THE MOST OUTSTANDING CLEANING SERVICE EXPERIENCE EVER
To prevent accidents and to ensure the safety of your family, it is important to have your dryer vent cleaned a minimum of once per year.
How much does it cost to clean a dryer vent?
A smooth running dryer vent prevents lint buildup and speeds up clothes drying. In most homes, the clothing dryer is a common appliance and is used on a regular basis.
The vent of the dryer gathers fluff, hair, and debris that accumulate when the clothing whirls around the machine. That’s why it should be emptied after each load. Unfortunately, not many people are in the habit of doing so, causing the debris to build up inside and clog the dryer vent.
Professional Residential dryer vent cleaning costs from $149 to $300.
The cost may, however, increase if you require additional services, such as mold removal, bird nest removal, severity of clogging, or if additional supplies are needed. The type of dryer vent you have and its current condition will also come into play.
Reasons To Clean Your Dryer Vent
Unfortunately, not everybody knows the importance of keeping dryer vents clean. Here are a few reasons why it should be done:
If left unserviced, the dryer vent can become a fire hazard. When lint is trapped in the dryer vent, it prevents the system from exhausting properly, causing it to overheat. There are 16,800 dryer vent fires every year according to the US Fire Administration, that can be avoided by cleaning the dryer vent.
Over time, the accumulation of lint and other debris increases energy consumption. Running your dryer vent through another cycle adds about $0.70 to your energy bill. A clogged venting system can cost the owner $18 and $24 in additional electrical supplies every month.
A clogged dryer vent can cause the appliance to run longer, increasing the wear and tear to the system, leading to more frequent repairs.
A clogged gas dryer can release harmful gases, such as carbon monoxide, affecting your respiratory health, cleaning it results in better indoor air quality.
The appliance may overheat damaging clothes and the machine itself in the process. This may also lead to increased energy bills.
Signs That You Need To Clean Your Dryer Vent
To prevent accidents and to ensure the safety of your family, it is imperative to have the dryer vent cleaned if any of the following signs shows:
The laundry room starts feeling much warmer than normal.
The dried clothing comes out of the dryer much warmer than normal.
Clothes start to come out damp after a normal cycle, causing the drying cycle to take longer.
