Many may fail to see the importance of regular dryer vent cleaning until their clothes dryer stops working or worse, a fire occurs. While no one wants to incur the cost of repairing a pricey dryer fix, the effects of a fire are far more devastating. Advanced Chimney Sweeps of Marietta Georgia provide dryer vent cleaning to help keep your dryer running safely.
Regular dryer vent cleaning can help your clothes dryer to work more efficiently. The lint that a dryer produces can clog the airflow feed, giving you poor dryer ventilation and causing your clothes to take up to 4 times longer to dry. While your dryer lint filter works to capture some of the lint produced, a significant amount can build up inside the dyer vent pipe. The risk of fire occurs when the clogged pipe can not allow the heat to escape properly. There are an estimated 15,500 fires per year associated with dryer vents according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
In recent years laundry rooms have been built towards the center of the home for convenience. This means that the dryer vent pipe is long and possibly more complex to access and clean.
To safely and effectively clean your dryer vent it is recommended to have a professional properly maintain it. Take the worry out of dryer vent maintenance and let your professional determine what type of service you will need and the frequency of that service.
