Did you know that dryers are associated with more than 15,000 home-based fires every year in the US? Some of the most common causes include an ignored lint trap, electrical problems, and also a clogged dryer vent.

Cleaning your dryer vent should be a priority. It’s recommended that you get a professional cleaning done once a year. You are not only maintaining the efficiency of your dryer but also significantly reducing the risk of a fire in your home.

Importance of Dryer Vent Cleaning

A buildup of lint can cause your dryer to work poorly. A need to run the dryer longer is an indicator of lint accumulation. It can escape the lint trap and get into the machine or obstruct the exhaust duct and vents.

The stuck lint can limit airflow and increase the risk of a sudden fire as the dryer fails to properly exhaust heat. A snowball effect occurs until the problem is treated. The more lint gets trapped the worse the machine will work and the more it will heat up. Eventually, the lint will catch fire and it can quickly spread.

Dryer fires aren’t like accidental kitchen fires. When it happens, you won’t be able to put out the flames on your own. The damage will affect the structure of your home and the repair costs can easily run in the tens of thousands of dollars range. All it takes is a little maintenance effort to ensure this doesn’t happen to you.

Why Professional Cleaning is Needed

Do you make sure to empty the lint trap every time you use your dryer? If so, that’s great but it does not mean your vents are in the clear. A staggering 75% of the lint from your clothes won’t make it to the lint trap. Therefore, your cleaning thoroughness will not prevent a buildup from occurring in the dryer’s exhaust duct and venting system.

A professional cleaning will empty the venting system of all trapped debris. You cannot access and clean these vents on your own without the right equipment. An expert will clean out pipes that run through your walls and ceiling. While some vent cleaning kits exist, the results are not as reliable as what a dryer vent cleaning company can offer.
