3 REASONS DRYER VENT CLEANING IS IMPORTANT

3 REASONS DRYER VENT CLEANING IS IMPORTANT

DRYER FIRE

First, lint buildup can be a fire hazard. Dryer vents should be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent this from happening.

Dryer fires are a serious hazard. According to the US Fire Administration 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. They can cause extensive damage to your home and even lead to injuries or fatalities. A dryer fire can start if there is lint buildup in the dryer vent. Lint is highly combustible and can easily ignite if it builds up.

MORE home dryer fires happen in the Fall and Winter months with January being the most popular.

ELECTRICAL COSTS

Second, lint buildup can increase your electrical costs. A clogged dryer vent will force the dryer to work harder, which uses more energy. Electricity costs can increase if your dryer vent is plugged. This is because the dryer has to work harder to dry clothes when the vent is blocked. This uses more energy and can lead to higher utility bills.

EFFICIENT OPERATION LONGER LIFE TO YOUR DRYER

Finally, a clean dryer vent will run more efficiently. A clogged vent can cause the dryer to overheat which can damage the dryer and shorten its lifespan.

You may not know it, but your dryer is one of the biggest energy hogs in your home.
