Most homes in the U.S. today have a washer and dryer. They are some of the most used appliances in the house. While most homeowners know to clean the lint tray in the dryer, not everyone realizes that it is equally important to have professional dryer vent cleaning.
Dryer Vents actually cause more fires than Chimneys or Fireplaces!
Believe it or not, dryer vents are now considered to be more of a fire hazard than chimneys. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued an alert due to the fact that there are 15,500 fires, 10 deaths and 310 injuries from dryer exhaust fires annually. Dryer vents accumulate highly flammable lint, and failure to clean out the lint can cause a very dangerous situation such as a fire or even a release of deadly carbon monoxide into your home. Failure to properly clean a dryer vent can also cause the heating element to burn out.
Dryer exhaust vents should be professionally inspected and cleaned annually. Since cleaning the dryer vent requires disconnecting the hose between the dryer and vent, it should only be done by an experienced professional, like Advanced Chimney Sweep. Our trained and certified professionals are not only experts in cleaning fireplaces, heating stoves, and chimneys, but we are also experts in dryer vent cleaning.
