Dangers Of A Dirty Vent

Dirty and clogged vents can lead to some pretty big issues down the line. First and foremost, you’ll notice inefficiency. Your clothes will take much longer to dry and you’ll be forced to run your dryer multiple times before your laundry can be taken out. This takes up valuable time and it will cause your energy bills to increase and your dryer to work harder, too!

Along with this, dirty dryer vents can lead to some dangerous situations for your home and family. For example, clogs can trigger fires to occur which will spread through your home in a hurry. Thousands of fires occur across the country every single year due to dryer vents that need cleaning! This leads to multiple injuries and has even caused hundreds of deaths and damages to homes. Definitely not worth the risk.

Unfortunately, fires aren’t all you need to worry about… Clogs and obstructions block air flow, sending hazardous fumes back into your home, where they can cause illnesses. Situations like these have sent many people to the hospital and some have proved to be fatal. Play it safer by calling in our professional team today!
