DRYER VENT HOSE SPRING CLEANING
It is recommended you perform dryer vent hose spring cleaning this year. When was the last time you performed this all-important task? If it’s been six months, a year or even longer, spring is an excellent reminder to schedule essential dryer vent hose cleaning. Simply add it to your spring cleaning to-do list and you’ll be doing yourself and your household a favor. After all, a clean dryer vent is a safer dryer vent; so be sure not to neglect them!
The Difference Clean Vents Can Make
So, why is this practice so highly encouraged? Well, a clean dryer vent system can make a big impact on the overall efficiency. If your dryer is not running efficiently, a vent cleaning can help to restore its efficiency. If you are wasting time and money waiting on your dryer to run multiple cycles for one load of laundry, then schedule a cleaning and guarantee a better dryer today.
Along with experiencing heightened efficiency, clean vents also play a huge role in keeping your home safe from potential fires. Dryers can obviously produce high temperatures, and when flammable lint is clogging up your vent, things could quickly overheat and go up in flames.
Think dryer-related fires aren’t that common?
Think again. Close to 3,000 clothes dryer fires occur every single year, and these have resulted in more than 5 deaths, around 100 injuries, and millions of dollars worth of damage. What’s the leading cause of this? Failure to clean the appliance.
Another reason to get your vent cleaning this spring is to reduce the risk of facing carbon monoxide exposure. You can smell or see most gases, but carbon monoxide is not one of them.
