Dryer Vent Cleaning
Like most of the other vents in your home, your dryer vent is probably not something you spend too much time thinking about. After all, you turn on the dryer and the vent whisks away all of the lint and fumes that running the cycle produces. And that is exactly what it is supposed to do. But just like any vent in your home, your dryer vent needs some attention from time to time to keep it working the way it should.
When it comes to keeping your dryer vent free of debris, cleaning your lint filter before and after every load is certainly a good start. But there are still plenty of areas that can become clogged that you cannot reach on your own. These areas do not need to be cleaned all that often, but it is still important to have them attended on a regular schedule to avoid complications.
As tempting as it might be to try to clean your own dryer vents, proper dryer vent cleaning is something that should only be attempted by a trained professional. The experienced technicians at Air Mechanical Heating, Cooling & Plumbing provide dryer vent cleaning services to customers all over the Andover area and would be glad to add you to our list of valued clients.
Clogged Dryer Vents are Fire Hazards
One of the main reasons that having your dryer vents cleaned is so important is that lint build up can become a fire hazard. As you know, the dryer gets very hot when running, and excess lint is certainly flammable. Of course, under normal circumstances the small amount of lint that comes out of a load of clothes will not catch on fire. But if there is a lint buildup keeping the heat from escaping, the temperatures in your dryer vent can get high enough to cause ignition.
Indoor Air Quality
Another reason to keep up with a regular schedule of dryer vent cleaning is that it can help improve the overall quality of the air inside your home. A properly functioning dryer vent will direct fumes, dust and other contaminants outside. But when excess buildup of lint and debris has compromised the ability of your dryer vent to function effectively, many of those fumes and contaminants are released into the indoor air of your home.
Having your dryer vent cleaned on a regular basis is also a great way to help your dryer function more efficiently. Have you noticed that it takes your dryer longer and longer to dry your clothes? Chances are that a simple dryer vent cleaning can take care of that problem. And that means you will not have to keep spending extra money for every load you put in.
