Is Dryer Vent Cleaning Really Necessary In SW Florida?

Does your dryer duct system look like the one featured above?

If any of the below-bulleted points apply to you:

  • If your clothes dryer is taking too long or requires more than one cycle to dry your clothes
  • If your laundry room feels humid during the drying cycle
  • If your clothes are exceptionally hot to the touch when removed from the dryer
  • If your clothes dryer is displaying an airflow error code
  • If your laundry room has lint deposits throughout

You may need a dryer duct inspection and cleaning.

Many people assume their clothes dryer is the problem when any of the above instances occur, but the dryer venting may be dirty, disconnected, or clogged!

Did you know? That over 5,000 structure fires are reported every year and clogged dryer vents cause 80% of these?

A clogged vent will increase your electric bill since your dryer will need to run longer to get your clothes dry. A lint-clogged dryer vent can often consume $10-$20 worth of extra electricity every month.

Because your dryer is working harder, it will decrease its lifespan.

Dryers and their venting need ongoing maintenance to keep them in safe and proper working condition.

As your clothes tumble in the warm air, fibers detach from the fabric creating lint. Most of it gets filtered in the lint screen.  However, some of the lint gets past the lint screen, getting trapped in your dryer, your exhaust vent, and sometimes blowing lint outside your home.
