But here’s some truth, emptying your lint trap occasionally isn’t enough. Approximately 60% of lint from each load of laundry is collected in the trap. Where is the other 40% of the lint? The lint that isn’t collected in the trap settles in the rest of the dryer vent system where you can’t see it. A dryer vent system includes the lint trap, the dryer exhaust in the back of the unit, transition hose, vent elbow, dryer vent and the dryer vent roof exhaust. This entire system is collecting lint every time you dry your clothes.
As they say: out of sight out of mind. What you can’t see is sometimes forgotten and that’s where the problems begin. 98% of the dryer vent system is confined inside the walls, crawl space, basement, or attic. Fire in a confined area may not be seen in time and may not trigger a fire alarm. Safety is a critical reason for maintenance but money is an important factor also. Proper dryer vent cleaning goes a long way and if you’ve noticed decreased performance, this could be the reason.
Keeping your family safe while being mindful of wasted electricity is quite simple. A professional cleaner will maintain the 98% of your dryer vent system that you can’t see or reach. A cleaning process with brushes and forced air will ensure that the entire system remains lint-free.
