Did you know over 2,900 home fires are caused by dryer vents each year? They cause an estimated 100 injuries, 5 deaths and $35 million in property loss each year as well. But what exactly can you do to avoid this problem? Clean your dryer’s vent!
Maintaining your dryer requires a bit more than just cleaning the lint screen each time you do a load of laundry. Over time, dryer vents can become clogged, ultimately resulting in a fire. When this happens it could cost you a bunch of money but even more importantly, you or your loved one’s life. At Service Express we recommend your dryer’s ventilation system be properly cleaned at least once a year.
Each year countless house fires are caused due to improperly cleaned dryer vents. Luckily for homeowners there is a solution, routine cleaning to your dryer vent system. At Service Express in Houston we can properly clean dryer vents of any size! This can reduce the risk of a fire occurring while lowering utility costs and maintaining your dryer.
Wondering if your dryer vent is working properly? There are a few warning signs you can look out for. If your laundry is taking longer than usual to dry completely there may be a clog. If the hot moist air from your dryer is not getting out you will most likely need to run the dryer for a few more cycles. Another sign to look for is any unusual smells your clothing may have.
