One of the most important services a customer can have done in their home is having their dryer vent cleaned annually. Every year 15,500 house fires are caused by clogged dryer vent lines. Over time as a person uses his or her dryer, lint travels through the line and can get bunched together. As it bunches, hot air gets trapped in the line and heat builds up. Eventually a fire is started.
When a dryer vent is clogged, the dryer begins to be come inefficient. It may take up to 4 cycles for clothes to dry. This is due to the fact that moisture has no where to go, because of the clogged line. Not only is this time consuming, but also frustrating. Most of all, since the dryer is one of the most expensive appliances to run, a clogged dryer line costs you more money than it should.
Its important to make sure you use a company with expertise. it may seem like the dryer line is easy to clean, but depending on the application it can actually be very complicated. Make sure you hire an official air duct cleaning company, not a company offering it as a secondary money maker. This will not only save you money in the long run, but keep your family, home or business safe.
