Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vents become clogged with lint because lint particles bypass the lint filter entering the duct with warm moist air which clings to the walls of the duct. The longer the duct, vertical duct, and turns increase this buildup. This buildup restricts airflow through the duct which increases back pressure on the dryer fan causing the dryer to overheat.
A plugged vent will certainly cause a dryer to run hotter and increase the chance that something could catch fire. A dirty vent, however, is only one link in a chain of events that must occur for a fire to start. Other events may include: failure of thermostat and limit switches in the dryer, lint inside the dryer, a missing or damaged lint screen, and a crushed hose behind the dryer.
There are numerous financial benefits from annual dryer vent cleaning. Removing the lint allows the dryer to operate more efficiently, reducing energy costs significantly. Drying times are decreased. Also, your dryer can last much longer since it's not operating at the higher temperatures that are caused by the lint buildup. The charge for this service is surprisingly reasonable, and it pays for itself in lower service and utility costs
