What About Dryer Vents?
Dryer filters catch only 40-60 percent of lint. So what happens to the rest? It gets stuck in dryer vent and unfortunately, can cause a problem not only for your machine’s efficiency, but also for your home’s safety! We will remove this extra lint to ensure that your machine is running smoothly. Every machine should be checked every 2-3 years, so that the lint doesn’t reach unsafe levels and become a fire hazard. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission over 25,000 fires a year are dryer-related and they are even more dangerous if they are gas-operated, as there is the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. So how do you know if your machine needs to be checked? If it is becoming hotter while in use or taking longer to dry your clothes, this is a sign that it is working harder than it should be.
