Dryer Vent Cleaning
According to the Fire Department, your dryer vent exhaust duct should be professionally cleaned once to twice a year. Not only does dryer vent cleaning help ensure the safety of your family and your home, but economically, dryer vent cleaning can result in improved efficiency of the washer/dryer. This improved
efficiency helps cut down on the cost and energy spent operating the dryer, perhaps extending the dryer’s useful life. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are an estimated annual 15,500 fires, 10 deaths, 10 injuries, and cases of carbon monoxide poisoning associated with improper maintenance of dryer vents.
