Did you know that clogged dryer vents are a leading cause of home fires today? The heat buildup caused by improper ventilation can quickly cause a fire in the dryer which can quickly spread to the entire home and beyond. Lint entering the heat coil can also trigger combustion and flames inside the dryer.
The critical components of your home clothes dryer are heat and air flow. As your dryer generates heat, it is critical for the hot air to pass through the laundry tumbling in the drum, freely and unobstructed. Your dryer vent is the outlet that takes the hot air out of your home, allowing for a steady free airflow inside the dryer to evaporate the moisture in your laundered items, quickly and efficiently.
Over time, lint and other particles shed from your clothing during the drying process and make their way past the lint filter, forming a steady buildup on the walls of your dryer vent.
This buildup continuously reduces the air flow through the vent. The result is, even more lint not making its way outside and piling up, along with dust, dander and other particles inside the vent. Eventually, the buildup reaches the point where it restricts the air flow inside the dryer itself, with lint starting to build up on various parts of the machine’s interior.
Reduced airflow in your dryer results in a significant increase in machine runtime needed to dry your laundry. With severely clogged vents, a load may require 2 or 3 cycles to be completely dry. At today’s energy prices, increased runtime means significantly increased costs, in addition to wasted time and unnecessary wear on the dryer. Over time, this added expense can be greater than the cost of doing timely cleaning on your vents.
Damage Extended dryer runs means increased wear-down of the fabrics of your clothing, linens, towels and other laundered items.
Regular vent cleaning ensures the optimum efficiency of your machine. This greatly reduces unnecessary waste of vital energy resources and minimizes the negative environmental impact resulting from inefficient operation of your dryer.
