Did you know each year sees thousands of dryer fires that end in millions in home damages, deaths and injuries across the nation? Every time your dryer cycles, lint collects in the vent in the wall. It’s normal for some lint to collect, but months without cleaning can become a hazard. If these vents haven’t been cleared, flammable lint can catch fire from the trapped heat.
Cleaning dryer vents will prevent fires, but it also can help energy efficiency. The specialists from Handyman Connection work with customers across the South Fraser area with dryer vent cleaning services.
Warning Signs of a Clogged Dryer Vent
Based on how many loads of laundry you dry, specialists recommend cleaning your dryer vent every 90 days. However, pay attention to signals to tip you off to potential problems like no lint on the screen or longer drying times.
The good news is there are ways to lower the chance of fires by using the proper materials for your dryer vent, avoid clogging and improperly placed termination. For example, avoid using vinyl or foil materials for dryer vents and don’t terminate dryer vents in crawl spaces or attics.
