommended annually. Dryer vent cleaning is the number one prevention of clothes dryer fires, unnecessary appliance bills and it reduces energy consumption.
