Clogged dryer vents present a serious fire hazard.
Did you know that dryer fires are very common in the United States?
They occur because lint gets trapped in the vent when it is not cleaned out on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, lint is highly flammable. It catches on fire when the dryer vent clogs and sets off a chain reaction that leads to limited airflow. This makes the dryer have to work harder, and it gets hotter than usual. As a result, it eventually overheats and can catch on fire.
Annual Dryer Vent Cleaning is a necessity for many good reasons.
It is something that all homeowners should invest in annually to save money, time and prevent fire hazards.
If you noticed lately that it takes two or three cycles to dry one load of clothes, this is a sign that your dryer needs vent cleaning.
