Wow, just about 5,500 homes have dryer fires that are reported each year and cause about 29 deaths, 400 injuries, and around $192 million in property loss. You don’t want to be a statistic when it comes to this potential deadly risk. Here are 3 top reasons to avoid a dryer fire and keep your home safe and clean without risk by having your dryer vent professionally cleaned.
Reason 1: Your Dryer Will Catch Fire
This one is obvious, but it must be stressed on how important it is to know that if you don’t get your dryers cleaned, the chances of a dryer fire will heavily increase. Constant lint build up will create a flammable risk that is like throwing wood in a fire. Dryer lint is so dry and your dryer is very hot which is an unsafe situation that will create a fire in your house. Having a professional clean your dryer will efficiently and safely remove the congestion and discard all the flammable lint that is keeping your dryer at risk of a fire.
Reason 2: Your Dryer Will Last Longer
Are you sick and tired of having to buy a new dryer every few years? A main reason your dryer needs to be replaced is because it does not get cleaned each year and has to work harder to dry clothes. This causes stress on the machine which leads the system to fail and not work. Think of your dryer as a heart, if all its arteries get clogged up, it creates stress and has to work harder which leads to a heart attack. The same goes for your dryer, when the lint builds up it causes stress that acts just like a heart attack which results in a trip to dryer heaven.
Reason 3: Clothes Take Longer To Dry
Nobody likes to put on a wet or damp shirt. We’ll at least we hope that you don’t. When your dryer does not get cleaned on a yearly basis it takes forever to dry clothes. The air flow in the machine gets obstructed which leads to congestion that reduces the rate clothes are dried. Don’t go through the pains of having to dry your clothes twice and run up your electricity bill. Simply get a yearly cleaning to allow your dryer to function the way that it is supposed to without disruption to your clothes drying.
