The Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning

Ah, there’s nothing better than a fresh pile of laundry! From the washing machine to the dryer, no step goes overlooked when it comes to cleaning your clothing...but what may go overlooked is cleaning the dryer itself. Sure, this essential machine is sturdy and can tackle any load of laundry — but have you ever cleaned the dryer vents? If not, here’s why you should schedule a professional dryer vent cleaning with Cousin's Air, Inc. today:

Fire Safety

When lint is backed up in a dryer vent, there is a higher chance that a fire could start because of it. Think of lint particles as pieces of paper that are set next to an open flame. As the “pieces of paper” begin to pile up, there’s a more significant chance that they will cause an actual fire. Of course, fire isn’t used in a clothes dryer — but when lint begins to obstruct the vent opening, then it could become a serious problem.

If you’re looking to not only extend your dryer’s lifespan, but save your home from devastation, it’s best to check your machine for lint after each use. While the “dryer debris” won’t build up instantly, sometimes the lint particles go overlooked for a few months — which can even be overlooked for a few years. The minute you do notice that lint is building up, clean it out immediately. This precaution will prevent it from traveling into the vent in clumps, causing a blockage.

Health Benefits

Feel as if you’re coughing and sneezing more than usual? If that’s the case, it might all be caused by an obstructed dryer vent. Since lint is built up in this essential machine, it also has the power to harvest unwanted debris that can cling onto your clothes — and lungs. Of course, the only solution to get rid of these allergens is to have your dryer vent cleaned!

When you opt for a professional dryer vent cleaning from Cousin's Air, Inc., not only will we give you top-of-the-line quality service, but you’ll also have peace of mind knowing that your dryer vent will be as clean as new! Instantly, you’ll notice the vast difference a vent cleaning will make in your life!

Plus, once you remove your clothes from the dryer, they’ll smell so much cleaner and won’t be filled with allergens and that dreaded “musty dryer” smell.

Energy Savings

While looking at your monthly energy bill, you suddenly notice that the average balance has skyrocketed higher than before. When narrowing down the possibilities, did you ever factor in your dryer? Sure, it might not seem like it’s using an abundance of power, but when the dryer vent is overdue for a cleaning, you’d be surprised at how much energy this machine can use (and waste).

Think of a clogged dryer vent like veins in the human body. When they’re clogged, the heart has to work twice as hard to pump blood through them — and the same concept applies to your dryer. A clogged vent will not only use more energy, but it will increase your drying time since the machine will have to use an excessive amount of wasteful force to get the job done.

Preserves Clothing

Think about it: when your dryer has to work twice as hard to dry your clothing, it will end up destroying them — even on the lowest of settings. Sure, specific garments are manufactured to withstand the elements, but an overworked dryer could undoubtedly damage those items.

When the dryer vent is cleared of lint and debris, it will not only work much better (as a whole), but it will keep the fibers of your clothing from deteriorating. The more heat your clothes are exposed to, the more likely they are to tear and fade. Certainly, when you opt for a professional clean from Cousin's Air, Inc., we'll restore your dryer to its former glory, giving you a stress-free drying experience.
