But did you know that smaller particles blow through the trap, ending up in the dryer vent hose? Over time, these particles can build up significantly and clog the dryer vent hose, causing the dryer to overheat and the lint to combust. Prevent dangerous fires in your home by having your dryer vent and hose cleaned by a professional.
2.) SAVINGS: A clean dryer vent will help improve the efficiency of your dryer and allow your clothing to dry faster. According to recent industry studies, an excessively clogged dryer vent may add $18-$24 to your home’s energy bill.
