Dryer Vent Cleaning

Proper maintenance is necessary when it comes to any major home appliance, but dryer vent cleaning may be the most important. Clogged ducts can lead to all sorts of problems ranging from slightly inconvenient to flat-out dangerous, so it’s best not to wait until you notice that your dryer isn’t functioning as it should.

The thing is, we know that you don’t want to spend time removing lint from your dryer ducts. That’s why GFY Appliance Repair offers fast, affordable vent cleaning to make your life easier. But why is it so important to keep them clean?

What Makes Dryer Vent Cleaning So Important?

It may not seem like a big deal, but anyone who’s dealt with a dryer fire knows why keeping up with vent maintenance is so crucial. And that’s not to mention the time and money wasted running a dryer that’s inefficient. Call GFY Appliance Service today to avoid these potential problems.
It’s inevitable that over time, your dryer’s exhaust vents will become clogged with debris like lint, hair, and dust. Yes, it’s gross, but it can also be extremely dangerous. The leading cause of home dryer fires is a lack of dryer vent cleaning. Clogged vents restrict airflow which forces the dryer to work harder to stay hot inside. This can eventually cause the lint trapped inside to ignite, causing nearly 3,000 house fires each year. Don’t be a statistic! Get your vents serviced regularly by the professionals at GFY.
Even if your dryer looks great and runs perfectly, a clogged vent can decrease airflow and drying efficiency. When air can’t flow freely, it starts to take longer and longer to fully dry a load. That means you’ll have to run more cycles, which will quickly add to your monthly utility bills. Save some cash and prevent an even worse issue by having your vents cleaned today.
The strain caused by restricted airflow can damage other components in your dryer leading to an eventual breakdown. Maximize the longevity of your dryer by having the vents serviced regularly.

Tip for Pet Owners

If you have a four-legged family member in your home, the likelihood that you need dryer vent cleaning is much higher than in homes without pets.

Laundry carries pet hair with it that becomes tangled with lint inside dryer vents, creating clogs much faster than normal. Don’t risk their safety or your own, and have your vents cleaned by the friendly experts at GFY Appliance Repair.
