Why Dryer Vent Cleaning is Extremely Important.

Why Dryer Vent Cleaning is Extremely Important.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, dryers were the cause of more than 18,000 U.S. home fires last year. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer hose and vent duct, reducing air flow, backing up exhaust gases and eventually creating a fire.

Keeping you and your family safe is a top priority, but there are additional benefits of using Gator Clean for your dryer vent. A clean vent means efficient drying, which saves money. Your clothing should only take one cycle to dry. If it's taking longer, that's a sign you are due for a cleaning.

You'll save time and aggravation with a clean vent. Instead of watching over laundry, you'll be free to do more important things.

A clear dryer vent prevents a fire. 98% of your vent can't be seen. It's confined to areas inside your walls, floor joist, crawl space and attic. When you hire a trained professional who has seen every make and model dryer that exists, they have all the appropriate equipment to do the job correctly.

Signs your dryer vent needs to be cleaned:

  • It's been a year since the last cleaning.
  • Drying time takes longer and longer.
  • You can smell something burning. Lint is extremely flammable.

Larger households or those with shedding pets should have their vents cleaned more often.

Just because you can't see the problem doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Dryer vent fires claim lives and cause millions of dollars' worth of damage every year. Dryer Vent Cleaning should be a regular part of every household maintenance plan.

Danielle and Kelly were so great! They had my dryer vent with over 12 years of garbage cleaned out in under an hour. What a fire hazard that could’ve been. My dryer was no longer drying my laundry because the vent was completely blocked. Don’t be like me, Clean out your vents every year people!!

One of the best duct cleaning companies I've ever worked with. As a mold remediation professional I've called on them to help my personal clients many times. They are always on time, fairly priced and very professional. Their reliability and consistent results, is unlike any other I've worked with. Highly recommended. Thank you Gator Clean!

Or perhaps it could be something else entirely that you can't seem to pinpoint and shove outside. Here you might learn why your house smells, and how you can get rid of that lingering scent and breathe deep in your own home again.
