According to the U.S. Fire Administration, dryer fires cause an estimated 100 injuries and $35 million in property loss each year. What’s the number one cause of dryer fires? Failure to clean the dryer vent. Lint, which is highly combustible, builds up in the dryer vent after each use and reduces the airflow. That, combined with dryer heat, creates the perfect environment for a fire.
As experts in home air systems, we at Chud understand not only how important it is for regular dryer cleanings, but also what a thorough dryer vent cleaning entails. We use a flexible compressed-air jet snake tool to clear the vent gently, but effectively, and we collect any lint cleared from the vent. With a clean dryer vent, you’ll reduce the chance of fire, reduce energy bills, increase the lifespan of your dryer, experience quicker drying times and better indoor air quality.
