Dryer Vent Cleaning Services
Neglecting to clean your dryer vents can cause more issues than just extra-long dry times and higher utility bills
Dryers are a convenient and time-saving appliance, but it can be frustrating when your clothes come out wrinkles or damp. Over time lint and debris accumulate in your dryer vents which can lead to clogs. A clogged up air passage will lead to increased wear on clothes, wasted energy consumption, and increased risk of fire damage. To help prevent this, it’s recommended by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to get your dryer vent serviced once a year.
Save Time & Increase Your Dryers Efficiency
As your dryer vent becomes clogged drying time gradually increases, and it’ll start taking extra time to fully dry your clothes. You can also bet that you’re spending extra on utilities due to that extended drying time! Extended drying cycles also mean your clothes will be subjected to more wear and weathering. The best way to help prevent this is by having your dryer vents serviced regularly with our professional team!
