Keeping Your Home Safer

Dryers have been known to cause thousands of fires per year in the United States, and the majority of these are due to clogged up dryer vents. Homeowners also face health issues when they are forced to inhale toxins and poisonous gases that cannot escape into the outdoor air. These fumes need somewhere to go and, when their pathway is blocked, they simply turn around and enter the home.

Saving You Money

Having your vents cleaned now will also save you money in the long run. When these units are plugged, your dryer runs less efficiently. You may start noticing your laundry needs to be run through multiple times before it gets fully dry… This adds to your energy bill and puts a lot of extra wear and tear on your appliance, too!

Also, all too often we see homeowners buying dryer after dryer, trying to figure out why each one they purchase doesn’t seem to do the job right. Turns out all they needed was a good vent cleaning! If you are having problems, we strongly encourage you to call us in. We can check things over and assess your personal situation before you make any costly (and unnecessary) purchases.

Signs You Need A Cleaning

If you can’t remember the last time you had a cleaning, there are signs that indicate you’re overdue. The CSIA recommends at least one cleaning per year. If it’s been longer than that, schedule an appointment with us today!

Other signs to look for? Longer than normal drying times, excessive heat coming from the appliance, lint showing up in/around the dryer, warm/musty odors coming from the laundry room, and clothing coming out feeling extra hot. All of these are clear warnings that you need a professional’s assistance as soon as possible!
