Your laundry room has a lot of moisture build-up or a musty smell.
Why Should You Clean Your Dryer Vent in Colorado Springs
Prevent Home Fires
Lint is extremely combustible, but lint screens do not all catch it. Over time, it can clog your vents, increasing the chance of catching fire quickly due to excess heat. Fire can spread quickly through the vent, and house fires can lead to catastrophic damage, including property damage, personal injuries, or even loss of life. Cleaning your dryer vents at least once a year can help prevent related fires.
Mold Prevention & Removal
When a dryer vent is clogged, it prevents air from flowing correctly through it. As a result, mold, bacteria, pet dander, pollen, dust, and other particulates can easily get trapped along with the lint inside the vent. These allergy-inducing contaminants can reduce your home’s indoor air quality, causing a host of breathing and skin problems, especially in sensitive household members. Having the dryer vent professionally and thoroughly cleaned regularly may help reduce asthma and allergy symptoms due to improved indoor air quality conditions.
Save Drying Time
If your clothes take longer and longer to dry, you are likely looking at a clogged dryer vent that allows hot, moist air to remain trapped in the drum. When the air cannot flow properly due to a build-up of lint or other obstructions, you are wasting valuable time by resetting the dryer to finish drying the load of laundry and reducing energy efficiency in the process. The extra drying time will take its toll on your clothing and dryer. In addition, as you run your dryer more than necessary, you are putting more stress and wear and tear on your dryer because internal components are getting hotter than designed. This can continue to cause issues as parts wear out, increasing the need for costly repairs and reducing the dryer’s overall lifespan.
Save On Energy Bills
Clogged vents reduce your dryer’s ability to operate at optimal efficiency. If you continuously turn your dryer back on to finish drying clothes due to clogged dryer vents, it costs you extra money. In addition to the related hazards, your energy bill may increase due to inefficient dryer usage. If your dryer vents are cleaned properly, your energy bill may benefit in the long run.
Dryer Vent Safety Facts
The U.S. Fire Administration cites that there are 2,900 home clothes dryer fires every year, resulting in an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. And the leading cause: failure to clean them.
Failure to clean (34 percent) was the leading factor in igniting clothes dryer fires in residential buildings.
Lint screens don’t catch all the lint – up to 75% of that highly combustible material goes into the dryer vent.
