Making sure that you follow a few simple safety rules has the potential to greatly improve the quality of life that your family experiences. Having working smoke detectors installed in your home and checking them on a regular basis is one such example. Another is getting your dryer vents cleaned often. Here's why this job needs to be at the top of your list.
1. Drying Times are Longer
A clogged dryer vent can compromise the free flow of air leaving the unit. This can, in turn, make it take longer for the dryer to do its job. The time it takes to dry your clothes can increase exponentially.
2. Rising Utility Costs
Dryers are already well known for being a huge drain on resources. Whether you have a gas dryer or yours uses electricity, you can rank your dryer as being one of the top five household appliances that use the most gas or electricity. When you add in the increased time spent drying clothes because the dryer vent is clogged, you can expect your utility bills to increase as well.
3. Quick, Easy and Affordable
It can be tempting to try to clean out your dryer vents on your own. Without the proper equipment and expertise, however, doing so will only have minimal results. Hiring a professional to come and clean your dryer vents makes the job quick and easy. Best of all, this task is one that is affordable and that can pay for itself over time in a reduction in your utility costs.
4. Reduces Hazards Associated With Fire
A dryer vent that is clogged with lint is a very real fire hazard. Hot air is not the only thing that is being expelled through your dryer vents. Minute particles of carbon-based materials are also flowing out. These particles are often highly combustible when the right amount of heat is applied to them.
