Wheat Ridge, CO - Dryer Vent Cleaning
Your clothes dryer offers a lot of convenience. With a simple push of a button, you have soft, dry clothes in under an hour. However, Wheat Ridge dryer vent cleanings are vital if you want this valuable appliance to continue running efficiently and safely.
Each time the dryer is used, the clothes inside shed fibers that form lint. Though the lint trap in the dryer catches much of this, there’s also a large portion — along with hot exhaust — that escapes through the vents and exhaust hood. Over the course of a year, that lint can build up to a dangerous degree.
Lint is highly flammable and makes for the perfect kindling. It’s full of air and easy to light a fire with. Each year in the U.S., there is an average of 2,900 dryer vent fires. Around 1,000 of those fires are a direct result of the dryer system not ever being cleaned.
On top of a clogged dryer vent system being a fire hazard, there are other concerns. With the system clogged, exhaust air can’t circulate as intended. This puts stress on the machine, shortening its lifespan and making dry times take way longer.
