Dryer Vent Cleaning Fort Myers

Did you know that cleaning your dryer vents is a critical action for any homeowner? Even though this isn’t specific to air conditioning, we’ve decided to offer this service to our customers. Dryer vents that are not kept clean cause about fifteen thousand fires each year in the United States. That’s a pretty statistic.

How Does A Clogged Dryer Vent Ignite?

Lint from clothing is extremely flammable, and lent makes it through the small screen in most clothes dryers. As the lint builds up and blocks airflow from the dryer, the dryer’s operating temperature increases, and the exhaust temp of the dryer can increase by over 80%. This extremely hot air is hot enough to cause lint to ignite, and if that happens you could lose your entire home.
