BENEFITS OF A CLEAN DRYER DUCT
T&B Appliance Repair & Dryer Vent Cleaning. LLC offers appliance cleaning as well as dryer duct cleaning.
Dryer vent cleaning maintenance is a necessity for every home with a dryer. Many homeowners overlook this maintenance since it is "out of sight, out of mind". And it turns into a daunting task that they can't do on their own. But with a professional's help, this daunting task will soon become an enjoyable experience as you gain the peace of mind of a clean dryer duct that will allow your dryer to operate to its full potential as well as dispose of any possibility of a fire hazard hidden in your home.
A dryer and dryer vent should be properly cleaned by a professional about once every 1-3 years. Depending on how often you use your dryer, the length of the dryer vent and if there are any pets in the home or not all factor into how often your vent should be cleaned. A dirty or clogged dryer vent could cause a wide range of issues with your dryer and its performance and even cause a dryer fire. Running your dryer 2x as long as it normally should to dry a load is a fast track to your dryer failing. Since you are using your dryer more than usual, certain parts will fail faster. Which in return forces you to repair or replace your dryer much sooner than you should've!
Over the years, our company has discovered many dryers with charred lint and wires inside the cabinet of the dryer. When the technician shows our customer what was hiding in their appliance, their reaction is always the same, they're shocked and horrified that a potential fire in their home was right under their nose and they had no idea! By the end of the cleaning, all they can say is "I wish I would've known to get it done sooner".
Our goal is to shine a light on how important maintenance can be, especially when it comes to your home appliances. It is just as important to regularly have your dryer cleaned out just as it is your dryer ducting.
Did you know that an estimate of 75% of the lint from your clothes escapes the dryer lint trap and ends up inside your dryer vent?
Over time, this escaped lint will build up inside the vent, which is why all vents need a regular cleaning. A dirty vent will cause a wide range of issues including:
- A dryer fire
-Possible mold/mildew build up
-If your dryer is gas operated and you have a neglected vent, you could be at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning
-Longer than usual dry times with your dryer
-Dryers can get hot to the touch and/or overheat, causing parts to fail
-Higher energy bills
WATCH WITH SOUND ON!
This customers complaint was that their dryer was taking multiple cycles to dry 1 load of clothes. They also noted that they heard a water-like gurgling sound coming from their dryer vent. Upon our inspection we found this large accumulation of water inside the dryer vent! So how did this happen? Dryers exhaust around 2-3 gallons of water per load. This vent has been neglected for many years, causing a large buildup of lint around the diameter of the vent, not allowing the water vapor to exit properly. Over time water accumulated in a low point of the vent system and restricted the air flow of the dryer, causing it to take longer to dry. We were the 3rd, and last, company she called to try to resolve her issue. Thanks to our skilled technician and proper equipment, we were able to clear out all the water and lint on the spot!
