Do you ever think about your dryer vent?
If not, then here are two reasons why you should:
1. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commision, there are an average of more than 15,500 dryer vent fires each year. Why does this occur? Most people don’t realize that their dryer vent duct requires cleaning. It’s the duct where the lint can build up and clog the duct. Lint is highly flammable, thus the need for dryer vent cleaning. Improper installation of the dryer vent duct can also pose a serious risk, and a professional inspection can detect potential hazards and make necessary repairs if required.
2. Lint buildup can decrease the efficiency of your clothes dryer. If your dryer doesn’t dry your clothes very well, it could mean that you have a clogged dryer vent. Since a clogged dryer vent prevents proper air flow, your dryer won’t operate very efficiently which increases your energy costs.
The solution: have your dryer vent cleaned and inspected yearly by Middle Georgia Chimney Sweeps.
