We recommended that you...
Clean and Inspect your Dryer Vent every year and,
Have it Professionally Cleaned every Two to Five years.
If you are unsure when was the last time your Dryer Vent was cleaned, or you would like to book an appointment, give us a call.
Modern Dryers, even old ones are equipped with a lot of Safety Measures.
But occasionally the Sensors can fail, and if your Appliance and Dryer Vent are excessively Dirty or Clogged, these conditions could possibly lead to a Fire.
Obviously when it comes to Dryer Vent Safety, the first thing that comes to mind is the threat of a possible Fire hazard.
But statistically speaking, Water is the larger threat of the two.
Your Dryer Vent can become clogged or restricted for many reasons, and your Dryer has several safety sensors to prevent fire.
But there is absolutely nothing preventing all of that Hot Moist Air from condensing back into a liquid, and leaking into the Walls of your home.
If your Dryer Vent ducting is broken inside the floors, walls or ceilings of your Home, this could create an ideal environment for mould and bacteria to form.
Mould, Mildew and Bacteria can be extremely hard to remediate.
Testing the Airflow of your Dryer can potentially determine if the Vent has become clogged, damaged or disconnected.
Cleaning and Maintaining your Appliance and Dryer Vent not only boosts performance...
It also reduces wear and tear on the Machine, and can significantly increase the life-cycle of your Dryer.
The Average lifespan for a Clothes Dryer is approximately 8 - 10 years.
In our many years, we have seen countless 'antiques' that have been well maintained, and are running just as smoothly today, as the Day they were built.
