Winter is just about over. Of course, we still have plenty of rain and chill to come for several more weeks. But we still start to notice a gradual change. Speaking of change, with spring on the way, we’ll be changing our heavy winter wardrobes for lighter, brighter clothing and jackets.
Everyone likes to break out a new wardrobe in spring. But when it comes time to store all those extra sweaters, heavy coats, flannel sheets, and blankets, be sure you give your dryer vent some attention.
Why should you care about your dryer vent? That’s a good question. We’re glad you asked. Your dryer vent is often overlooked. In fact, unless you go out of your way to look for it, you’ll probably never see it. But that could be a big mistake, especially at this time of the year.
Chances are you’ve been giving your washer and dryer a lot more work for the last few months. And all that extra work can add up to a lot more lent in your dryer vent. Those sweaters, blankets, and coats make a big difference.
As all of that extra lent and other debris builds up, it becomes a fire hazard. Dryer vent fires can cause terrible damage and they often do. So now is a good time to get your dryer vent cleaned.
