The ability to do laundry safely in your home is of the utmost importance. You may not realize this, but if your dryer vent hasn’t been cleaned in years, you could be cleaning your laundry and facing risk of a house fire as well. At Heart of Texas Chem-Dry we provide our valued customers with dryer vent cleaning to keep their dryer in excellent condition and allow our customers to safely clean their laundry without worrying about a house fire!
Importance of Cleaning of Dryer Vents
Your clothes dryer uses a dryer vent to get rid of hot air and moisture that is used to effectively dry your clothes after washing them. They need to have a venting system, or a dryer vent, installed in the home to do this effectively. These vents can become blocked by lint and other debris over time. If you have a gas dryer, this vent being blocked can result in carbon monoxide poisoning as this gas starts to build up in the home. Without the ability to vent this heat, it can become a real fire risk if left untouched.
Signs You Need to Clean Dryer Vent
Heart of Texas Chem-Dry would like to share some signs that indicate it is time to have your dryer vent cleaned by our professionals:
– Clothes are still wet after running a full drying cycle.
– Clothes are excessively hot after running a normal drying cycle.
– Your dryer feels hot to the touch.
– Your lint trap is full of a larger amount of lint after one load than it normally would be.
– Your dryer vent has never been cleaned.
