Cleaning Your Dryer Vent
It’s easy to forget that the air your dryer pushes out has to go somewhere. Just because it has a lint trap doesn’t mean it catches all the lint. The same vent that allows that air to escape may be coated in lint that wasn’t caught. This can be a major fire hazard. The best way to prevent it is with regular dryer vent cleaning Glendale, AZ homes need to stay safe. The best way to have it done right is by calling Sunrise Mechanical Inc.
How does lint get into a dryer vent?
Dryers expel the moisture and hot air created from the drying process. This goes through a vent that exits through a property, typically at the rear of the vent. Over time lint can collect. Just like in your lint catch the pieces can cling to one another. Sometimes filtration from a lint trap isn’t enough. These can cause two different problems.
Why should I have my dryer vents cleaned?
- Financial Savings: Dryers run much less efficiently when your vents are clogged. This can cost upwards of $24 dollars a month in additional electricity charges. In order to dry your clothes it takes longer and you have to run your dryer longer. This also puts more stress on your dryer and shortens its lifespan.
- Reduce Fire Hazards: According to the U.S. Fire Administration 2,900 clothes dryer fires occur every year. These cause an estimated $35 million in property loss, 100 injuries, and 5 deaths each year. This is preventable with dryer and dryer vent cleaning. We make the process easy and affordable.
Newer vents require special tools in order to properly clean them. Manually cleaning a vent might get surface lint, but deeper lint will continue to build up. This can be even more dangerous because an outward appearance of cleanliness can act like a false safety net. You may think your vents are clean as a deep clog builds up. If the vent clogs entirely your dryer could overheat and break or catch fire.
