In the cycle of cleaning and drying your clothes, you may forget that along with the familiar wash, dry and fold, there is also the need to clean the lint trap and the dryer vents. Here are five reasons why it is important to have your dryer vents cleaned.
Improved Cleaning Time
Clogged dryer vents can mean longer drying times for your clothes, as air circulation is needed to get clothes nice and dry.
Possible Fire Hazard
Dryer vents clogged with lint and other flammable fibers can be a huge fire hazard for homeowners.
Poisonous Gas Buildup
Blocked dryer vents can mean that, instead of entering the air outside, toxic fumes head back into your home and cause danger for your family.
Good for the Environment
Dryers with congested vents use more energy than dryers with clean vents, which is why clean dryer vents are good both for the environment and your energy consumption.
Good for Animals
Unsuspecting animals may see the soft, fluffy lining of a dryer vent and think that it’s a great place for a nest. Cleaning vents can remove the temptation for animals to linger or build a home in your vents.
Don’t let the monotony of laundry lull you into complacency about your dryer vents. To learn more reasons why you should have your dryer vents cleaned, call The Cinder Box at 317-442-8440.
