Boost Efficiency & Reduce Fire Risk With Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning Services
We all enjoy the convenience of having a clothes dryer, but are you doing your part to keep it functioning as safely and as efficiently as possible?
Many homeowners don’t realize it, but neglecting your dryer vent is just as dangerous as neglecting your chimney system. Like a chimney, the dryer vent is exposed to high temperatures and is responsible for venting dangerous gases. Additionally, like a chimney, a dryer vent can accumulate flammable buildup, which can easily lead to a house fire. That’s why those of us here at Michael’s Chimney Service & Restoration make dryer vent cleaning services available to our neighbors throughout Westchester, Fairfield, and Tolland counties. Our goal has always been to protect our customers and make homes safer and cleaner – and dryer vent cleaning services are an important part of that.
Most Dryer-Related House Fires Are Preventable
Each and every year, thousands of house fires in the U.S. result from neglected dryer vents. These house fires take lives, injure hundreds, and cause millions of dollars in property damage. The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) report states that most of these fires could have been prevented if the homeowner had kept up with professional dryer vent cleanings. Are you doing your part to protect your home and family against dryer-related fires and carbon monoxide poisoning?
You see, with each use of your clothes dryer, flammable lint can accumulate and settle along the vent on its way out of the home. This is especially true if the vent path is long and features a lot of rises, falls, twists, and turns. If your clothes dryer is not located against an exterior wall, there’s a good chance your vent travels a long, windy path through your home.
As lint builds up inside of your dryer vents, it narrows the vent, restricting air flow, and forcing your clothes dryer to work harder and hotter. Not only can these longer, hotter cycles easily ignite the lint that has accumulated in the vents, but these restricted vents can also force carbon monoxide to flow back into your home.
