Having your dryer vent professionally cleaned can provide a number of advantages, from improved safety to increased efficiency. Cleaning the dryer's ventilation grille can help reduce the risk of a potential fire, extend the machine's lifespan, and lower electricity bills. It can also help improve air quality in your home and reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Here are four key benefits of having your dryer vent cleaned by a professional.
Your Clothes Will Dry FasterBy cleaning the dryer's ventilation grille, you'll notice a significant improvement in the amount of time it takes to dry your clothes.
Since cleaning the dryer vents can reduce the average operating time of the dryer, it can also help you reduce electricity consumption. Cleaning the dryer's vents helps the dryer run smoothly and more efficiently, which translates to potentially shorter drying times.
The Dryer Will Last Longer with Fewer RepairsClogs in the dryer are due to the accumulation of waste, to the clothes themselves, to animal houses, and to many other flammable objects. These objects can retain heat and compress it, causing a fire. Or, the machine can ignite a spark and cause the obstruction (fuel for the fire) to turn into flames.
It is also common for these fires to be caused by electrical accidents. The combination of all of these possibilities and the risk of the dryer catching fire can cause the dryer to catch fire and eventually destroy your home. Fortunately, you can avoid devastating dryer fires caused by clogged ventilation grilles.
