Indoor air quality – if it’s not something that you think about often, you probably should. After all, it’s an important but often overlooked factor to your family’s overall health. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to symptoms like headaches, difficulty in concentrating, fatigue, as well as irritation to the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. If you’re looking for a simple way to improve the quality of the air you breathe, you should consider having your dryer vent cleaned.
How Cleaning Out Your Dryer Vent Can Improve Indoor Air Quality
Dust mites, chemicals, lint and animal dander can build up in your dryer duct and trigger the symptoms mentioned above. That’s where dryer vent cleaning comes in. This process clears out debris and allows allergens to escape through the vents around your home.
We recommend that you have your dryer vent professionally cleaned at least once each year. If it’s been a few years since you’ve had your dryer vent cleaned, then you likely have a significant buildup of harmful dust and debris that could pose a potential health hazard, even if you do not have a chronic respiratory illness.
Before calling in the professionals to deep clean your dryer vents, we recommend that you do a preliminary cleaning. Give your lint trap a good scrubbing over the sink using warm, soapy water. Next, you’ll want to clean in and around your lint trap. You can use a small car vacuum for this.
