You may be wondering why getting your dryer vent cleaned is so important for its capabilities. Cleaning is something you should be keeping up with regularly to keep you from coming in contact with hazardous situations such as a fire with your dryer vent. Below is some information provided to inform you about the advantages of cleaning and why it is such a necessity.
Why? Easy answer: The risk of fire. Lint that is left in your ventilation system causes your dryer to overheat. You may not realize that lint is actual extremely flammable and is easy to catch fire. A clean dryer vent significantly reduces the risk of fire and allows your dryer to dry your clothes in a fast and efficient way. It also expands the life of your dryer system while also saving you time and money in the long run.
How? The simple question of how often should you be cleaning your dryer vents has just as simple of an answer: Often. Depending on the type of dryer you own as well as how often you use it, it is wise to clean your vents often and on a regular basis. Always be proactive in doing your part with keeping up with your dryer’s lint. This simple practice can be lifesaving.
When? When do you think you should you call a professional to come and clean out your vents? Well, if you suspect any of the side effects of an insufficient dryer such as any odors, clothes not drying well, too hot of temperatures in your laundry room and on clothes, get a trained expert out to professionally clean your vents.
In addition to having your dryer vent cleaned out regularly, here is a quick list of recommendations you can use to prevent any type of fire hazard from your dryer:
- Do not use the dryer without a lint filter
- Clean your lint filter after every use
- Do not dry every piece of fabric including heavy bedding or pillows that could be line dried
- Only run drying cycles for 30 to 40 minutes at a time
- Keep up with your dryer and make sure it is in proper working order
- Turn off the dryer if you leave your home or go to sleep
