At Ashbusters, our top priority is ensuring our customers are safe from the hazards of a residential fire, and one of the ways we accomplish this is by professionally cleaning dryer vents. If you have never had this service, you are not alone as many homeowners believe all they need to do to keep their dryer vent clean is to clean off the lint trap before each load. However, lint can get trapped within the dryer vent and accumulate to form a blockage that can lead to dangerous situations, including a house fire. Having your dryer vents professionally cleaned will ensure every piece of lint from the venting system has been removed. Our dryer vent technicians have been certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and have passed a rigorous exam on how to properly inspect and maintain dryer vents. Our technicians know all of the codes and standards that apply to dryer vent systems. We would like to tell you more about why it is so important to have this maintenance service done once a year.
A clean dryer vent will not ignite a fire in your home.
The U.S Fire Administration has reported that an average of 15,600 structure fires, 15 deaths, and 400 injuries related to clothes dryers occur every year. The reason behind the majority of these clothes dryer fires is dirty vents. Lint is extremely flammable, and it does not take much for it to ignite. When lint is blocking the dryer vent, it makes the dryer get hotter, and this heat can easily cause the lint to start a fire. Having your dryer vents professionally cleaned will keep you, your family, and your home from becoming another clothes dryer fire statistic.
A clean dryer vent will prolong the life of your dryer.
When your dryer vent is clogged and dirty, your dryer must work harder in order to dry a load of clothes. This can be tough on this appliance as it can cause its heating element to burn out more quickly than normal. Scheduling a professional dryer vent cleaning from Ashbusters will extend the life of your dryer because your appliance will function much more efficiently and effectively with a clean dryer vent.
A clean dryer vent will save you money on your utility bills.
If you have noticed that it takes two dryer cycles to fully dry one load of clothes, you most likely have a dirty dryer vent. Having to repeatedly dry one load of clothes in two dryer cycles can cost you a lot of money on your utility bills. If your clothes are not completely dry in one dryer cycle, stop wasting money, and contact us to come and clean your dryer vent. You will notice a difference in your utility bills in the future.
