Why it is important to clean dryer vents regularly.

Why it is important to clean dryer vents regularly.

We've come a long way in drying our clothes, from outdoor clotheslines to top of the line electric dryers. Dryers give users a warm set of sheets in just a few moments versus the hours it could spend on a line, depending on the weather. Although electric dryers come with this convenience, it's not something you want to plug in and ignore. Here you will find why it's important to have your dryer vents cleaned out regularly.

Cleaning out your dryer vents on a regular basis ensures that your dryer will be working efficiently and drying your clothes properly. A sign that you may need to clean out the vents is still feeling slight dampness in the clothes after the dryer finishes its cycle. Clogged vents prevent air flow, which means all those wet clothes are just going to be slightly less wet, and have an odor. Another thought to keep in mind is that a clogged vent runs the risk of creating a fire! Lint and other debris can find its way into the vents, which backs up exhaust gases and could ignite a fire.

Keeping up with dryer vent maintenance is very do it yourself. Cleaning out the lint trap and the outside vent cap is a simple and easy task, but it is recommended that you have your dryer professionally maintained at least once a year. The professional maintenance time does vary though, as for a single person it could be once a year, but a family of four may need multiple checkups.

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.
