Far too many Canadian lives are taken by home fires each year. The sources of many of these fires are something that you rarely think about – dryer vents. That’s why Dryer Vent Cleaning Today are so passionate our services in Vaughan.
There are a variety of problems that stem from poor dryer vent maintenance that you may not be aware of. The risk of fire is news to some homeowners. Even less commonly known, clogged vents can cause dryer breakdown and premature failure. Oftentimes dryer vent clogs are from birds nests or other infestations, causing personal health concerns.
The symptoms of all of this are increased energy and repair bills, longer dry times, and a burnt smell in the air.
There are many signs that there is an issue with your dryer vents. Newer appliances have the ability to display error codes that indicate a clog. Older machines won’t warn you directly, but you can tell there is a problem when clothes are still wet after a full cycle, there is more lint leftover in the lint trap, or the appliance begins to omit a burnt smell.
Professional dryer vent cleaning services will address this, but if you have to make service calls on a regular basis there could be a deeper problem. In this case you should inspect the entire system to find the root cause.
In some cases the vent leading outside is damaged. In other cases, vent connectors are leaking or a hole in the vent causes air to leak out before it can blow remnants outside. In most cases, vents are simply routed improperly, forcing air to travel farther than it ought to or causing kinks in the vent.
As always, preventative maintenance is far better than cleaning up (and paying for) a major incident.
