Dryer vents, like many parts of appliances can be seen as “out of mind” will never stop working. But that is not the case. Like any tool a dryer runs and tools that are constantly moving eventually will require maintenance. In order for your dryer to continue to work as it should you have to make sure that it remains clean and clear. One of the most common issues we see with dryers, or something you may have experienced yourself, is overheating.
Cleaning your vents holds a great level of importance in your home. Dryer vents should be professionally cleaned at least once per year. Not only will this help to prolong the life of your dryer by unclogging lint, but it will also provide you with a safer environment. When dryer vents become clogged over time, and are not properly cleaned, this can be a contributing factor to dryer vent fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association, millions of dollars in property damage and hundreds of injuries occur on a yearly basis from dryer fires. A clean dryer vent can also help to improve energy efficiency which will give you the advantage of faster drying times and potentially lower electricity bills. Allow Premier Plus Carpet Care to put your mind at ease. Our Premier Plus technician will thoroughly clean the transition duct, as well as the dryer vent ducts in the walls leading to the exterior of your home.
Overheating can be shown by your dryer being significantly hot to the touch. As well as burn marks on clothing or an overly warm room from heat given off by the dryer.
That overheating can be caused by many things but a common one is a clogged dryer vent. A dryer vent is the tube where dust and lint is blown out of the back of the dryer and usually into the outside air. Those vents when new are clear and free but over time heavier dusts and items clog the inside and combined with heat and time can create an almost inner lair to the inside of your dryer vent. If your dryer vent is showing signs of becoming clogged be sure to contact us at Premier Plus as soon as possible. We make sure to clean your dryer vents safely and efficiently.
There are many benefits to cleaning your dryer vents besides avoiding the common overheating, for example.
Avoiding Dryer Fires: Like overheating this is caused directly from clogged air vents. A dryer fire is started once the heat in the dryer exceeds the limits and internal mechanisms light. Though some may think that it's not common, in the United States, from 2010 to 2014, fire departments responded to an average of 15,970 fires a year that were caused by either dryers or their neighboring washing machines. That's 63,880 house fires in 4 years! Basically it's a big deal and should not be overlooked.
Save Energy: Like any tool, dryers work best when clean and clear otherwise efficiency turns to inefficiency. Dryers can be a great consumer of energy and combined with the popular natural gas dryers can even be dangerous if not properly maintained. Keeping your dryer working smoothly by cleaning its vents is the best way to make sure your dryer is working in the most efficient way it can.
Reduce Risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Though it may sound severe carbon monoxide is a real danger and a cause for concern in homes. While being both odorless and colorless it can be fatal if gone undetected. Dryers are a producer of carbon monoxide but that gas escapes through the dryer vent. So of course if that vent is clogged the gas will escape the only way it can. Which is back into your home. By having your vents professionally cleaned you negate this possibility.
Dryer vent cleaning is a great way to keep your home safe from fires, dangerous gas and keep it running smoothly and efficiently. By hiring Premier Plus Carpet Care you ensure that you remain safe from those threats. If you have concerns about your dryer vents go ahead and give us a call! We will be happy to help!
