Dryer Vent Cleaning: Eliminate a Fire Risk This Winter

As you peer down the long corridor of winter months ahead, you might be planning how to protect yourself and your home from the impact of the frigid temperatures. As you consider typical winter-time preventive measures, such as protecting your pipes from freezing, don’t overlook another, even larger risk to avoid. Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning can help you eliminate this risk of fire in your home through dryer vent cleaning. Let’s take a look at how dryer vent cleaning can help prevent a house fire this winter.

Prevent fire with dryer vent cleaning

How Your Dryer Vent Poses a Risk of Fire

Unfortunately, dryer lint is highly flammable. When it builds up inside your dryer, it reduces the airflow and causes hot air to back up into your already hot dryer. This dangerous combination can lead to a dryer fire, contributing to the approximately 3000 such fires that occur annually across the United States. Aside from the millions of dollars in property damage these fires cause, they also lead to injuries and even deaths. Don’t become a statistic and fall victim to a dryer fire.

Why You Should Clean Your Vent Now

Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning recommends you get your dryer vent professionally cleaned yearly as part of your routine home maintenance. This is an optimal time of the year for this task since homeowners use dryers more in the winter when the air is drier. The dry air and frequent use of your dryer can create a combustible combination if you aren’t careful. We guarantee to remove all of the lint from your dryer when we clean your vent, or else you do not have to pay for the service.
