Why It’s Important to Clean the Dryer Vents in Your Home


It’s amazing how easy it is to take things for granted that we never think about  like our dryer vents. But there are many reasons we need to think about having our dryer vents cleaned

  • Dryer vent cleanings improve efficiency. Your dryer functions much better when the vents are cleaned out and free of debris. Your clothes will try faster, and the appliance will face less wear and tear, too.
  • Dryer vent cleanings save you money. Because efficiency will be improved, you won’t be forced to run cycle after cycle to get your clothes dry (which ups your energy bills), and your system will likely last longer, too, which means no spending hundreds on a new system anytime soon.
  • Dryer vent cleanings keep you safer. Dirty dryer vents are the leading cause of dryer-related fires in the home. Basically, clogs lead to overheating, which makes all the flammable lint (aka – the stuff clogging up the vent) more likely to ignite. Clogs also up the risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.
