Our Courteous & Knowledgeable Team Offers Dryer Vent Cleanings & Dryer Venting Solutions
One thing we stress here at English Sweep, Inc. is the importance of annual chimney inspections. But these aren’t the only areas that need annual care.
Your dryer vents also need annual inspections, routine cleanings, and regular maintenance. Unfortunately, because dryer vents are typically somewhat hidden and out of sight, many forget they’re even there and neglect to get that professional care booked.
Why Dryer Vent Cleanings Are Important
- They Ensure Greater Dryer Efficiency
Dryers shouldn’t have to be run multiple times to dry just one load of laundry. Unfortunately, this a common occurrence in many households, with most homeowners chalking it up to an old or inefficient dryer. Eventually, they go out and invest in a new dryer, only to discover the same issues still occur.
So, before you go invest in a new dryer, call English Sweep, Inc. The solution may be easier and more cost effective than you think. If you start investing in dryer vent cleanings, you’ll likely find that your dryer-related issues were simply due to a clogged up venting system.
- They Lower Your Risk of Carbon Monoxide Exposure
Due to its colorless, odorless, and extremely poisonous nature, carbon monoxide is one gas people work hard to avoid. You may already be investing in regular chimney inspections, along with carbon monoxide detectors for your home, but if you want to ensure your household truly stays safer, your dryer vents should be examined regularly as well.
Because the reality is that a clogged up vent is going to make it much more likely that harmful carbon monoxide fumes will enter your home. Avoid the risk by having those pathways cleared out routinely.
- They Reduce Potential Fire Hazards
The leading cause of dryer-related fires is clogged vents. Every single year these events lead to home damage, injury, and even death. But they can be easily avoided by simply getting those vents cleaned of debris.
How do these fires happen? Well, dryer lint is one of the more flammable materials out there. And when there’s a big buildup of it, a couple of things could happen. Either your appliance could overheat and eventually ignite the lint (which then could rapidly spread through the vent into your laundry room), or a stray spark from something electrical could land on the lint, causing it to catch on fire.
Both scenarios can be avoided with professional maintenance.
We Also Offer Other Dryer-Related Services
Clogged up vents are a huge cause of many dryer-related issues, but there could be problems elsewhere, too. If your dryer is having trouble venting, there could be a need for a booster vent, for example. Or perhaps your terminations need to be updated. Regardless, we’re here to help, and we would be happy to set you up with everything you need to get the most from your clothes dryer.
