Is Dryer Vent Cleaning Worth It?
Clogged Dryer Vents are Fire Hazards
One of the main reasons that having your dryer vents cleaned is so important is that lint build up can become a fire hazard. As you know, the dryer gets very hot when running, and excess lint is certainly flammable. Of course, under normal circumstances the small amount of lint that comes out of a load of clothes will not catch on fire. But if there is a lint buildup keeping the heat from escaping, the temperatures in your dryer vent can get high enough to cause ignition.
Having your dryer vent cleaned on a regular basis is also a great way to help your dryer function more efficiently. Have you noticed that it takes your dryer longer and longer to dry your clothes? Chances are that a simple dryer vent cleaning can take care of that problem. And that means you will not have to keep spending extra money for every load you put in.
Indoor Air Quality
Another reason to keep up with a regular schedule of dryer vent cleaning is that it can help improve the overall quality of the air inside your home. A properly functioning dryer vent will direct fumes, dust and other contaminants outside. But when excess buildup of lint and debris has compromised the ability of your dryer vent to function effectively, many of those fumes and contaminants are released into the indoor air of your home.
