Certified Dryer Vent Cleaning Services For Columbia, Jefferson City, And Surrounding Central Missouri

It’s extremely important to keep up with the proper maintenance of your fireplace, stove, and chimney, and most of us find that pretty easy to remember. But it’s just as important to properly maintain your dryer vents.

Your dryer is producing considerable heat, and your vent is ushering that hot air away from the appliance, bringing lint, debris, and other particles along with it. Lint can build up — often considerably — over time, as you use the dryer. That buildup can restrict the air flow in the vent itself, making the dryer work harder and at higher heats. Lint, as you can imagine, is highly flammable. High heat added to the highly-flammable material: not a good situation.

The U.S. Fire Administration recently released findings of clothes dryer-related fires in residential buildings from 2008 to 2010. Over that time, roughly 2,900 clothes dryer fires occurred each year in American homes, causing millions of dollars in property loss, and, more frighteningly, many injuries and deaths. That same study notes failure to clean as the leading contributing factor to these fires.

Having your dryer vent properly cleaned significantly minimizes the possibility of fire, and allows you to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re being proactive about home safety.

Not Only Is A Clogged Dryer Vent Unsafe — It’s Forcing You To Waste Money

Have you noticed that your clothes aren’t dry after you run a load of laundry? That doesn’t necessarily mean your dryer isn’t working correctly. A clogged or restricted dryer vent may not be allowing adequate air flow, limiting your dryer’s ability to actually dry your clothes. You’d be surprised how many times we clean a dryer vent and find dryers working twice as well. If you’re thinking your dryer might be on its last leg, give Advanced Chimney Techniques a call before you replace it, and let us check your dryer vents — we may be able to save you from making an expensive purchase that you don’t need to make.
