Have you ever wanted to clean it?
Here are 3 reasons to have your dryer vent cleaned…
- Mold: The purpose of the dryer vent is to release moisture and hot air outside. The moisture can sometimes create wet spots inside the tube. Built-up lint can get caught in these wet spots and create mold.
- Less Maintenance: Like any other appliance or machine, your dryer will last longer and work better if it’s properly cared for. Cleaning the vent regularly will help ensure that your clothes are being dried in a timely manner and you aren’t wasting unnecessary energy. Extended drying times can even cause strain on your fabrics.
- Safety: Dryers run hot and lint is highly flammable, which makes for a dangerous combination. Clothes and dryers are responsible for more than 15,000 structure fires each year and 80% of those are due to clogged dryer vents. This is a preventable problem.
