Dryer vents collect lint and debris over time. Since this occurs in a place that is difficult to see with the naked eye, it is common to forget to have your dryer vent cleaned. Forgetting to do dryer vent cleaning can have detrimental and costly repercussions. Here are our top five reasons we recommend that you let us do dryer vent cleaning regularly.
- Dry Time – When your dryer vent is clogged, your clothes will take much longer to get dry. This will cause your dryer to work extra hard. Not having your dryer vent properly cleaned will reduce the lifespan of your dryer as well as your clothes.
- Fire – Lint is extremely flammable. Lint build-up is a common cause of house fires. To protect your home and your family, you need to regularly have your dryer vent cleaning done by a professional who can ensure that your vent is completely clear of all lint.
- Hot Clothes – Its to be expected that your clothes will come out of the dryer feeling warm. But your clothes should never come out of the dryer feeling hot. If they are, then your dryer is likely not venting properly. This will cause not only your clothes to become hot, but also your dryer. This can lead to costly breakdowns or even a fire.
If you notice your clothes getting too hot, burning smells, your clothes taking longer to dry or it has been longer than 6 months since the last time you had dryer vent cleaning, then give us a call at Steam Giant.
