Reduce the Risk of Dryer Fire.

*92% of fires involving washers and dryers are caused by dryers. These fires caused annual averages of 13 civilian deaths, 444 civilian injuries, and $238 million in direct property damage. The number one reason dryer fires start is failure to clean dryer vent, and dryer lint is the most common source of ignition. The risk of fire is the same for both gas and electric dryers.

 

Prevent carbon monoxide poising.

Many homeowners are familiar with the threat of fires due to improperly maintained dryers, but did you know about a secondary and very deadline, threat from carbon monoxide? The fumes that a gas dryer emits are dangerous. If these fumes are not able to escape through the vent, carbon monoxide will enter your house.

 

Eliminate mold issues.

Clogged vents can cause mold build-up. Mold can be a health hazard related to your dryer.  Clogged vents can encourage mold growth inside the vent line and in your laundry room, producing odor and health concerns.

 

Energy Savings.

A clean dryer vent extends the life of your dryer and saves money on your electric bill a appliance repair cost. A clean dryer vent will save you between $18 to $24 per month, and it will increase the life of you dryer.

 

Clothes last longer.

An efficient dryer vent is easier on your clothes over time. A clogged dryer vent can cause a buildup of heat in the dryer, which can then do damage to or ruin clothing. If you have to use multiple cycles to dry your clothes, there could be damage to them.  If heat properly vented from the dryer, the clothes would dry in the normal time required.

 

Appliance Efficiency.
A clean exhaust duct prevents heat, moisture and, in the case of gas clothes dryers, carbon monoxide from being trapped in your home. When this type of spillage occurs, energy, natural resources and time are all wasted because your appliance works too hard and runs longer than necessary. Moisture can also cause damage to drywall, wallpaper, ceilings and other building materials.

 

Wear on Your Clothes Dryer.
If your dryer takes twice as long to dry clothes as it should, the number of loads that it will dry is cut in half. The life of your clothes dryer decreases when the dryer runs at higher than designed temperatures. This can lead to the heating element burning out or a fire could ignite as a result of overworked safety controls.
