At Firehouse Dryer Duct Cleaning we also clean your dryer’s casing and roof-top vent to improve air-flow.
We can also set you up with annual reminders to help keep your home safe.
Being Proactive is the Key!
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that 15,500 fires associated with clothes dryers occur annually. These fires account for an average of 10 deaths and 310 injuries and more than $100 million in property damage annually.
These fires can be prevented by having your clothes dryer duct cleaned annually. Clothes dryers are one of the most costly appliances in your home to operate. The longer it runs, the more money it costs you. If your clothes dryer is taking longer than normal to dry, you need to have your dryer duct professionally cleaned.
Ways to tell if your dryer duct needs to be cleaned are:
- Clothes take longer and longer to dry,
- Clothes don't fully dry,
- Clothes are hotter than normal at the end of the drying cycle,
- The outside of dryer gets very hot,
- The outside exhaust vent flapper does not open very much indicating low exhaust velocity,
- Laundry room becomes more humid than it is usually,
- Burnt smell is evident in the laundry room
