Getting a dryer vent cleaning done regularly isn’t just a way to make your life more convenient. While this process offers countless benefits towards the efficiency of your appliance, that’s not the only reason we so strongly urge homeowners to invest in it. Dryer vent cleanings also greatly enhance the safety of your home and loved ones, and it’s a service that could save you a lot in time, money, and troubling medical issues down the line.
If it’s been a while since your dryer vents have been professionally cleaned or if your appliance is showing signs of trouble, give our team a call right away. We’re here for you!
Avoiding Home & Dryer Fires
The main concern with clogged dryer vents is the possibility of a dryer fire. If fumes cannot vent and there is nowhere for all that hot air to escape, the appliance will overheat fairly quickly. Combine that with flammable lint, and you’ve got yourself a mighty dangerous situation!
Now, dryer fires may not seem all that common, but most homeowners are surprised to find out they actually occur way more often than they think. Statistics show that, on average, over 15,000 dryer fires occur every year in the United States alone! While not all of these are due to clogged vents, the vast majority (around 80 percent) are.
Don’t become a victim of this easily avoidable event. A small fee now for dryer vent cleaning is much more ideal than shelling out thousands of dollars in home repairs, and it’s definitely not worth putting your family’s wellbeing at risk.
Preventing Carbon Monoxide Exposure
Another concerning issue is the potential for carbon monoxide exposure. Carbon monoxide is a gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, so noting its presence in your home is impossible without the help of a detector. Unfortunately, it can be deadly when not dealt with swiftly, which is why we strongly urge all homeowners to invest in carbon monoxide detectors and to have them installed on all levels of their home. This step, along with professional inspections and cleanings for your fireplace, dryer, and similar appliances, can make all the difference in keeping your loved ones safer.
