One of the easiest ways to protect both your family’s safety and your investment in your home is to make and keep a regular Dryer Vent Cleaning schedule in Sacramento CA. This simple task is often overlooked, but when maintained regularly takes very little time.
Neglecting to schedule regular Dryer Vent Cleaning in Sacramento CA is the cause of almost three thousand home fires each year, causing in the worst cases both serious injury and death- on average there are over one hundred cases of serious injury and at least five deaths per year in fires that are completely preventable by regular maintenance. It is one of the most important maintenance tasks that a homeowner can perform to maintain their property.
Besides the obvious health and safety issues, maintaining your dryer’s vent can save you money. A dryer is one of the biggest users of electricity in a regular home and improper care and maintenance can cost the homeowner hundreds of dollars each year in additional energy costs. Some signs that a dryer is overdue for a vent cleaning can include longer drying times becoming necessary, noticing that your clothing is suddenly not as warm coming from the dryer as normal, and damp clothes at the end of a full cycle.
Although regular lint trap cleanings should be performed after every use of the dryer, a complete Dryer Vent Cleaning in Sacramento CA should be performed at least once per year if the dryer is receiving average usage. It may be recommended more often if the dryer is used more than normal, meaning several times a day most days of the week.
When the scheduled cleaning time arrives, seek out a company with expertise and specialized knowledge in handling dryer vents and their varying materials found in different homes. Each vent requires careful handling to avoid damage during cleaning. Interview the company to ensure they are well-prepared for your specific situation. Reputable companies will gladly guide you through the process, the time required, as well as their methods and practices. For more information, reach out to A Cozy Chimney.
