When it comes to chimney and fireplace care, customers in Cherry Hill and all of its surrounding areas know that they can depend on the crew at Mason’s Chimney Service for anything! But did you know that we handle dryer vent cleaning and maintenance, too? Scheduling annual dryer vent inspections is just as important as scheduling yearly fireplace maintenance, and we’re here to provide you with everything you need season after season!
Why Is This Important?
So, why are dryer vent cleanings necessary? Well, for one thing, clogged vents cause your dryer to function much less efficiently. Your clothes will take longer to dry, forcing you to run cycle after cycle. This tedious work wastes your day, and it will cause your monthly energy bills to rise up quickly, too. Once we clean things up, you’ll be shocked at how much better everything runs!
Yet, more importantly than heightened efficiency is the added safety and security you gain from regular cleanings. Dirty dryer vents mean the heat and toxins from your dryer cannot escape outdoors properly, which causes things to back up. If harmful gases enter your home, you and your loved ones could get very ill.
Along with this, obstructions will cause your system to overheat, which can lead to fires. It doesn’t take long for flammable lint to catch flame. Once a fire begins in your laundry room, it will spread through the rest of your home in a hurry. Thousands of dryer fires occur every year throughout the United States. Don’t take the risk – give us a call now!
Signs Of A Dirty Vent
If you think you may need dryer vent cleaning, but aren’t exactly sure what to watch out for, review these signs that clogs may be present in your system. First of all, if it’s been more than a year since your last inspection, you’ll definitely want to be on the safe side and schedule an appointment with us. Dryer vent maintenance should be part of your yearly regimine, so be sure to get a professional eye on the job as soon as possible!
Other signs include longer than normal drying times, lint accumulation in and around your dryer, excessive heat in the laundry room, and musty odors around the appliance. Also, if your clothes or the dryer itself seem exceptionally hot to the touch after a drying cycle, it will be in your best interests to get our staff in to check things over.
