Did you know that thousands of structural fires occur every year due to clothes dryers? In connection with those fires, it is estimated that more than one hundred millions dollars in property loss is incurred each year. That is in addition to dozens of tragic deaths and hundreds of terrible injuries. These fires all occur due to dryer vent clogs that could be prevented with proper and regular cleaning.

What is dryer vent cleaning?

Every homeowner should be aware of the last time their dryer vent was cleaned out. When you hire a professional to take care of it, you can rest assured knowing they will clean out all lint and other debris in your dryer’s venting system that could become jammed and lead to potentially deadly fires.

Options for removing lint inside the dryer around the heater available. Depending on how often you use your dryer, inspection and vent cleaning may be recommended every year. When you call on Appliance Medic, we diagnose your appliance and provide you with a safe service plan.

Why do I need dryer vent cleaning?

As with most households, you likely use your dryer on a frequent basis. Even when you clean your lint trap regularly, that doesn’t mean all the lint from your laundry has been removed. In fact, only around 25% of the lint from your clothes is collected by the lint trap in your dryer. That means the rest is building up in the dryer vent system, restricting airflow and causing your dryer to work harder. As a result, this can cost you more in monthly energy bills, and as mentioned before, become a threat for fire.

 Whether you need to schedule dryer cleaning for safety purposes, monthly savings, or as a part of manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance, Appliance Medic is ready to help.
