Appleton, WI - Dryer Vent Cleaning
Your clothes dryer is a modern convenience. With a turn of a dial, you’re able to get dry clothes fast. To keep your appliance running efficiently and safely, you need Appleton dryer vent cleanings.
Every time you use your dryer, the clothes inside shed fibers. These fibers are what form lint. Though the lint trap captures much of this fiber, there’s still a large amount that escapes through the vents and exhaust hood. On average, your dryer handles about 250 loads of laundry. That’s a lot of lint accumulated within the vent system after an entire year.
This amount of lint buildup is dangerous. Lint is perfect for kindling because it’s easy to light. On average, there are 2,900 dryer vent fires every year in the U.S. About 1,000 of these fires happen because the dryer system was never cleaned.
In addition to being a fire hazard, a dryer vent system clogged with lint can block the flow of air. When that happens, exhaust air isn’t able to circulate. This puts stress on the dryer that can end up shortening its lifespan and making dry times take even longer.
To avoid these issues, book an Appleton dryer vent cleaning with Fresh Sweeps Chimney & Air Duct. We will inspect the dryer vents, then use a negative air pressure machine and vacuum to achieve a thorough clean.
After we are done, you can rest assured that you have a dryer vent system that is clean, that your dryer will run smoother, and your home is safer. If that sounds good to you, then give us a quick call at 888-373-4793.
