Fire experts do not often tell you this, but dirty lint-filled dryer vents are a cause for a high number of fires in the United States. This is why your dryer needs professional maintenance and cleaning from time to time. In fact, apart from the prevention of fires, which is a major concern, cleaning ensures that your dryer works optimally without the risk of constant breakdowns.
We know you might be asking how lint, fire, and your dryer correlate. Whenever you put in your clothes in the dryer, particles of the clothes shed off. These fibers are always so little that it is really not a problem at first. As time goes by the lint particles build up along the only easily accessible outlet area, dryer’s vent ducts.
The vent duct is meant to allow for adequate airflow which creates sufficient drying environment. Lint buildup on the duct does the exact opposite. Lint is combustible and with a buildup of hot air in the ducts it readily catches fire. Additionally, delayed drying means that your dryer will use more energy. So if your energy costs have increased considerably within the last one year and yet you still retain the same number of appliances it might be time to call a specialist. Talking of time, when was the last time you had your vent ducts cleaned?
It is recommended that you should have the ducts thoroughly cleaned at least once in a year. Most people are comfortable with a constant brush of the ducts and replacement of the vent mesh. This DIY approach is commendable. Nonetheless, professional service is better, because apart from mechanical brushing we are able to inspect the state of your whole vent for signs of warping and recommend repairs on the duct.
