If you’re reading this, you probably have a dryer in your house. Dryers are extremely helpful appliances, as they eliminate the need for clotheslines and they get our clothes dry quickly and easily! But are you aware of the importance of keeping your dryer vent clean?
If you choose not to get your dryer vent cleaned, the following consequences can occur:
Fires. It is estimated that 15,000 fires per year start due to dryers not having lint cleaned out.
Money loss. If your dryer vent gets clogged, it can cost you lots of money because it uses much more energy than necessary.
Molds. The material that gets stuck in dryer vents is the ultimate breeding ground for molds that can make your whole family sick!
But there’s good news. Most of these instances can be avoided by taking one simple step: cleaning the dryer vent.
No, this does not mean just cleaning the lint trap in your dryer. (This should be done after every load of laundry… but it’s not enough to stop at the lint trap.) The lint trap simply doesn’t capture all the lint that’s produced as your clothes dry. As time goes on, lint begins to build up on the insides of the vent.
Experts recommend that you get your dryer vent cleaned at least twice a year. However, if you use your dryer daily or close to it, it’s recommended that you get your dryer vents cleaned three to four times a year.
