A simple thing as a clothes dryer can be the underlying cause behind extensive property damages. Clothes dryers can often cause fires, and they can prove to be fatal as well. Perhaps a more shocking fact is that this extensive damage can be prevented by something as simple as the problem itself: regular cleaning and maintenance. At Green Restoration, we make sure that your system isn’t clogged and will help you maintain smooth and effortless operation.
Dryer vents can accumulate lint and other debris as they work, causing them to become jammed. This jamming can eventually lead to fires. Dryer vents causing fires is only one side of the coin. Not cleaning the vent can also lead to carbon monoxide accumulation, which can lead to monoxide poisoning.
The lint trap in dryers only catches around 25% of the lint, and the rest of it finds its way into the vent system. As the lint builds up in there, the airflow starts to get restricted, and the dryer has to work harder and harder to get the expected results. This results in excessive heat production and can also inflate your electricity bills.
Hiring a professional service to manage dryer vent cleaning is the best option. This is particularly true because your dryer vents can also become clogged due to inappropriate ducting. If the ducting has an excessive amount of bends than are normally suggested, they can become a reason for clogging as lint gets deposited at those bends and can restrict airflow.
