Causes of Clogged Dryer Vents
The clothes drying process usually results into the accumulation of lint in the ventilation system thus causing a blockage. There are a number of ways dryer vents clog, some of which are contributed by the following:
The lengthy distance of the dryer ventilation system which increases chances of curves and bends in the system which then acts as collection points for lint.
The dryer vent tubes are usually made from foil or pliable plastic which can easily be dented or crashed in the face of pressure.
Poorly connected ventilation systems or dryer vent screens can trap lint. Ventilation screens usually serve to prevent animals from accessing the ventilation system but in most cases, these screens also act as barriers for lint.
Why Clean Your Dryer Vent
There are lots of reasons why homeowners need to be worried about dirty vents and where possible have them cleaned. Our team at Air Conditioning Miami has the tools and equipment necessary to have your dryer vents clear and lint free. Among the reasons you should give us a call to clean your vents include:
Safety Concerns – When lint builds up in your vent, it blocks air flow from the dryer to the external vent thus creating enormous levels of heat which can potentially cause a fire.
Energy Efficiency and Savings – A dryer vent that is clogged can have a negative impact on your energy efficiency at home. This is in addition to the lifespan of your dryer vent which suffers a blow as a result of prolonged strained operations. Clearing your dryer vent ensures that your clothes do not get damaged and your dryer serves you for long.
Indoor Air Quality – This is a critical factor when considering your respiratory health. If not allowed to ventilate properly, a clogged dryer vent can negatively impact the quality of your indoor air. Cases of carbon monoxide being released into the indoor environment are rampant with clogged dryer vent systems.
