Is your dryer slower and noisier than usual? Perhaps it’s time to have your dryer vents cleaned. Watch out for the signs!

The first time you use something it should be at its best condition and functioning at maximum efficiency. This is true for all appliances and the dryer is one of them. When it was brand new, all you had to do was wait a couple of minutes and it would do its job in a jiffy.

However, also like other appliances, regular use also means regular maintenance. If you start to notice weird sounds during the spin cycles and it takes a longer time to dry or cannot even completely dry your clothes, your dryer vents could desperately be in need of attention. Magic Sweep Corporation will tell you what you can do to prevent this from happening and the things you can do to prolong your dryer’s life.

Dryer Problems

Every time you use your dryer, lint can enter and accumulate in the vents. Mold, dirt and rust could catch onto the lint and lead to further problems for the dryer which makes the spinning process longer and the actual drying process not happen at all. Very soon it can begin a domino effect and ultimately affect the dryer’s performance.

Did you know that there is such a thing as dryer fires? Yes, the equivalent of creosote in the chimney is lint in the dryer vent. Lint is also very flammable. In fact, there have been more house fires caused by clogged dryer vents than those started in the chimney. This is really scary especially if you have kids or old people at home. As a precaution, make sure you have a fire safety plan in case there is fire inside the home, but it would really be best if you could avoid it altogether.

The ONLY Solution

Eventually, your dryer will get destroyed if you don’t have it checked. The important thing to note here is to make sure you have your dryer vent cleaned by our CSIA-certified professionals who have undergone rigorous trainings, seminars and tests just so we can give you our very best in work ethic and performance. Once there is regular cleaning and inspection of your dryer vents there should be no doubt in any homeowner’s mind that the result is a fully-functional, effective, fast-drying dryer.
