Why Clean Your Dryer Vent?

Increased Dryer Efficiency

Dryers operate in a pretty basic manner. The heating element in the dryer will heat up the air, the clothes tumble around the drum while the warm air dries the clothes, then that warm air gets exhausted through the dryer vent to the outside world. Over time, the dryer lint gets stuck to the side walls on the dryer vent, slowly decreasing the overall diameter of the vent. If the diameter of the dryer duct is decreased, the warm air has a more difficult time getting exhausted to the exterior of the home. Routine maintenance and cleaning of your dryer vent will ensure this warm air can vent outside with ease.

If the dryer vent is clogged with lint, debris, or birds’ nests, the warm air cannot escape. Oftentimes, people will complain of extended drying times which is typically a great indication that there may be a clog.

Decrease Risk of Fire

Lint is extremely flammable and it does not take much for it to catch fire. In our previous section above, we mentioned how the dryer works. The air that runs from the clothes dryer to the exterior vent is extremely hot. If the lint in the dryer vent becomes clogged, it has greater exposure to the warm air. Over time, you are exposing yourself to extreme risk of a housefire.

To reduce the risk and to keep your family and home safe, Dryer Vent Cleaning of Delaware recommends annual cleaning service. If you have a large family and are running the clothes dryer more than normal usage, you may want to consider vent cleaning services every 6-9 months instead to reduce the risk.

Increase The Life Of Your Dryer

Routine maintenance of your dryer and the dryer vent can dramatically increase your clothes dryer’s life expectancy. When your dryer is running far more efficiency due to routine maintenance and cleaning, you can expect less strain on the internal components of the dryer.

If there is a clog in your dryer vent, the heating element may have to work overtime to dry your clothes. Due to this overuse, your clothes dryer may burn out sooner than later, leaving you to replace the entire unit. If you want to save yourself some money while keeping a safe home, consider an annual cleaning service for your dryer and the vent!
