HOW DO FIRES OCCUR FROM DIRTY OR CLOGGED DRYER VENT SYSTEMS?
When the piping or the vent hood naturally become excessively dirty or clogged; this reduces, restricts, or completely shuts-off the proper airflow to allow your dryer to function properly. If the vent system becomes restricted, the heat builds up and then ignites the lint, which causes the fire. Unfortunately, the lint is perfect for starting a fire.

ARE YOUR CLOTHES TAKING TOO LONG TO DRY?
Most of our service calls are due to complaints of clothes taking way too long to dry. Sometimes it will take two or more drying cycles. Typically, it is not the dryer itself, but the lint restricting the airflow. Your clothes dryer needs to “breathe” in order to perform properly. If the lint is causing an airflow deficiency or restriction, this really puts a strain on the dryer itself. Thus, leading to either a service call, a costly appliance repair, or a failed dryer component(s). This obviously and needlessly is costing you more money to operate the dryer every single load. Our dryer vent cleaning service will pay for itself in a short amount of time by reducing the drying cycle and lowering your utility costs. This is just one of the reasons why it is recommended by the dryer manufacturers to have it cleaned on an annual basis. Most people feel it is better to be proactive, instead of reactive, wouldn’t you agree?
