Dryer Vents – Cleaning
Many homeowners are unaware of the dangers of dryer vent fires. However, every year in the U.S. there are estimated to be 15,500 fires due to clogged dryer vents, and 10 deaths and 10 injuries associated with these fires. Episodes of carbon monoxide poisoning are also attributed to faulty dryer vent installation or lack of maintenance. Not only are these events deleterious to health, they often cost thousands of dollars to repair. It’s easy to see why regular and thorough dryer vent cleaning is so important. Irish Sweep provides detailed and professional dryer vent cleaning in the Bay Area to remove all traces of lint within your vent system.
Even with stringent attention to lint removal at the dryer opening level, lint can still pass through the filter screen and into the vents over time. In many homes, the dryer vent system can be long requiring the dryer to work harder to push exhaust out of the vent. Increases in vent length also provide more space for lint to buildup. Lint is highly flammable, and in combination with the hot air from your dryer, can lead to the potential for very damaging fires.
Irish Sweep’s dryer vent cleaning can get deep into your vent system where most household cleaning methods can’t reach. The professional tools and techniques used by Irish Sweep help to extract a greater volume of lint and remove it more completely. In most cases, Irish Sweep can completely remove the lint from your dryer vents, to create a safer and more effective system. In cases of sever buildup, a dryer repair company may also need to be brought in to disassemble the dryer and access the interior dryer surfaces that collect lint.
Maintain the optimum performance of your dryer and secure your peace of mind with professional Bay Area dryer vent cleaning offered by Irish Sweep.
