Residential Dryer Vent Cleaning in Longwood, Orlando, Windermere, Winter Park, Celebration, Lake Mary, FL, and Surrounding Areas
Many homeowners don’t realize there is a fire waiting to happen in their home at any moment. Every year almost 2,900 clothes dryers catch on fire throughout the United States. Chances are these homeowners didn’t even think about dryer fires. But these fires cause $35 million in property damage and can be largely avoided. Dryer vent cleaning is an affordable service every homeowner should consider as a yearly maintenance plan.
How do you know your dryer is ready for a dryer vent cleaning service?
The first sign will be that your clothes are taking longer and longer to dry. While you might be blaming it on the clothes or the efficiency of your clothes dryer, the dryer vent may be to blame. Some residents may complain that their dryer is “tired” or not “drying like it used to”. A dryer vent cleaning can easily bring back the efficiency of your dryer. Excess lint is to blame for the buildup and the reason it’s taking longer and longer. Additionally, this is creating the actual fuel for a fire. As the dryer works harder, more heat is produced. And, the lint buildup is a perfect fuel for starting a fire.
Here are some other signs:
- Clothes or linens extremely hot after the dryer stops
- Drying time increases over past year
- Lack of lint in the lint catcher
- Machine and dryer door feel hot
