There are a number of benefits to having your dryers and dryer vents professionally cleaned by our skilled crew. The first is that clean dryer vents go a long way toward preventing house fires. Approximately 3,900 house fires are reported to be caused by dryers every year in the US. But while the source of the fire is the dryer, there is an unlikely culprit lurking in our dryer vents waiting to be ignited – lint. Lint is a highly flammable material that can accumulate in your dryer vents when they pass through filters in the dryer. By cleaning your dryer of lint, you are lowering your risk of dryer house fires by a large margin.
The second benefit of having your dryers professionally cleaned is the improvements it can make in your dryer’s performance. One of the signs of a dryer that has not been properly cleaned is that clothes need progressively longer times in the dryer to completely dry, often resulting in mildly damp clothes. Once the lint has been cleared from your vent, hot air can properly travel into the dryer, leading to shorter drying cycles. This can also help reduce your power bill by conserving more energy.
Another benefit is that, at Dryer Vent Professionals of San Diego, we also clean the dryer when we clean the dryer vent. By disassembling the dryer and cleaning every part, we make sure no debris or dust gets in the way of the dryer’s performance. At the same time, this service serves as a maintenance service for your dryers. When we are able to point out any possible repairs or replacements your dryer needs at an early date, it saves you the trouble of needing dryer repair down the line.
