Сall Green Ductors To Clean A Dryer Vent

Everyone loves fresh, fluffy towels straight from the dryer. But what happens when the machine stops working as efficiently as it used to? More often than not, a clogged dryer vent is the culprit. Vents collect direct, dander, dust, and other contaminants each time you run your dryer. When the dryer vent is clogged with debris and lint, you might notice your clothes taking longer to dry, a musty odor appears or the dryer becoming unusually hot to the touch. This isn't just an inconvenience. It indicates a significant safety risk for you and your family. Thousands of home fires each year are caused by lint buildup in dryer vents. Besides, a clogged vent can reduce your dryer's performance, wasting extra time and increasing your energy bills. And these are just some of the risks you may face by neglecting to thoroughly clean your dryers.

2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to the U.S. Fire Departments each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss.

Risks You May Face Without Properly Cleaning Dryer Vent

Mold growth

Not only does regular cleaning dryer vent pipe enhance the efficiency of your dryer, but also prevents mold from forming in your home. Clogged dryer vents can trap moisture, creating an ideal environment for mold to thrive. Mold spores are not only unsightly but can also pose serious health risks to you and your family.

Higher energy costs and shorter dryer lifespan

A clogged dryer channel does not allow moisture to escape freely. As a result, the dryer has to run longer to dry each load. This causes your dryer to wear out faster and your energy costs to rise steadily. In addition, you may spend extra money on repairs or the purchase of a new appliance. Thorough duct and dryer vent cleaning ensures sufficient airflow from the dryer through the ventilation duct and the external ventilation cover, saving you money.

Fire hazard

Excess lint caught in the ventilation system is flammable and reduces airflow. When drying laundry, the vents release hot air and lint, increasing the fire risk.

Carbon monoxide poisoning

Blocked, obstructed, or inadequately maintained vents in gas dryers can lead to the accumulation of carbon monoxide within the house. Constant gas dryer vent cleaning goes a long way toward solving this problem.

Over time, the dryer vent hose may fall out or become loose. When the hose is disconnected, the lint is carried all over the floor and it becomes hot in the laundry.
