Why is it important to have your dryer vent cleaned?
Debris and lint inherently collects within the turns, bends, crevasses and low laying areas of your dryer vent resulting in poor exhaust air flow. Inadequate air flow from your dryer causes drying times to increase and places strain on your dryer. This strain causes the dryer to overheat and in turn can cause your heating element, high limit switch, motor and other vital parts to fail prematurely and ultimately leaving your dryer inoperable. More importantly, dryer lint is very flammable and having a clogged dryer vent can and will lead to a fire. - The Consumer Products Safety Commission shows that there are an estimated 15,500 fires, 10 deaths, and 310 injuries associated with clothes dryers each year.
