Clothes dryers are among the most convenient of modern appliances. Like any other appliance or mechanical system, though, misuse can lead to a potentially dangerous situation. If you use a clothes dryer in your home, you should schedule dryer vent cleaning service with a qualified professional. The frequency with which your dryer vent should be professionally cleaned will vary due to a number of factors. Have your dryer vent evaluated by the Arlington dryer vent cleaning experts at All-Pro Appliance Repair for more information. We will make sure that you can operate your clothes dryer in the safest, most efficient manner possible.
Most homeowners acknowledge how important it is to clean the lint trap in their clothes dryer regularly. The lint that builds up in this lint trap, though, is only a part of the lint generated. The lint that bypasses the lint trap can build up within your dryer exhaust system. This can create the same potential fire hazard as operating your clothes dryer with a full lint trap. With this much combustible material in your exhaust system a fire is a very real concern, and under these conditions a fire can potentially spread quite rapidly.
While electric clothes dryers are probably the most common models, many homeowners opt to use a natural gas dryer. If you do so there is another serious risk to be considered if your dryer vent is dirty and clogged. When natural gas is used, carbon monoxide is generated. If your dryer vent is unable to vent air from your dryer during operation then it is possible for a carbon monoxide leak to develop from the appliance. Because carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless and tasteless it is impossible to detect with a CO detector. Make sure that your dryer vent is able to operate properly by scheduling professional dryer vent cleaning.
