Did you know that an estimated 14,000 to 15,000 house fires ignite simply from your dryer? According to the National Fire Protection Association, this is nothing less than the truth! To prevent your home from becoming another statistic, your dryer vent should be professional inspected and cleaned at least once a year. Not only will this protect your property, but you will immediately notice an increase in efficiency for your dyer.
So how do you know if your dryer vent needs to be cleaned? We have the two most common indications that your vent may need an inspection. Firstly, your clothes may be taking longer than normal to dry. If two cycles are not enough to dry your clothes, then you may have a clogged vent. And secondly, the laundry area perhaps feels overly hot when the dryer is running. If you are experiencing this, then that means the hot air is not properly escaping from the vent, also indicating a clog.
Here are some tips you can follow on a daily basis to help ensure the safety of your home!
