Most dryer repairs could easily have been prevented by an annual dryer duct cleaning.Some of the calls we get,dryer will not turn on,it takes longer for my clothes to dry,my clothes are still damp.A lot of the time a restricted or clogged dryer vent is the culprit and cleaning the vent corrects the problem. If your dryer is heating and the drum is spinning but noticed that it’s taking longer than it should to dry your clothes, then you are overdue to have your dryer venting cleaned.

Keeping your dryer vent clean and well maintained is important for the performance and the working life of your dryer, it also significantly reduces the energy costs of operating your dryer.
Although important, SAFETY -IS THE REAL ISSUE!
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are an estimated annual 16,000 fires, 10 deaths and 10 injuries due to clothes dryer fires. Several hundred people a year are also affected by carbon monoxide poisoning from improper dryer vent installation..
The costs come to nearly $100 million per year. Some official estimates put the amount at $200 million annually. In some cases faulty appliances are to blame, but many fires can be prevented with proper dryer maintenance.A clothes dryer works by forcing hot air through a turning drum.Wet clothes placed in the drum are then dried by moving hot air. It is possible for a full load of wet clothes to contain as much as one and a half gallons of water. Lint, consisting mostly of small fibers from the clothes and debris in or on the clothes, is created from the clothes as the clothes tumble in the drum. While much of the lint is trapped by the dryer’s filter, lint is also carried through the vent system along with moist air. Lint is a highly combustible material that can accumulate both in the dryer and in the dryer vent which will reduce airflow and can be the cause of a potential fire hazard.
