Not taking care of your dryer causes several issues, starting with longer drying times, which can lead to shrunken clothes and heat-damaged fabrics. It can also drive up your utility bills, since the dryer is one of the more energy-intensive appliances in the home. GreenWay's Dryer Vent Cleaning will ensure your Dryer is functioning safely and efficiently.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires are sparked every year by clothes dryers. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer vent, reducing air flow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, creating a fire hazard.
Dryer vent cleaning is necessary to prevent dryer fires. Dryer fires occur when lint collects in your dryer vent system over time, the dryer overheats, sparks, and causes a fire. Thousands of house fires are sparked by clothes dryers every year. Have your dryer vents cleaned at least once a year to prevent a dryer fire.
Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:
Do you have a gas dryer? Unmaintained gas dryers can pose a serious carbon monoxide poisoning threat. Carbon Monoxide is a dangerous colorless, odorless, tasteless toxic gas, and it is very difficult to detect. That’s why it is so important to use carbon monoxide detectors in your home. When dryer vents are clogged with lint or animal nests, exhaust fumes cannot properly vent to the outdoors. Instead, harmful gases can enter your homes and pose a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Dryer vent cleaning is an affordable and easy way to ensure that your gas dryer is maintained.
Improve Dryer Efficiency:
Dryers are energy-intensive appliances. Lint and blockage in your dryer vent lines cause your dryer to work inefficiently, and inefficient dryers need to run longer to get your clothes dry. Longer drying times mean extra dollars on your energy bill. Appliance manufacturers recommend cleaning your dryer vents annually to save energy and maximize the life of your dryer.
Maintain Proper Dryer Function:
Are you finding that it takes longer and longer for your clothes to dry? Don’t assume that your dryer is broken! Lint and other blockage in your dryer vent lines can cause your dryer to work improperly or not at all! Save money on dryer repair or purchasing a new dryer. Try having your dryer vents cleaned and inspected first.
Professional dryer vent cleaning can save you money. Increased dryer efficiency can save money on your energy bill. Additionally, proper maintenance will extend the life of your dryer and prevent the need for costly appliance repairs in the future.
