Your dryer vents exhaust and debris every time it is turned on. That exhaust leaves through a vent that can become just as clogged as any other vent in your home, if not more so due to the lint that is present in most dryer exhaust. While the venting system is decently efficient at filtering out this lint, it can, with time, start to clog, which is why you should have dryer vent cleaning in Atlanta performed on a fairly regular basis.
If your dryer vent is overdue for cleaning or if you are concerned about the overall safety of your ventilation system, call Solar Bear today. We specialize in all forms of duct and vent cleaning and maintenance and can ensure your dryer vents remain clear of potentially dangerous lint.
The Fire Risk of Clogged Dryer Vents
Unclean dryer vents are a potential fire hazard and should be inspected and cleaned as soon as possible. Here is why this is such a big problem. Dryer lint is exceptionally dry and therefore very flammable. At the same time, the exhaust from your dryer is very hot, so if enough lint builds up in the exhaust line or the vent, it can present a dangerous situation.
Every year, clogged dryer vents start thousands of house fires, a completely avoidable problem that we can handle with our Fort Lauderdale dryer vent cleaning services. The key is consistency. The small amount of lint that builds up in your vent over the course of one year is unlikely to start a fire –– so if you have your dryer vents cleaned annually, they should not present a serious problem.
Air Quality and Efficiency
Beyond the very obvious and dangerous fire risk of a clogged dryer vent, there are other issues at stake. Clogged dryer vents do not remove fume and exhaust efficiently from your dryer and can result in higher levels of both in your home’s air supply, reducing indoor air quality.
Additionally, your dryer will run less efficiently. This means clothes will be less dry after a single cycle and must be run more often to achieve the same level of dryness. More cycles mean more energy and that means more money out of your pocket. Dryer vent cleaning in West Palm Beach or any South Florida area, is an important way to improve the efficiency of your dryer, reduce indoor air pollution and minimize the risk of a fire.
