Do I Need Dryer Vent Cleaning?

Absolutely, yes. It comes as a surprise for some homeowners to hear, but your dryer vent really does have to be cleaned by a qualified professional. There are many ways in which a clogged up dryer vent can adversely affect you, but the most obvious dilemma is the fact that an accumulation of lint in your dryer vent is a very serious fire hazard. After all, the hot air that you use to dry your clothing is being passed through this vent. It’s not hard to see that this can be a serious issue if there is a bunch of dried out lint in there. 

Now you are not going to need to have your dryer vent cleaned out on a weekly or even a monthly basis. However, there are plenty of warning signs that you should be aware of. Remember: emptying your lint trap is not enough. Your dryer vent may be longer and more complex than you realize. Scheduling your dryer vent cleaning in Fresno, CA with us guarantees that the job is done right.
