DRYER DUCT CLEANING = FIRE PREVENTION

Dryer duct cleaning is one of the most important services we offerOne of the most important services we offer is dryer duct cleaning. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, “an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to U.S. fire departments each year.” This usually has nothing to do with the dryer, but rather everything to do with the venting. When a duct is damaged, too long, or simply clogged with old lint, new lint that is supposed to escape through the vent backs up into the dryer. Over time this can become a significant fire hazard.
