You toss your wet clothes into the dryer, set the time, and turn it on. If you remember, you also pull the lint trap and clean that out. But is that really enough? Have you taken a look at your dryer vent lately? Do you know what sorts of things are trapped in your dryer vent? Odds are that your dryer vent looks worse than your lint trap on your dryer, and that just means that you have a fire hazard in your Elizabethtown, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Mechanicsburg, Reading, York, or surrounding area home. What can you do? Call the team from Zach-Vac Air Duct Cleaning. They have the equipment to perform a dryer vent cleaning, making your home much safer from a fire.
What Can Happen with A Clogged Dryer Vent
Despite cleaning the lint screen after every load, you’d be SURPRISED at what ends up in your dryer ducting. This is a phrase that is often repeated to clients before we clean out their dryer vents. The build-up of lint and debris can get trapped in your dryer vents and cause your dryer to consume more energy and/or stop working altogether. While these repercussions of lint build-up can be a costly annoyance, the most prominent risk is fire.
There are some telltale signs that you should have your dryer vent cleaned out by the professionals from Zach-Vac Air Duct Cleaning. One of the most obvious signs is if you smell a burning scent from your dryer when you run it. Stop your dryer immediately and call Zach-Vac Air Duct Cleaning right away to have them come out to clean out your dryer vent. Another sign is if your clothes are not dry after running for a complete cycle. The air that you are sending out of the dryer isn’t able to escape in a timely manner, causing your clothes to not be dry during a normal dry cycle. If you notice heavy moisture or condensation in your dryer after a load is complete, this could be another indication of a clogged dryer vent. And if you notice any buildup of lint behind the dryer or on the vent outside of your home, that could indicate that you have a clogged dryer vent.
