Dryer Vent Lint
Removal Service

    Dryer vent cleaning is not something that most of us pay a lot of attention to.  In fact, most people rarely can say that they have ever had their dyer vent cleaned. Clogged dryer vent can be the reason your clothes are not dry after a drying cycle, have a strange odor or the top of your dryer is unusually hot while working. There can be many negative consequence of clogged vents, but the major source of the problem is usualy lint.
Why Clean?
- decrease fire hazard
- extend dryer life
- increase overall energey efficiency which means extra money in your pocket!
Your dryer's lint trap catches about 60% of the lint produced during any given drying cycle.  The other 40% passes beyond the filter and into the vent system.  Over time, that lint builds up.
Lint build up can lead to fires. In addition, lint accumulation decreases energy efficiency and can increase your bill by 70 - 90 cents per cycle.
* Dryer Vent Cleaning is recommended annually; 2 times per year for customers who use their dryer more frequently.
Report: NFPA's "Home Fires Involving Clothes Dryers and Washing Machines"
Author: John R. Hall, Jr.
Issued: September 2012
This report is an overview of home structure fires involving clothes dryers and washing machines and includes statistics by factor contributing to ignition, item first ignited and area of origin.
Executive Summary
In 2010, an estimated 16,800 reported U.S. non-confined or confined home structure fires involving clothes dryers or washing machines (including combination washer/dryers) resulted in 51 civilian deaths, 380 civilian injuries, and $236 million in direct property damage.
Washer and dryer fires were mostly level from 1980 to 1998, with only a slight decline in the first years of the period to break the pattern. After some volatility during the transition years as NFIRS Version 5.0 was introduced, the estimates have settled into a new trend with wider year-to-year variations and a trend line slightly lower than the lowest levels of 1980-1998. Civilian injuries have stabilized in a range comparable to that seen in the 1990s. Direct property damage after adjustment for inflation is varying year to year but around a generally higher average then those seen prior to 1999.
In 2010, clothes dryers and washing machines accounted for 4.5% of all reported home structure fires, 1.9% of associated civilian deaths, 2.8% of associated civilian injuries, and 3.1% of associated direct property damage
