Cleaning your dyer vent is commonly overlooked until there is a problem. A clogged vent can drastically increase drying times and it can take twice as long to dry a single load of clothes. These clogged lines also pose as a big fire hazard if left to build up too long. According to the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Data Center, over 15,000 fires each year are attributed to clothing dryers, and over 80% of these are caused by clogged dryer vents. You most likely take the time to clean your dryer’s lint trap, but did you know lint and other debris can get past that screen and will eventually clog up the dryer vent itself? Clogged dryer vents can cause a host of problems including fire, carbon monoxide accumulation, extra wear to clothing, excessive energy use, and mold growth.
Think your drying is trying to tell you something? There are a number of warning signs that may indicate that there is a problem with your dryer vent. Excess lint left behind in the dryer, mold and mildewy smell, and the dryer overheating are just a few of the warnings signs that your dyer has a clogged dryer vent. These are also warning signs that should alert you to other possible problems that may follow like a dryer fire, carbon monoxide buildup, or the growth of mold. By keeping an eye out for these signs, you can know when it is time to call in a professional to clean out your dryer vent. Having regular dryer vent cleanings protects your residential or commercial property from dryer fires, and yourself from wasting valuable time and money.
