The Importance of Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning
It may never have occurred to you that having your dryer vent cleaned on a regular basis is even more important than cleaning your lint trap. Over time, your dryer vent accumulates a lot of lint. If you’ve ever noticed that your dryer isn’t running efficiently and you have to run the dryer again and again, just to dry the things you used to dry in one cycle, you’ve probably got a clogged dryer vent. If your dryer is forced to work a lot harder to do its job, it’s also costing you more money to run it. A clogged dryer vent causes the dryer to get much hotter. The hotter the dryer gets, the harder it has to work. This increases the likelihood that the motor will overheat. One of the leading causes of dryer fires is overheated motors.
