DRYER DUCT CLEANING
Laundry is a part of life's daily grind but did you know that dryers cause over 15,000 house fires, 400 injuries, 30 deaths, and $200 million in property damage each year?
Dryer vent inspections and cleanings:
Lint that collects in your vents is extremely combustible. Over time, your dryer vent can fill with that lint that gets passed the dryer's filter. As the lint builds up, this can cause over-heating which directly causes house fires.
Improper installation of your dryer vent system can also create a serious hazard. Improperly routed, damaged, or disconnected vents can lead to serious injury and immense property damage - things that are easily preventable with routine inspections.
Regular dryer vent cleaning should be done annually, depending on the use and complexity of your system.
