Dryer Vent Cleaning
When it comes to dryer vent cleaning in Georgia, it’s incredibly important to ensure that you get your vents cleaned out regularly for a wide variety of reasons. After all, it may not seem like the biggest deal in the world today, but over time you can do quite a bit of damage to your home, if you don’t regularly get your vents cleaned .
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires are sparked every year by clothes dryers. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer vent, reducing air flow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, creating a fire hazard.These clothes dryer fires cause around 51 deaths, 380 injuries, and $236 million in property loss.
“Clothes dryers are an appliance that make our lives easier but we often take them for granted. We shouldn’t,” said Angie’s List founder, Angie Hicks. “We need to maintain them and most importantly have their vents cleaned.”
Glen Mayfield, a dryer vent technician, said the first sign that you might have a clog is when your dryer stops drying your clothes in one cycle. “The dryer is designed to exhaust the heat and the moisture while it’s drying. If that heat and moisture cannot get out of the dryer, then the dryer just sits there and keeps working itself but it can’t accomplish the drying. that means the dryer works harder and heat builds up and that is what can lead to a dryer vent fire.
Here are some of the signs that it’s time to clean your vent:
