Dryer Vent Cleaning reduces the risk of a fire in your home or business

by Dirti Ducts • March 22, 2019

Lint build up in dryer ventCleaning the lint from the dryer’s filter screen after every load is just one piece to the puzzle when it comes to preventing a fire in your home. Having your dryer vent pipe professionally cleaned annually will further avert the possibility of the devastating effects of a house fire.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, dryer vent fires are the third most common cause of house fires in the United States. 
  • Per year 15,600 house fires are caused by Dryer Vents
  • Dryer vent fires cause approximately 15 deaths and 400 injuries per year
  • Fires from dryer vents cost around 99 million dollars in property damage per year
To reduce the risk of fire, according to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Homeland Security as well as the United States Fire Administration, dryer vents should be cleaned at least once per year.

A dirty dryer vent is costing you money

Is it taking longer and longer to dry your clothes? If you answered yes, that could be a sign that your dryer vent pipe needs attention.

In addition to the risk of a fire, a dryer vent filled with lint, pet hair and fiber can cost an additional $18 to 24 dollars per month in electricity.

Benefits of dryer vent cleaning

  • Carbon Monoxide & your home

    Gas dryers operating with little or no airflow to the outside exhaust will cause Carbon Monoxide to back up into your home. Carbon Monoxide poisoning is very harmful and can result in serious sickness and even death
  • Extends the life of your dryer

    The harder your dryer has to work the more likely it is to wear down the internal components, therefore, diminishing the number of uses you have before your dryer gives up!
  • An efficient dryer is a happy dryer

    A clean dryer vent allows the air to move freely from your dryer to the vent outside your house, therefore, reducing the resistance and minimizing the gas or electric energy your dryer uses to operate. Build up lint increases the resistance making your dryer work harder
Peace of mind is everything!
  • Having your dryer vents cleaned by a professional will provide you with a peace of mind knowing that you have reduced the risk of a house fire.

    In addition your dryer will be allowed to work optimally, increasing its life expectancy, more importantly, you have reduced the risk of potentially dangerous Carbon Monoxide fumes in your home!

  • Clothes removed from the dryer are noticeably hot

I have had Nathan and the people at Dirti Ducts not only clean my personal homes duct work after a fire, but have also used them on my clients homes after remodeling. This is not only an allergy and dust issue, but also a safety issue as dryer vent fires are leading cause of house fires. They are professional, arrive on time, and are very friendly. I highly recommend them to my friends and clients.

I just purchased a new home. I know nothing of ducts, but since we purchased from a family member and didn’t need a full inspection, we were urged to have our ducts cleaned. Dirti Ducts showed us a fire hazard that was right under our nose that we didn’t even realize was there! They were quick, friendly, and I will absolutely return to Dirti Ducts for maintenance and inspections.
