Did you know that dryer vent fires are one of the leading causes of house fires in the U.S.? It’s a fact. Unfortunately the dryer vent cleaning in Moscow Mills, MO is something we rarely, if ever, think about. We usually install it one time and never see it again. But while we are ignoring our dryer, they are busy accumulating lint and other fibers.
This accumulation can lead to airflow restriction, which leads to your dryer having to work harder, which can lead to the motor over heating, which can then lead to the highly flammable lint catching fire.
Experts recommend having your vents cleaned at least once every 12-18 months. Specialized cleaning technicians are here to provide you with expert dryer vent cleaning services.
