Need Expert Dryer Vent Cleaning In DFW? Call Black Velvet Chimney
Did you know that one of the most common causes of house fires is actually clogged dryer vents? Most homeowners are aware of the fire hazards associated with chimneys and fireplaces, but have no idea that the clothes dryer vent can be just as dangerous when neglected. Are your dryer vents a fire hazard?
I Clean Out The Lint Trap With Every Load, Isn’t That Enough?
While it’s good to clean out the lint trap every time you use your clothes dryer, the trap only captures about 1/4 of the lint produced. The rest of that lint goes into the exhaust vent, where it can build up, cause blockages, restrict airflow, and easily ignite. Along with the safety hazards this scenario presents, clogged dryer vents can also lead to energy waste and time waste.
Think about it: are you running your dryer vent over and over again just to dry one load of laundry? Are your clothes or your clothes dryer hotter to the touch than they used to be after a cycle? This is because your dryer vent is clogged and your clothes dryer has to work harder to get the job done. More work and more dry cycles means more stress on your clothes dryer and higher utilities. But what can be done?
