Every year, an estimated 3,900 residential homes suffer from house fires caused by dryers in the United States. The US Fire Administration also estimates that fires caused by dryers cost an estimated $35 million every year in property damage. Cleaning your dryer vents of the lint that can build up there is the number one solution to avoiding house fires resulting from blocked dryer vents, which is why the USFA strongly recommends you hire a professional service at least once every year. This is because lint, as extremely flammable material, is prone to catching fire when left to accumulate in your vents.
But beyond the safety of your home and family, cleaning your dryer and dryer vents has a number of other benefits. The first is that a blocked vent can slow down the passage of hot air into your dryer, resulting in clothes that are not fully dried. When you clean your vents of lint and other debris buildups, you allow for air to get into your dryer efficiently. This also helps cut down on your power bill costs as your laundry cycles will become shorter and faster.
Additionally, when you hire us to come clean your dryer vents, we also clean the dryer itself. Cleaning around as well as inside the dryer helps keep the dryer working efficiently. It is also a way to evaluate the overall condition of your dryer’s parts to check if it needs any replacement or repair – you won’t have a need for any kind of additional dryer repair Ocean Beach.
