Dryer Vent Cleaning Near Phoenix
A recent report by the U.S. Fire Administration shows an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to U.S. fire departments each year and cause an estimated $35 million in property losses.
A plugged dryer vent can cause excessive heat build up within the vent itself and the drying appliance, resulting in possible fire. A dirty vent, however, is only one link in possible chain of events that may include: excessive lint build up inside the dryer, a missing or damaged lint screen, a crushed hose behind the dryer and a failure of thermostat and limit switch in the dryer.
A dirty and clogged dryer vent can cause your dryer run inefficiently and cost you between $18 and $24 dollars a month in lost energy costs. Experts recommend a professional cleaning every 1-3 years to keep your dryer operating as it should.
