Dryer Vent Cleaning
WHY DO I NEED TO CLEAN MY DRYER VENTS?
If your dryer vents aren’t emptied and cleaned on a semi-regular basis, they can become completely clotted with unwanted (and potentially harmful) debris. A clogged dryer vent isn’t just an eyesore – this is actually one of the most common causes behind household fires. It’s been reported that thousands of fires occur every year due to improper dryer vent cleaning – yikes! In order to ensure that you and your loved ones don’t become part of this influx in dryer vent fires, it’s integral that property owners make vent cleaning and maintenance a top priority.

DRYER VENT CLOGGING: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING
In addition to scheduling regular professional dryer vent cleanings, there are some preventative measures that you, the homeowner, can take to ensure that your dryer vents stay clean. In between using AdvantaClean’s services, here are some of the most effective things you can do to prevent dryer vent clogging and potential fire hazards:
- Instead of dryer sheets, use fabric softener! Dryer sheets are notorious for contributing to serious lint and dust buildup, since they tend to shred and tear into pieces during a laundry cycle. Instead of these potentially harmful sheets, why not use fabric softener? Softener gets the job done just as well as dryer sheets – without the risk of starting a fire.
- Do not overload your washing machine. It can be tempting to throw in as many clothes as possible into one wash load, but try not to do this. An improperly loaded washing machine won’t retain the right amount of moisture, meaning that your dryer will really be put to the test when it comes to the dry cycle. This means more rapid buildup of debris.
- Check the outside opening of your dryer vent. By thoroughly and consistently checking your dryer vents, you’ll know when it’s time to schedule another cleaning with AdvantaClean!
