4 Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning

By: Dayne

When a lot of people hear about the maintenance they need to do on various aspects of their home, they often brush them off. There are a number of reasons for this from just not wanting to take the time to have anything done, not wanting to pay someone to clean out the system or just thinking that the dryer will be fine if they just ignore it. But the truth is there are many benefits of cleaning your dryer and dryer vent regularly. Here's a look: 

Prevent a Home Fire 

One of the biggest dangers from a clothes dryer is the possibility of a fire. Remember, a clothes dryer is a very hot working machine and that heat can be transferred to the items around it. Additionally, it is very possible that sparks can be tossed from your dryer, and lint that is caught up in a dirty vent can catch on fire. 

Avoid Costly Repairs 

For many people who find out they have a dead dryer the technician has the same words to tell them – if you had only done the maintenance, this wouldn't have happened. By keeping your clothes dryer in top shape all the time, you will lessen the chance for failures that lead to costly repairs. Additionally, if you have a technician doing regular maintenance, they may be able to catch a problem before it gets worse. 

Speed Up the Job 

A clogged dryer vent causes a slow working clothes dryer. All that lint that has gotten caught up in the vent system restricts air flow, reducing the performance of the dryer, taking 2 – 3 cycles to dry each load. 

Save Money on the Power Bill 

By keeping your dryer running cleanly and efficiently, you will be able to speed up the job of drying your clothes, and save a lot of money at the same time. If you consider it costs about $.75 per cycle of your dryer, a low performing machine that takes 2 or 3 cycles to dry a load of laundry is wasting $2.25 per load of laundry being dried. That's a lot of money you can keep in your wallet by maintaining your dryer.
