If you’re like the majority of Washington D.C residents, you’ve probably never given much thought to cleaning your dryer vent. Cleaning the lint trap in your dryer between loads is common, but most people don’t consider the dryer vent. There are several benefits associated with investing in dryer vent cleaning for your home.
Save Time on Your Laundry
Have you ever opened the door to your dryer after a cycle and found that the clothing inside is still damp? If there’s no lint in your lint trap, the problem may stem from a dirty dryer vent. Having your dryer vent cleaned can help save time by removing the need to dry the same load of laundry multiple times.
Time is Money
Not only is it inconvenient to dry the same load of laundry multiple times, but it also has a negative impact on your utility bills. Every time your dryer is in operation, you’re increasing your monthly utility bills. When you’re increasing your utility bills to dry the same load of laundry multiple times, you’re not only losing time but you’re also losing money.
When dust, lint and debris get caught in your dryer vent, the possibility of a house fire grows. The material trapped in your dryer vent is highly flammable. When those materials become hot due to the air flowing into your dryer, the risk of a house fire becomes even greater.
Extend Dryer Life
Finally, it’s important to realize that cleaning your dryer vent will help extend the life expectancy of your dryer. A dirty dryer vent forces your dryer to work harder, which can decrease its life expectancy. Investing in dryer vent cleaning is an investment in your dryer itself.
