Dryer Vent Cleaning

When’s the last time you had your dryer vent cleaned?
Did you know?…..there were over 15,000 dryer vent fires, in 2014 alone!

Most people think that cleaning out their lint screens after each load of laundry eliminates the risk of fire. The reality is that although they are reducing risk, they are not eliminating it. Lint screens only catch 25% of the lint created, while the remaining 75% of lint goes into the dryer vent and sticks onto the walls.

BEWARE!

THIS IS WHERE THE NUMBER ONE SOURCE OF FIRES, IGNITE.

Leading appliance manufacturers recommend a professional vent inspection and cleaning once a year in order to remove lint build up and ensure proper airflow.
