Hidden risk

Many homeowners don’t think about their dryer vents, but they can be a major fire risk.

Have your dryer vents cleaned for a safer, more energy efficient home

Dryer vent cleaning is an important and often-overlooked piece of your home’s annual maintenance and upkeep. When these vents are not cleaned, it can lead to a serious fire hazard in your home.

An estimated 80% of dryer fires occur in residential homes. By cleaning these vents, you can reduce the risk of dryer-related fires in your home by 43.1%.

Homeowners are often amazed at the amount of dryer lint that can collect in a ventilation system over the course of just a few years — especially in the vents located deep within the wall cavity.

Why clean your dryer vents?

When your dryer vents are not cleaned properly, your system will begin to perform poorly and is forced to work harder to do its normal job. This will mean slower operation, poorly dried clothing, and a potential fire hazard. Additionally, your dryer will wear out sooner from the extra work, and your utility bills will rise by over $250 annually.

Signs that your dryer vents need cleaning:

Clothing loads take longer to dry
Clothing is very hot and damp at end of the load
A hot, humid laundry room at end of the load
The dryer itself feels hotter
There is no lint collecting on the screen
Excessive lint is collecting at the screen
Unusually high levels of “static cling”

We’ve seen cases where the dryer exhaust vent is so clogged that it’s almost completely stopping the airflow. A lint-clogged dryer can cost you as much as $18-$24 every month in added utility bills!

15,600 dryer fires each year!

As dryer vents clog with lint over several years, they can create a serious fire safety hazard in your home. 15,600 fires start in dryers each year, leading to 10-20 deaths and 400 injuries annually. Clean those vents professionally every 1-3 years. It’s also a good idea to never run your dryer when you’re sleeping or are away from home.
