Dryer Vent Cleaning Benefits
When dryer vents aren’t regularly cleaned, they become clogged with lint and dust. The heat that is created from your dryer in a normal drying cycle can potentially ignite the lint, starting a fire. According to the US Fire Administration ( a division of FEMA), Clothes dryer fires account for about 15,600 structure fires, 15 deaths, and 400 injuries annually.
When a dryer vent is clogged, the humidity in the dryer can’t leave the house like it is designed to do. The result is high humidity in the dryer and surrounding area.
The result of excess humidity in a house from a clogged dryer vent can create a moist environment that promotes the growth of mold and mildew. These conditions can lead to respiratory and other problems for the people living in the house.
Just like humidity can’t leave the house as it should when a dryer vent is clogged, either can lint and small particles. The lint trap won’t work properly and dust will escape into your house.
Any way that you can minimize the length of your dry times will reduce your energy consumption. If your dryer vent is clogged, the moist air can’t escape, resulting in damp clothes that won’t get dry. If your dryer vent is cleaned regularly, the dryer can work properly to remove moisture from your clothes, which will shorten your dry times and save you money.
