Dryer Vent CleaningCongested dryer vents can lead to an appliance fire that can threaten your home or business. It’s crucial that dryer vents be cleaned regularly, for safety reasons and for economic reasons. The more efficiently a dryer vent exhausts, the less lint collects in the vents, and the better the dryer operates. This means a more energy-efficient dryer and lower utility bills.
The risk is real. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has warned that dryer vents are the most common source of house fires.
