Dryer Vent Cleaning

Symptoms of poor dryer venting due to lint and debris build-up:
*Does your dryer take forever to dry?
*Is your dryer getting too hot?
*Do you have high utility bills?
*Is lint build-up around and behind your dryer?
*Is there visible lint at your vent exit?

Dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer.  As dryers become filled with lint and other debris, drying time increase and can cause the dryer itself to overheat.  This increases energy consumption since the dryer has to run longer to dry your clothes and can also cause fires in the dryer or the dryer duct.  The Consume Produce Safety Commission reports dryer related home fires are on the increase.  CPSC figures show that in 1997 there were 16,800 dryer fires which caused 30 deaths, 430 injuries, and 97.3 million dollars in property damage.
