The Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning

Your dryer vent hose moves hot, humid air that results from drying clothes to the outside of your home. Lint builds up in your dryer vent and your lint trap over time, reducing your dryer’s efficiency and increasing the humidity in your Frankfort, Illinois, home every time you dry clothes. It can also increase the risk of a fire. You should have your dryer vent and the entire exhaust system cleaned by a professional once per year to save energy, increase your indoor air quality, and prevent damage to your equipment.

Saving Energy

With a clogged dryer vent, your dryer will take longer to dry your clothing and make your laundry room hot and uncomfortable. This raises your utility bills. Clothes that stay in a dryer longer also wear out faster. You might be able to spend less on energy and clothing with a clean dryer vent.

Increasing Indoor Air Quality

Clogged vents in gas dryers can’t get rid of carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas that can cause flu-like symptoms and even lead to death. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas, so unfortunately, you are only likely to be aware of a problem when exposed persons start to show symptoms. It is a good idea to have gas-burning equipment checked. Carbon monoxide detectors should be installed on each floor of your home, and ideally close to bedrooms.

Preventing Problems

Cleaning your dryer vent regularly keeps your dryer from having to run as long and extends its life. Removing lint also prevents buildup in your dryer’s moving parts and prevents breakdowns. Many people don’t realize that they should have their dryer vent cleaned and instead replace their dryer when it starts to take a long time to dry clothes. This is a waste of money since the new dryer will still be connected to a clogged vent.
