Reasons to Hire a Professional
Shorter Drying Times
A dryer that’s clogged with lint is an obvious fire hazard but it also ends up taking more time to dry clothes because lint buildup makes it difficult for the humid air to escape, allowing moisture to persist. By having your dryer vents professionally cleaned, you can shorten drying times and spend less time waiting on those clean clothes.
Lowers Your Energy Bill
When your dryer takes longer to dry clothes due to a lint clog, it ends up using more energy. Naturally, this means spending more money on utilities. Having your dryer vents regularly maintained meaning higher energy efficiency, lower energy bills, and less money spent just to dry your clothes.
