Twin Cities Clean Air helps protect your home from fire hazards by offering dryer vent cleaning services. Here’s an interesting fact about washing machine dryers—your dryer filter captures only 40% of the lint generated while the rest gets pulled back through the system and gets caught in your dryer vent. If left unattended, the lint accumulates, causing serious health and fire hazards! An astonishingly high number of accidental fires break out every year because of obstructed dryer vents in homes—as many as 25,000 per year as reported by the Consumer Products Safety Commission. More often than not, people don’t recognize the signs of a clogged dryer vent. This oversight could have disastrous results for your property. Moreover, if your machine is gas operated, then you need to be even more vigilant as there is a danger of carbon monoxide poisoning in the event of a fire.
Our dryer vent cleaning services not only assist with preventing fires but also have other practical benefits. When your dryer starts clogging up, your machine starts taking longer to dry clothes. It may take a while for you to notice. However, the time difference will begin to gradually grow longer and it may take a whole new second cycle to dry your clothes completely. Here’s where we come in. We help you reclaim lost time and the extra money spent on utilities because of repeated or slow drying cycles by thoroughly cleaning your dryer vents. Your dryer will work more efficiently and save you more money in the long run when you get its vents cleared out.
In addition, extra drying is also tough on your clothes. By simply getting your dryer vent cleaned, you can ensure you spend less on electricity bills as well as save your clothes unnecessary wear and tear.
