Has your dryer started running longer than it used, and you just cant figure out why? You probably need to have the dryer vent cleaned. The accumulation of lint is one of the most common reasons why dryer ducts get blocked, but it can also be caused by a variety of other reasons including animal nesting. Dryer duct cleaning improves the efficiency and safety of your home dyer installation. With continued use, lint and debris accumulate inside the vent, which results in increased drying time. Left unchecked, the dryer may overheat. The result? Increased energy consumption as the dryer takes longer to dry your laundry.

Reduce the risk of fire
Left uncleaned, dryer ducts become clogged and the heat generated from the dryer’s normal operation can accumulate till the lint ignites, potential starting a fires. According to the United States fire administration (FEMA), 15, 600 structure fires, 15 deaths and 400 injuries are connected to clothes dryers annually.
Lower humidity in the home
A clogged dryer duct means that the humidity has no way of exiting the building as it was designed to, resulting in high humidity especially around the dryer and the surrounding areas. This moist environment can also promote the growth of mildew and mold. Such conditions can lead to respiratory and other health problems to anyone living in the home. Dryer cleaning, however, ensures that humidity from the dryer escapes to the building’s exterior, leaving the interior dry and comfortable.
Remember, you cannot eliminate the risk of fire by simply purchasing a new dryer. The risk is inherent in the dryer vent itself, and if it gets clogged with paper particles and lint, it will dry out and become highly inflammable, making it a significant fire hazard.
