We recommend having your dryer vent cleaning Columbia Services taken care of at least once a year, or more often depending on how often you do laundry. are bigger families or people who tend to do multiple loads of laundry every day we would suggest more often in the year. One of the more obvious signs that your dryer vent system needs to be cleaned is that your dryer is taking much longer than it should for a normal load. This means that your dryer is not able to run at its intended efficiency typically because of a blockage in the dryer vent system. That tiny lint trap that you clean out at the end of every load cannot possibly catch all of the lint, hair, pet fur, papers, and anything else that is still stuck to your clothes after the wash. All of that debris then clogs up your dryer vent system. Not only is this not good for the efficiency and lifespan of your dryer, but it can also cause a fire.
The National Fire Protection Association states that dryers and washers cause an average of 15,970 fires each year with dryers being the cause of 92% of those fires. How crazy is that?! And these buyers often start off small and even behind the wall, making it much less noticeable until it’s possibly too late. I know this is scary and everybody wants to think “oh that wouldn’t happen to me” or “oh that’s a one in a million chance” but the statistic is right there! Almost 16,000 fires a year from your laundry machines, probably one of the most used machines in your home! And of those fires your dryer alone counts for over 14,500 of them! Take preventative measures by cleaning your dryer lint trap after every load (like I’m sure you already do) but by also having a team of professionals complete your dryer vent cleaning Columbia services yearly.

So as I mentioned not only is a clogged dryer vent a fire hazard but it is also a health hazard to you and your family. I know, I know this sounds weird but I assure you the dryer vent system can affect your health. If you are wondering why your clothes are coming out of the dryer smelling like mildew, it’s because a clogged dryer vent can build up mold, bacteria, dust, pollen, and fungi. A clean dryer vent will push all of those pollutants out of your house and into the open-air outside. When the dryer vent system is clogged, it can no longer do that. So now it can’t push those pollutants outside and they are instead being pushed back into your home. This can create allergy and asthma symptoms for you and your family. Typically you might be able to open your windows often and have that fresh air circulate through your house, let’s be honest this is the South. It’s hot. All the time. Or when the temperature does finally drop so suddenly that it went from having the AC on to having the heat on and you weren’t able to open your windows for very long. Your family’s safety and health is always our top concern, so give Window Ninjas a call for your dryer vent cleaning Columbia services today.
Now that I’ve mentioned some risks and not having your dryer vent system cleaned properly and often, I want to tell you the reward for having the service completed. Having your dryer vent system cleaned regularly helps in efficiency and lifespan of your dryer. If your dryer isn’t having to constantly fight to get your clothes dry then it’s lifespan will increase. And dryers run on high heat and having them run for extended periods of time and that high heat can actually damage your dryers parts. Not only is it good for the efficiency and lifespan of your dryer to have your dryer vent cleaned, but we’re also helping save you money. You save money by saving water because you don’t have to constantly rewash the clothes coming out of the dryer smelling like mildew. You save money by not having to replace those clothes that just can’t be saved from that mildew smell. And you save money by not immediately scraping the dryer and buying a new one. Saving money is great! Use that money to go out to dinner an extra time this week instead!
