Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vents probably aren’t on a list of things you thing about on a daily basis, or maybe even a monthly basis but maybe you should move it up your maintenance list. Build-up within dryer vents are the second leading cause of fires in homes. Dryer vent maintenance can solve many problems from happening and keep your home safe.
Drying vents are made from flexible plastic and or metal ducts. If your drying vent is restricted in any way, the vent can be easily crushed or kinked. Dryer vents are typically tucked away in small areas with very little room to work with.
The elbows of the vent are built to turn 90 degrees with limited space without restricting the flow of air. If the airflow was to become restricted, your drying vent would be a potential fire hazard.
