Many home owners overlook the importance of properly cleaned dryer vents and typically feel that this service isn’t essential. However, the care and maintenance of your dryer vent or dryer duct should not be neglected. Thought it is relatively easy for you to clean the lint trap, that is only the very beginning of the duct and the entire length should be cleaned. This is when you need to hire a professional dryer vent cleaning company, like Dapper Ducts.
There are a number of reasons why a dryer’s airflow can become restricted besides the build-up of lint. For instance, the warm air that is emitted from dryer vents attracts birds and other animals, especially during the colder months of winter. As a result, they will try to build their nests in the vent. If you cannot clean all of the nesting materials out of your dryer vents, you could be setting yourself up for a potential costly and dangerous situation.
The flexible duct that runs from the back of your dryer to the vent outside your home is another issue of concern. Wet lint collects in the bends of the duct and sticks to the walls. This lint can pile up in each bend reducing air flow.
