Deer Park, NY (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
During the summer months, homeowners often find the time to complete their home improvement projects. This year, make sure to add cleaning the dryer vent to the list of summer chores. GreenPro Cleaning & Restoration recommends getting it done now.
Clogged dryer vents can be costly to a home so cleaning them is extremely important for a number of reasons. According to the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a full load of wet clothes can contain up to one-and-a-half gallons of water. With the drying process:
- Moisture is removed along with tiny fibers (lint).
- Lint and other debris accumulate in dryer vent ductwork.
- Dark, moist ductwork becomes an ideal breeding ground for mold.
Cleaning the dryer vent will cleanse the dryer vent system, removing all debris that has built up over time. Cleaning the dryer vent is an often overlooked, but important step in maintaining a home or building. A good rule of thumb is to have dryer vent and air duct cleaning performed at the same time.
Cleaning the dryer vent is also significant in reducing the risk of fire to a home. According to a recent FEMA study, 28 percent of residential clothes dryer fires were caused by dust, fiber and lint. Every year, there are an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires, causing an estimated five deaths, 100 injuries and $35 million in property loss.
