• Prevent Dryer Fires
Lint buildup is a leading cause of dryer fires. While you may think that dryer fires are uncommon, the statistics prove otherwise:
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, there are approximately 2,900 clothes dryer fires each year (usfa.gov). These dryer fires cause an estimated 5 deaths and 100 injuries per year. In addition, dryer fires account for $35 million in property loss each year. Failure to clean the dryer causes approximately 34% of dryer fires.
• Make Your Dryer Work Faster
If your dryer vent is full of lint, it will makes your dryer take longer to finish each load. Are you noticing that your dryer doesn't work as fast as it used to? That's a tell-tale sign that you're in need of a dryer vent cleaning.
• Save Money
Another great perk of dryer vent cleaning is that it will ultimately make drying your clothes cost less. When lint gets stuck in your dryer vent, the dryer has to work harder and use more energy to get your clothing dry. By having your dryer vent expunged of hazardous debris at least once a year, you'll save yourself money in the long run.
