Dryer Vent Cleaning Las Vegas
Although air pollution is often overlooked when cleaning homes, it plays a huge role in comfort and safety.
A duct system can for example become home to contaminants ranging from mold to bacteria and fungi. These colonies can cause allergies and other health problems. Not to mention that they can spread throughout ducts and become even more harmful.
When it comes to dryer vents, they too can become problematic if not regularly cleaned. In the United States alone dryer vent clogs cause more than 24,0000 fires a year and nearly $100 million in damages.
Are You Maintaining Your Dryer Vents?
At First Choice it’s our priority to keep home owners safe and informed about the dangers of clogged dryer vents. Even though fire departments and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommend to maintain dryers once a year, many home owners are never told this.
On top of maintain dryer vents once a year you should also be familiar with the symptoms of a clogged vent. Even a brand new dryer could clog up quickly if there are too many elbows in the dryer vent or if it is longer than 25 feet.
If your dryer is taking longer than usual to dry clothes then your vent could possibly be clogged. Another thing to look out for an overheated dryer or a burning smell. A clogged vent will reduce the amount of heat the dryer can get out, and it will heat up the dryer and everything around it instead.
A lint clog and a heating dryer are not two things you want to mix though. Lint is flammable and is the leading cause for dryer failure and fires.
Since many people leave their dryers working while they are around the house, or even out at work, the possibility of a lint fire is very dangerous. Simply maintaining dryers and cleaning their vents though will insure that there are no risks with running your dryer even if you’re not watching it every second throughout the load.
