Clothes dryer fires are now the most common cause of home fires in the U.S., surpassing chimney fires. Clothes Uniqairz Air Duct LLC vents are one of those things you can’t see and can’t ignore. When you consider that a dryer’s lint trap (even a new one) only removes or stops 80% of the lint, you realize how important it is to clean the vent system once a year .
Dryer lint is highly flammable and, under the right conditions, can cause a dryer fire that often spreads through the exhaust system, which in turn causes the fire to spread rapidly throughout the home. When a dryer is working, about half a pound of water is removed, the lint is caught in the lint trap, and the air is forced through the dryer exhaust system. Over time, this excess lint builds up in your dryer and in the exhaust or vent system. Airflow is restricted, the dryer works harder and the motor overheats. As excess lint builds up, your dryer is now a ripe candidate for a dryer fire.

Why should you clean your dryer vent?
It may seem like an insignificant task, but when you look at why dryer vent cleaning is necessary, you may immediately think about doing it if you haven’t done it in a while.
Prevent the fire hazard
The biggest danger of a clogged dryer vent is that it can cause fires in the surrounding area. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that clogged dryer vents cause more than 15000 fires in the U.S. each year. The lint that accumulates in an unmonitored dryer vent causes a reduction in airflow in the duct, leading to fires.
The U.S. Fire Administration also blames accumulated lint as a major cause of fires in clothes dryers. People often fail to recognize or ignore the signs of a clogged dryer vent, and this slight lack of awareness can have disastrous consequences. They can mean the loss of life or property. The best way to avoid such drastic consequences is to have your machines and vents serviced annually by Uniqairz air duct cleaners or depending on how you use your machines.
Uniqairz air duct cleaners recommend cleaning your dryer vent annually to ensure the safety and efficiency of your dryer. However, if your dryer is used more frequently, cleaning may be required more often than once a year.
Time is valuable – save it with Uniqairz vent cleaners.
A clogged vent will take longer to dry your clothes, and this time period will increase over time if you don’t clean the vent. This delay can get to the point where you need an extra pass to dry your laundry, costing you extra money and, more importantly, extra time. So, have your dryer vent cleaned by Uniqairz air duct cleaners to save the time you spend on repeated drying cycles.
Enjoy maximum efficiency from your appliance
Once you’ve invested in a good clothes dryer, you deserve the maximum efficiency from your appliance, which is only possible with regular appliance maintenance and cleaning. Over time, the accumulation of lint and debris clogs the vents and reduces the efficiency of the dryer. The extra time spent drying clothes is especially annoying when you have a busy schedule, and it also causes your clothes to weather too soon. To prolong the life of your clothes and dryer while maximizing the efficiency of your dryer, have Uniqairz clean your dryer vent regularly.
If your dryer vent is located in the walls of your home, on the subfloor or in the foundation, you need to keep an eye on it and take extra care to prevent lint from accumulating in the pipe. This forces the dryer to work harder, which heats up the lint and increases the risk of fire.
