Have you had your dryer vents cleaned out recently?

Many underestimate just how vital these services are, but this is one instance where a little work now will pay off a lot down the line.

Check out three reasons why dryer vent cleanings are a must for every household. Then, give the CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians here at Lords Chimney a call today. We would love to help you out every step of the way!

1. Your Dryer Will Run More Efficientlywhite house with air and dryer vent ducts

One huge benefit of having your dryer vents thoroughly cleaned out is improved efficiency from your appliance. If you have to run multiple cycles to get a load of laundry dry, then something is obviously not running right, and you will wind up wasting a lot of time and energy. Not to mention, all those extra hours of drying can cause an increase in your monthly bills.

Many folks are quick to blame the dryer when these issues start to occur, but most of the time a simple dryer vent cleaning is all it takes to get things back to normal. It is well worth the investment, so call our team right away, so we can set something up.

2. Lower Risk Of Carbon Monoxide Exposure

Avoiding dryer vent cleanings can also increase the risk of carbon monoxide entering your home. If your vents are clogged up with lint and excess debris, the fumes and gases from your appliance will not be able to escape outside, thus increasing your chances of exposure significantly.

Carbon monoxide has caused many deaths throughout the years, and it’s colorless, odorless nature makes it especially hard to detect. Avoiding it at all costs is extremely important when it comes to keeping your loved ones as safe as possible. We advise all homeowners to have their gas appliances regularly checked over by a professional, and to invest in carbon monoxide detectors for their home, as well. These few simple steps can make all the difference.

3. Clogged Vents Cause Fires

Thousands of fires occur every year because of dryer-related issues, and most of these have to do with clogged up vents. When lint builds up, it is easy for your dryer to overheat, which can cause flames to form in a hurry. Needless to say, this could lead to hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars in structural damage, and it puts your family members in incredible danger, as well.
