Do you know the dangers of not having your dryer vent cleaned? Dryer Vent Cleaning Hampstead services would like to use this article to give you a brief understanding. Dryer vents collect lint which can become highly flammable. If you would like to speak with our customer service team, you can give us a call at 910-538-4223 or visit our website windowninjas.com.
How Often Do I Need My Dryer Cleaned?
Dryer Vent Cleaning Hampstead services recommend having your dryer cleaned at least once a year for single families. If you have a large family of 5 or more people then we recommend having it cleaned every six to nine months. This also applies for if you have two or more pets as a part of your family since their hair collects on laundry and ends up in the dryer. The more often you do laundry, then you will need your dryer vent cleaned more frequently. I know my family and I do lots of laundry since the arrival of my three month old who spits up on just about every new item of clothing.
What Are The Benefits Of Dryer Vent Cleaning?
There are so many benefits of having a Dryer Vent Cleaning Hampstead service done. The biggest benefit is that having your dryer properly cleaned reduces your risk of a fire. Cleaning out the lint trap after every use doesn’t remove any of the lint build up in the vent. Lint is highly flammable and can light our whole home or apartment building on fire. Even the tiniest spark can lead to a disastrous fire. Lint is not the only debris that builds up in your vent. Along with lint, pet hair builds up inside the lint. Pet hair can cause allergic reactions such as hives or allergy attacks.
Along with allergens, mold and mildew build up in your dryer vent. This is because your dryer absorbs the water on your clothes when drying. The mold and mildew then build up in the dryer vent and around the surrounding areas. When your dryer collects lots of lint and debris, it is working so much harder than usual and exhausting your dryer. This can run up your electric bill since you may have to dry the clothes twice to make up for the dryers exhaustion. Having a Dryer Vent Cleaning Hampstead technician service your dryer can prolong the life of your dryer and lower your energy bill.
If you happen to have a gas powered dryer, then this can be a carbon monoxide build up hazard. This is usually disposed of through the vent but when build up occurs it makes it almost impossible for the carbon monoxide to escape. You may be wondering “ what is carbon monoxide?”. Carbon monoxide is a tasteless, odorless gas that is heavier than air. It will sink to the floor because it is heavier than air. When exposed to carbon monoxide, your body is at great risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. If you have a carbon monoxide detector, it should be pointed toward the floor. This is the only way to detect if you have a build up. Having a regular Dryer Vent Cleaning Hampstead service prevents this buildup.
Why Not Do It Yourself?
Clogged dryer vents decrease the life of your dryer and pose a great risk to your family, self and loved ones. When you book a Dryer Vent Cleaning Hampstead service, you are ensuring that your dryer is being properly cleaned. Cleaning your own dryer does not ensure that you have removed all harmful substances. You could even potentially make the clog worse. Creating a greater clog poses a great multitude of risks. This may even result in you having to call us anyways. This would be double the work and money because you would have bought the tools to do it and then had to book a service.
`We here at Dryer Vent Cleaning Hampstead have the right tools to effectively clean your vent. We want to leave you worry free and help protect yourself and loved ones from the risk of potential fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. When you clean your own dryer you can’t guarantee you have cleaned all the carbon monoxide or lint. We are trained and certified in what we do and we take pride in this. Leaving yourself at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning is also a risk if you aren’t properly equipped.
