Did you know that dryer vent fires are one of the most common causes of house fires in the United States? Lint traps only capture a fraction of the total lint created by your dryer, leaving the rest to accumulate in your dryer vent. This is why periodic dryer vent cleaning and maintenance is essential. And, in addition to safety, there are many other benefits associated with having your dryer vents cleaned on a regular basis. Dryer vent cleaning is a chore that can often go overlooked, however, dryer vent cleaning is important for homes, laundromats and multi housing buildings of all sizes. Fortunately, Metro Cleaning Service provides excellent dryer vent cleaning in St Paul and the surrounding areas. Allow us to help with this important and messy task! Here are a few of the reasons you should have dryer vent cleaning performed on a regular basis:
Dryer vents can get easily clogged with lint. After awhile, the dryer lint can become a big fire hazard. One spark from a dryer and the lint can ignite. And, these fires can spread quite easily, so having the lint removed on a regular basis with a dryer vent cleaning can help keep this from happening. Dryer vent cleaning is another way to take steps to help ensure a safer home or business.
Without proper dryer vent cleaning, clothes will take longer to dry completely. When your dryer vent is filled with lint, it is unable to circulate properly as the air is unable to escape as efficiently, keeping your clothes from drying in a timely manner. It can even make your dryer feel hot to the touch and your laundry may come out of the dryer hot, humid and musty. Having a dryer vent cleaning can eliminate the musty odor that can sometimes cling to clothes after they have been in the dryer. Overall, a professional dryer vent cleaning can result in clothes that smell fresher and dry faster.
Help extend the life of the dryer in your home or the dryers in your laundromat or multi housing property. When lint builds up in the dryer vents, it causes the dryer to work even harder to dry your clothes, sometimes even causing a slight burning smell. All this work can really take a toll on not only your electric or gas bill, but your machine, shortening its lifespan. And, dryers can be expensive! So, extend the life of our dryer and help control your utility bills by having your dryer vents and ducts looked at and cleaned on a regular basis.
Take the time to open your home or business’ dryer vents and take a look. If they are filled with lint, it may be time to call the professionals.
