Prevent A Fire By Cleaning Your Dryer Lint Screen And Vent
The invention of the clothes dryer has been a godsend to households across the world. Its invention accommodates the busy lifestyles of today’s families. No longer do you have to have clothing dry around the home on racks or outdoors on clothes lines or make trips to the laundromat.
This appliance is now such a part of everyday life that you may tend to forget the safety measures you should take to protect your home and family from unforeseen dangers — like household fires.
You May Not Be Aware That a Home Dryer Can Cause a Fire
We take our home clothes dryers for granted. We use them on a regular basis but tend to forget that like all home appliances regular maintenance and upkeep is necessary to keep them running smoothly and safely. With dryers, upkeep is especially important because a build-up of lint can ignite a fire.
You may say, “But I already clean out the lint from the dryer’s filter.” That’s fine, but did you know that clothing fibers and airborne debris from the atmosphere can also cause a build up? This kind of accumulation isn’t visible because it collects in your dryer’s exhaust vents, ducts and the area surrounding the drum. It’s time to call in the lint cleaning services to do the job.
A Professional Assessment
A professional dryer vent technician will perform a thorough inspection of dryer exhaust duct (AKA: “dryer vent” by doing a visual inspection of the lint screen and the lint trap housing, the transition hose (flexible hose that connects the actual dryer to the exhaust duct that typically starts inside an interior wall of the laundry room) and the dryer vent termination hood (where the dryer vent ends--usually on the roof or the side of the home/building). During the initial inspection, the technician will be taking a lot of “before” pictures and will also do some air-flow testing so you have a “before” air-flow measurement as well. After the inspection, which is completely FREE and with no obligation, your technician will go over all the details of the inspection, give you an exact price quote to complete whatever work you approve and then he’ll get to work--to make sure your dryer is working as quickly and as safely as possible. He’ll also be sure to clean up behind, under and around the dryer to leave your laundry room cleaner than before he arrived!
