Believe it or not, clothes dryers are responsible for roughly 15,000 fires every year, not to mention over $80 million in property damage, 300+ injuries, and 20 deaths that result from those fires. Accordingly, having your dryer vent cleaned properly on a regular basis can make a huge difference in your comfort and safety.
In addition to a reduced risk of fire, here are some of the other benefits of having your dryer vent cleaned:
Everyone’s clothes dryers would run more efficiently and use far less energy when the vents are properly cleaned on a regular basis. Cleaning the vents will extend the life of your dryer, lower your utility bills, and keep you and your family safe inside your home.
If you are still wondering whether hiring a dryer vent cleaning service is worth it, consider the other costs… more wear and tear on your dryer, higher utility bills, and the risk of a house fire. Many condominium and apartment complexes require it on an annual or bi-annual basis for the safety of all residents. If yours doesn’t, ask management why not.
Ensure that you work with a licensed, insured and NADCA certified dryer vent cleaning company to get the highest quality professional service.
