The Importance of Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vent cleaning helps prevent hazardous conditions including exhaust fires or carbon monoxide intrusion. According to the U.S. Fire administration, there are nearly 13,000 home fires each year that are caused by clothes dryer fires, resulting in $88 million dollars of damages.
The exhaust stream carries lint through the ventilation duct along with water vapor evaporated from the wet clothes. As this lint accumulates in the exhaust duct, the dryer's ability to eliminate the heated water vapor is reduced. Thus, heat energy within the machine begins gets trapped and potentially overheats the machine. This may cause mechanical failures or can even trigger a fire as sparks light the lint on fire.
Indoor Air Quality
Dryer vent cleaning also improves indoor air quality. A dirty dryer vent may not allow the clothes dryer to exhaust properly, potentially causing poisonous carbon monoxide to fill your home.
A clogged dryer vent can cause your dryer to run longer and hotter since it reduces the air flow. This excess heat causes an increase in your home's energy bill and increases the wear on your dryer, thus reducing its lifetime.
