Unless you clean the lint trap very often, you probably don’t think much about your dryer. As important, if not more important, is cleaning your dryer vent. Your San Antonio, TX, home will benefit from professional dryer vent cleaning in five ways.
Dryers last longer.
You will have to wait longer for your clothing to dry when lint clogs the dryer vent. The dryer will also work harder when the vent is blocked. As a result, its lifespan will be decreased
Ensures the prevention of carbon monoxide
If your dryer vent is clogged, it won’t vent harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, which impacts the quality of your indoor air. Diarrhea, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and dizziness are some of the symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure.
Symptoms of allergies and asthma are reduced
Allergens and asthma triggers aren’t always caused by pollen, dust, or pet dander. For instance, a dryer that does not dry fully causes moisture to accumulate on the vent wall, which encourages the growth of bacteria and other allergens.
Reduces the risk of fire
You need to be cautious regarding carbon monoxide as well as clogged dryer vents, which can cause fires. Linen is a highly flammable substance.
Reduces energy consumption
There is a common misconception that older dryers have longer drying times and that multiple cycles will raise your utility bills. To restore proper airflow, it’s often as simple as cleaning the dryer vent.
