Need Your Dryer Cleaned Or Repaired? We Can Help!
Dryer-related house fires cause thousands and thousands of dollars’ worth of damage and account for dozens of deaths each year. According to the NFPA’s (National Fire Protection Association) Fire Analysis and Research Division, most of these fires are a result of neglect and failure to clean. Many homeowners think that simply cleaning the lint trap keeps them protected from such fires. But the fact of the matter is, lint trap cleaning simply isn’t enough. For every load of laundry you do, lint, hair, and other debris are not just collected in the lint trap, but in the entire venting system. And since the venting system isn’t as easily accessible, it requires professional cleaning, and often gets overlooked. Unfortunately, this “out of sight – out of mind” mentality has caused many families to lose their homes and even their lives. Don’t put off having your dryer vent system professionally cleaned. For the safety of your family, make it a priority every year.
What Does A Dryer Vent Cleaning Involve?
When you have a Chimney Care Company technician come to your home for your annual dryer vent cleaning, you can expect the same level of cleanliness and professionalism that you expect during your annual sweep. We will loosen the lint buildup in the dryer vent using specialized brushes that are tough on lint, not on vents. All loosened debris will be immediately ingested by our powerful and efficient vacuums, guaranteeing a mess-free cleaning. Whatever the length of your dryer vent system, we will do a thorough job, making sure that every nook and cranny is free of debris.
During an annual dryer vent cleaning, we also check for any damage or obstructions within the vent system. Sometimes, animals can get into the system in search of a warm place to nest. Not only can this be noisy, smelly, and bothersome, it can be a very real fire hazard. If a Chimney Care Company technician comes across a nest or evidence of one from the past, the nest will be removed and the vent will be thoroughly cleaned.
In addition to being a fire hazard, lint buildup or an obstruction in the dryer vent disrupts air flow, and can significantly decrease your dryer’s efficiency. You will notice that each load of laundry requires longer drying times, and that the dryer seems to be running at higher heats. This will not only lead to higher utility bills, it will lead to a shorter life for your dryer and your clothes.
