Laundry is a necessary and seemingly ongoing duty in most households across America. However, this seemingly innocent chore can come with some serious safety risks. At Crystal Clean Duct Service LLC, we specialize in air and dryer vent cleaning. Today, we are sharing the top four benefits of professional dryer vent cleaning.
1. Prevent Fires
The first benefit of professional dryer vent cleaning is the fact it helps prevent the biggest risk, house and building fires. Many of our customers say we are the first company to professionally clean their dryer vents. Although this is common, unfortunately, it also creates a risk that gets bigger by the day. Over time, flammable lint gets trapped in dryer vents. When dryer exhaust is pushed into a hot, clogged dryer vent, it creates a potentially combustible situation.
2. Improved Air Quality
The next benefit is the improved air quality inside your home or business. Over time, pet dander, dust mites, and other allergens can build up in your dryer. Clogged dryer vents could also push dangerous gases and carbon monoxide back into the home, creating a hazardous atmosphere for the people breathing in the air. By having your dryer vent professionally cleaned, you’re ensuring that your family is breathing cleaner air.
3. Increased Efficiency
There are fewer things more frustrating than realizing your damp work shirt is in the dryer, and it’s time to head out the door. It’s especially bothersome if your dryer is inefficient and it takes longer than usual to do its job. If your dryer requires more than one cycle to dry, it is a clear sign that a dryer vent cleaning is needed. By removing this clog, clothes will dry faster and, ultimately, save time and money!
4. Cost Savings
Finally, professional dryer vent cleaning helps save you money in the long run. Less dryer time leads to lower energy usage. Energy reduction leads to less expensive utility bills. Professional cleaning prevents more significant issues from occurring and also extends the life of your dryer.
