Dryer Vent Cleaning Prolongs the Life of Your Clothes Dryer

All major appliances require some regular maintenance in order to operate efficiently. Failure to properly maintain appliances increases their chances of breaking down, or causes them to labor or work harder to perform their task. This leads to increased energy bills and a chance of an appliance repair or replacement bill. When dryer vent cleaning and maintenance is neglected, there is yet another danger; a clothes dryer fire.

Here are some items you should know about clothes dryers and dryer vent systems:

• The lint trap should be pulled and cleaned after each load of laundry
• Residue can build up on the lint screen over time; it should be washed with soap and water about once a month
• Avoid putting rags soaked with oil, gasoline or other combustible substances into the dryer, even if they have been washed
• All flammable materials and liquids should be stored well away from the clothes dryer
• Order professional dryer vent cleaning and maintenance at least once a year
• Have your dryer duct and vent system inspected to be sure it is up to UL Safety Standards
• Do not use vinyl or plastic material for your dryer ducts; use only semi-rigid or solid metal
• Keep the outside vent clean and check it often for blockage, damage or freezing

Proper maintenance of your dryer vent system will keep you safe from a fire, save money on energy bills, and reduce the risk of appliance malfunction or break-down. The small service fee for a dryer vent cleaning, dryer vent repair, and inspection is little compared to the savings it offers in preventing a fire and prolonging the life of your dryer.

Mory Matias operates Dryer Vent Wizard of Northshore Chicago

Mory Matias, who used to work in product development, is now dedicated to helping his local community prevent easily avoidable dryer fires. He is committed to providing a quality service for home and business owners that will help them achieve tangible safety and savings through regular dryer vent maintenance.

According to Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard of Northshore Chicago, most consumers are unaware that annual dryer and dryer vent maintenance is required to keep the dryer running properly and to prevent dryer fires. Additionally, annual maintenance can save energy and associated costs.

When a consumer finds their dryer taking multiple cycles to dry clothes or if it keeps stopping during a cycle, the cause could be lint accumulation in the vent line, causing the dryer to work inefficiently or not at all. Annual maintenance can mean lower energy bills, since the result is the dryer not having to work so long and hard to dry clothes. In addition, clothes don’t wear out as quickly when they don’t have to go through multiple cycles.

While cleaning a dryer vent may seem like a very simple and sensible thing to do, the fact of the matter is, many people just don’t do it. Time is a precious commodity for most people today. Busy households have an urgent need to get their dryers up and running safely and efficiently. This is why they call Dryer Vent Wizard to help them obtain a quick solution to their dryer vent problems.
