Don’t Forget to Clean your Dryer Vents

Your dryer is critical to your day-to-day household operation. The dryer is usually out of sight and out of mind and is generally neglected in many households. This article will discuss one key maintenance aspect that you should not ignore, cleaning your dryer vents.

The US Fire Administration reports that 34% of residential fires originate from dirty or clogged dryer vents. The combination of high temperatures and lint creates the ideal atmosphere for combustion (fire) to occur. Cleaning the dryer vent or exhaust is key to keeping you and your family safe from dryer related fires. The benefits outweigh the costs. Getting your dryer exhaust cleaned regularly will help you in the following areas.

  • Shorter Dryer Times
    • With a clean exhaust system for your dryer, it now has an unobstructed flow to allow the heated air to do what it was intended to do, dry your clothes.
  • Lower Utility Bills
    • Shorter drying times mean less gas and electricity usage. This means more money in your pocket.
  • Better Reliability
    • Dryers do fail and have to be serviced and maintained from time to time. Cleaning the exhaust piping is one of the most recommend maintenance procedures from all of the appliance manufacturers.
