dryer vent cleaning

Did you know? Having your home’s dryer vents cleaned each year can save your home from a catastrophic fire. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, nearly 17,000 dryer fires happen annually in homes nationwide, causing over 50 deaths, nearly 400 injuries, and $236 million in property loss. A clean exhaust dryer vent reduces the amount of heat, moisture, and carbon monoxide that is trapped within your home. Even worse, a lint-filled dryer takes twice as long to dry clothing as a clean dryer. When your dryer is being overworked, it can cost you energy and money.

Cleaning out your dryer’s lint trap after each use is key to keeping your home fire safe, but it doesn’t prevent fires entirely. Even if you’re vigilant about cleaning out the lint trap, lint and debris still accumulate in your dryer vent. Not only does this buildup cause your home’s fire risk to skyrocket; it also means that your dryer will become less efficient. Don’t put your Phoenix home at risk.

Here are some signs that your dryer vent may need professional cleaning:

  • Lint is gathering behind your dryer
  • Your laundry is taking longer to dry, especially towels and jeans
  • Your dryer shuts off before the timer goes off
  • Your clothes are hotter than normal after your dryer cycle
  • It’s been more than a year since your last cleaning
