Why You Should Clean Your Dryer Vents
Kieth is here to talk about the safety and reasons of why you would need to clean your vents.
We all know to clean out the lint trap, but you might not know why or how to clean the vents and the surface around the lint traps. A common sign that venting needs to be cleaned is that it takes a little longer to dry your clothes.
We hear about dryer fires, but in reality it's not the machines malfunctioning, it's the lint inside the vents that catch on fire. Lint is very flammable and when hot air passes a clogged vent, that's when it starts fire. This can be prevented by cleaning your vents and dryers one a year.
We recommend that a professional comes out and clean your vents and dryers for you. If you are not careful, you could damage the machine or vents. We reccomend contacting Brand Source Service.
