It’s crucially important that dryer vents be cleaned out regularly. The reasons are many: More efficient HVAC systems. Better indoor air quality. Fewer sniffles and sneezes due to dust mites and pet dander.
But easily the No. 1 reason for cleaning your home’s dryer vent is this: Dirty dryer vents are fire hazards, and that puts your home, your investment, and your family at risk.
We’re not being alarmist. In the United States, literally thousands of house fires, on average, are caused by clogged dryer vents. Statistics provided by the U.S. Fire Association say that approximately 2,900 reported fires annually are ignited in dryer vents, causing millions in property loss and, on tragic occasion, life loss.
Don’t play with fire. Get your dryer vents and air ducts cleaned out by JCS Home Services’ professional duct cleaning services in Leesburg VA.
If you don’t recall the last time you paid a company to visit your Leesburg property and really clean out that dryer vent and those air ducts – and you most likely would remember such a maintenance procedure, because it’s kind of a big deal – then chances are it’s time to call JCS Home Services for some expert dryer vent cleaning.
But if you do know when your last dryer vent cleaning was, then you’re due for another cleaning about 12 months later (given normal dryer usage). In commercial settings where the dryer is used constantly, it might be recommended to invest in dryer vent cleaning services even more frequently.
It’s like asking when you should brush your teeth. There’s just about no wrong answer. We offer dryer vent cleaning services in Leesburg VA on a year-round basis.
But if you want to time your dryer vent cleaning to have the most impact on reducing the risk of a dryer exhaust fire, then hire JCS Home Services for dryer vent cleaning shortly before the dry winter months of December and January. Most dryer-caused fires occur during those months, per the same USFA statistics cited above.
There’s really no downside to dryer vent cleaning.
Less dust and dirt to float in the air and into your family’s lungs . . . less lint and debris to clog up the vent . . . less moisture trapped in the ducts and vents, so less need for mold remediation.
Also, an unclogged vent and duct system is a more efficient vent and duct system, which has positive implications for the energy expenditures of your Leesburg home or commercial property.
Plus, regular dryer vent cleaning services will keep burrowing animals from building nests in the vent.
If that’s not enough, there’s also the (previously mentioned) fact that dryer vent and air duct cleaning is a smart way to reduce the risk of a fire starting in your Leesburg home.
