How often should I have my dryer vent cleaned? Is dryer vent cleaning really needed?
Dryer vent cleanings are absolutely necessary to keep your property and occupants safe. There are 15,900 dryer fires annually. The leading cause for dryer fires are lint and dirt build up. If you don’t have your dryer vents cleaned on a regular basis lint will build up inside your dryer vent line. Without cleaning your dryer vent the lint accumulated prevents your dryer from exhausting properly. If your dryer is unable to exhaust properly because you haven’t cleaned it, your dryer will overheat. Overheated dryers lead to dryer fires. It is recommended to have your dryer vent cleaned a minimum of once every two years. If you do laundry more frequently your dryer vent cleanings need to be annually. Apart from preventing fires there are many more benefits to having your dryer vent cleaned regularly. Please visit our web site to learn more and to book a no obligation safety inspection with us.
