Homeowners across Monmouth & Ocean counties are hunkering down for winter weather. As we spend more time indoors and gather with family for the holidays, having a safe and comfortable home is a higher priority than ever. One key piece of home safety is having a clean and clear dryer vent. Have you had yours inspected lately? Here’s why you should:

Boosting Dryer Efficiency

Are your clothes taking an unusually long time to dry? Are the clothes unusually hot when the cycle finishes? If so, you may be facing an issue with your dryer vent. Vents clogged with debris slow down the drying process, meaning you need to run the dryer longer and more often to get clothes dry. The most obvious benefit to having your vent cleaned is a boost in your dryer’s efficiency.

Improve Home Safety

Speaking of debris in your dryer vent, allowing this to build up is very dangerous. Dryer vent debris (like lint) is typically extremely flammable and is the source of thousands of house fires per year. Since the airflow is restricted by buildup, exhaust gases in the vent also build up, creating a serious fire hazard.
