Don’t Let a Dirty Dryer Vent End in Tragedy

It’s that time of year again. Yes, it is almost New Year’s Eve, but that’s not what we’re talking about. It’s time to ask yourself: When was the last time my dryer vent was cleaned? With the New Year almost here, why not start a new tradition? Why not get your dryer vent cleaned at the start of every New Year?

This is an extremely valuable service that you don’t want to overlook. Every year, thousands of homeowners are the victims of damaging, and sometimes deadly, dryer vent fires. But they don’t have to be. Simply getting your dryer vent cleaned could prevent all of these fires.

You should start by always cleaning your lint filter every time you dry a load. But cleaning the filter isn’t enough. Your dryer vent extends for several feet under your home before it reaches the vent outside. Lint and other debris build up over time and that mess can spark a fire.

It takes special equipment to clean your entire dryer vent and get to those hard-to-reach places. That’s why calling a professional dryer vent cleaning company is the smartest move.

When you contact Better Air Northwest to get your dryer vent cleaned you can expect a complete and thorough job. You can rest assured that your dryer vent will be much safer after we finish.
