Dryer Vent Cleaning
WHY IS CLEANING MY DRYER VENTS IMPORTANT?
If your dryer vents aren’t emptied and cleaned on a semi-regular basis, they can become clogged with unwanted and dangerous debris. A clogged dryer vent doesn’t just look bad; it puts you at a much higher risk for household fires. Thousands of fires every year are reported due to improper dryer vent cleaning! In order to ensure that you and your loved ones are safe from dryer vent fires, property owners must make regular vent cleaning and maintenance a top priority.

DRYER VENT CLOGGING: HOW CAN I PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING?
In addition to regularly scheduling professional dryer vent cleanings, there are other preventative measures to take to keep your dryer vents clean and safe. In between using AdvantaClean’s services, we have a few tips to prevent dryer vent clogging and fire hazards:
- Use fabric softener instead of dryer sheets! Dryer sheets are notorious for contributing to lint and dust buildup since they tend to shred and fall to pieces during each laundry cycle. Instead of these potentially harmful sheets, you can save yourself the risk by using liquid fabric softener! Softener gets the job done just as well as dryer sheets while limiting the risk of causing a fire.
- Do not overload your washing machine. We’ve all had that internal debate about whether our washing machine can handle just a few more things. It is always tempting to save the time and fit everything into that one load, but this causes even more harm. If your washing machine is too full, it won’t be able to retain the right amount of moisture. This leaves your dryer with a difficult job when it comes time for the dry cycle, causing debris to build up more rapidly.
- Check the outside opening of your dryer vent. If you thoroughly and consistently check your dryer vents, you’ll always know when it’s time to schedule another cleaning with AdvantaClean!
