Most homeowners understand basic dyer care, like remembering to clean out the lint trap. As a fire hazard, this step is especially crucial in the many close-quarters neighborhoods of Baltimore, Maryland. But did you know you should also have your dryer vent professionally cleaned? Here are a few reasons why.

Reduced Fire Risk

The obvious benefit of having a professional dryer vent cleaning is to reduce your fire risk. Lint is an extremely flammable substance, and an estimated 15,000 houses burn down each year because of it. While cleaning the dryer trap yourself is a good start, it’s no substitute for a deep professional cleaning.

Fewer Repairs

Clogged dryer vents put a lot of wear and tear on the appliance, leading to a higher risk of a breakdown. Dryers aren’t cheap, so most residents end up calling a repair technician to fix the problem. Over time, these repairs start to add up, costing more than a professional cleaning or even a new dryer. If you find yourself calling for a dryer repair a second time, you should ask your HVAC specialist about a vent cleaning.

Shorter Drying Times

A dryer that’s clogged with lint takes more time to dry clothes. That’s because lint buildup makes it difficult for the humid air to escape, allowing moisture to persist. By having your dryer vents professionally cleaned, you can shorten drying times and spend less time waiting on those clean clothes.

Lower Energy Bills

When your dryer takes longer to dry clothes due to a lint clog, it ends up using more energy. Naturally, this means spending more money on utilities. Having your dryer vents regularly maintained meaning higher energy efficiency, lower energy bills, and less money spent just to dry your clothes.

With so many benefits associated with a professional dryer vent cleaning, why wouldn’t you enlist the help of Griffith Energy Services? Call us at 888-474-3391 to schedule your dryer vent cleaning. You can sleep easier knowing your home is safe and your energy bills are in check.
