Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning by Fire Safety Experts
For most of us, the clothes dryer is a convenience we cannot do without. However, did you know that dryer vents are now considered to be more of a fire hazard than chimneys? Batts’ Chimney Services is committed to helping our customers by performing certified dryer vent cleaning that minimizes the risk of costly fire damage and even death.
The Importance of Routine Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer lint is a highly combustible material. It accumulates in the back of the dryer as well as the dryer exhaust vent and can easily catch fire. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an alert due to the fact that there are 15,500 fires, 10 deaths and 310 injuries from dryer exhaust fires annually. The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) and FEMA report that the leading cause of these fires was failure to clean. They offer that by observing a few simple indications of poor system performance, it can be determined whether the dryer components need to be examined by a professional for any blockage or excessive heat.
Signs you need professional dryer vent cleaning service include:
- Heavy clothes such as blue jeans and towels are taking a long time to dry.
- Clothes feel hotter than usual at the end of the cycle.
If these situations are occurring, a clogged dryer vent is likely the problem.
