There are many household chores and maintenance tasks that far too often get forgotten about or just plain neglected. One of them, which can have a major impact on your wallet and your home’s overall health, is dryer vent cleaning. This seemingly mundane task may not be at the top of your to-do list, but perhaps it should be. Here’s why you should have your dryer vents cleaned by a pro. Improved Energy Efficiency (Save Money & Time) A clogged dryer vent can result in the use of 30 to 40 percent more energy than a clean vent drying the same load. Understandably, clean vents translate into saving time on your laundry and money on your energy bills. When you hire a professional to clean dryer vents, you save even more time by having this chore completed while you focus on other things! Prevent Animal Nesting The buildup of lint in a dryer vent is very attractive to rodents and other animals, especially if the build up is so great that it keeps any exhaust flop propped open. An open vent door is an invitation to many critters looking for a warm place to nest. By keeping your vents clear of lint, you’ll keep animals where they need to be, outside! Reduce Chances of Fire Dryer lint is an extremely flammable material. Data provided by the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Data Center indicates that clothes dryers are the root cause of more than 15,000 structure fires in the United States every year. Of those, more than 80 percent are caused by clogged dryer vents. By letting a professional perform dryer vent cleaning, you can reduce the chances of a house fire.
