The big issues with dirty dryer vents are your increased risk of experiencing a fire or gas leak. Fires can easily occur when the appliance overheats, which is much more likely to happen when things are clogged up. Lint is very flammable, so flames spread quickly, putting your entire household at risk. This has caused thousands of homeowners across the United States to shell out hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars in home repairs and reconstruction work.
Avoiding damage is a major reason to invest in a dryer vent cleaning, but the biggest benefit you’ll get is added safety for your family. Dryer vent fires can occur at any time, and you never know who may be in the house when flames start to spread. Why take any chances, when a simple solution is just a phone call away? Count on our team to get the job done right.
Along with the risk of fire hazards, you risk harmful gases entering your home. The biggest concern in this department is carbon monoxide exposure, which can be fatal if not addressed swiftly. Unfortunately, carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, so detecting it is impossible without a little help. We encourage all of our customers to put carbon monoxide detectors throughout their home, so any signs of trouble are evident right away.
Signs of exposure include nausea, vomiting, headaches, confusion, weakness, dizziness, and similar symptoms. If you notice any of these in you or loved ones, or if your carbon monoxide detectors start to go off, leave the home immediately and call the proper authorities for help.
Along with making your home much safer, clean dryer vents ensure your appliance runs more efficiently, too. No one wants to wait around all afternoon for one load of laundry to dry, and all that extra energy use can add up quickly on your monthly bills. Many assume the fault lies with the dryer itself, but it’s typically the vents that need addressing! We can get things running more smoothly, so you don’t have to deal with the stress any longer.
