Repair Damaged Or Misaligned Flue Liners With FireGuard
Did you know that the leading cause of house fires is not chimneys and fireplaces? Dirty dryer vents account for thousands of house fires annually and result in as much as $35 million in total property loss. If you find these statistics surprising, you’re not alone. Many homeowners are unaware of the fire risk that accompanies clogged and neglected dryer vents.
These numbers come from the U.S. Fire Administration, an organization that is committed to a fire-safe America. Those of us here at Ground to Crown Chimney & Fireplace Services share the USFA’s mission of public education and fire prevention, which is why we are proud to offer our customers in Troy, Novi, Canton, Warren, and beyond the most thorough and effective dryer vent cleaning services. We work hard to keep our neighbors’ dryer vents clean so they can enjoy a safer home and a more efficient and longer-lasting clothes dryer.
When Should Dryer Vents Be Cleaned?
One of the most common questions we’re asked is “How will I know if my dryer vents need cleaning?” Some dryers may need cleaning annually, while others may only require a cleaning every couple of years. Frequency will depend largely upon use, but here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Is your clothes dryer requiring longer dry times to sufficiently dry your clothes?
- Does your dryer feel hotter to the touch than usual?
- Do your clothes feel hotter than normal after a cycle?
- Do you find lint gathering behind and around your clothes dryer?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, your dryer may be suffering from a clogged and dirty dryer vent. But we can help.
Professional Cleanings Remove Lint, Without Dirtying Your Home
During a professional dryer vent cleaning, we’ll use specially designed brushes and tools to loosen any lint that may have settled along your dryer vent, being careful to contain every last bit in one of our powerful HEPA vacuums. We’ll also check to make sure no animals or birds have made their way into your vents through the opening at the termination outside.
