Dryer Vent Cleaning
Keep your family safe and your energy costs low with clean dryer vents
There are nearly 3,000 dryer fires in the United States each year. These fires cause injuries, deaths, and millions in property damage. Its important for property owners to understand what causes these fires, and how they can prevent them while saving themselves money in the long run.
Clogged vents cause dryers to overheat and catch fire.
Every time you run your Naperville dryer, lint makes it past your lint trap and into your dryer exhaust vent. Over time, lint buildup can restrict airflow through the exhaust vent and in some cases block the vent completely. This issue is common in every home, but especially prevalent in newer homes with laundry rooms located in the interior of the home. These homes often have dryer vents as long as 30 feet that are especially prone to restriction and blockage.
Clogged vents increase energy costs drastically!
Have you ever had to re-start your dryer because the laundry wasnt dry after a single cycle? Dont make the mistake of blaming your dryer. In most cases, the exhaust vent is restricted due to lint buildup, and this restriction is hampering the dryers ability to do its job. Even the most energy-efficient dryers cost hundreds of dollars each year to operate, and a restricted vent can double that cost (or worse).
Clean exhaust vents extend the life of your dryer by years!
Today's dryers cost a lot more than they used to, and repairs on even older models typically run hundreds of dollars. When your dryer has to force air through a restricted exhaust vent, it adds stress to all of the internal components. This is particularly troublesome for those with newer dryers because failure to properly maintain dryer exhaust vents is cause for a voided warranty with every dryer manufacturer. By regularly cleaning your dryer exhaust vent, you extend the life of your dryer, keep your warranty in-place, and reduce repair and replacement costs over time.
You may need your Naperville Dryer Vent cleaned if you are experiencing any of the following:
- Clothes take more than one cycle to dry
- Outside of dryer feels warm to the touch after a cycle
- Electricity bill increases for no apparent reason
- Clothes are unusually hot after a dryer cycle
- Clothes have a musty smell after going through the dryer
Regularly cleaned dryer vents protect dryers, homes, and families and save thousands over the typical life of a dryer!
