Why is fall chimney cleaning important?

Breathing - Seems simple right? Lingering creosote and ash in your chimney and fireplace stagnate and your respiratory health suffers. A clean-smelling chimney will improve your mood and you'll be open to welcome visitors.

Safety - Approximately 23,000 chimney fires occur every year, causing nearly a billion dollars in damage, and potentially the loss of lives. Having your chimney cleaned annually will help you avoid a disaster.

Is having your dryer vents professionally cleaned worth the money?

Dryer vent lint not only accumulates in your lint traps, but it can also build up in your dryer vents. As most of us know, this lint is extremely flammable, and buildup can lead to dryer fires. As lint and other debris build up in dryer vents, it constricts airflow to the dryer. With less air, the dryer is forced to work harder to heat the air, producing hotter and hotter air as the dryer vents get progressively more clogged. Left uncleaned, the superheated air can ignite the lint and lead to a home fire.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that clogged dryer vents are the cause of more than 15,000 home fires each year. Dryer vent fires cause more than $200 million in damages to homes and properties and can be largely prevented with regular cleanings.

Signs you have a clogged dryer vent
  • Regular loads of clothes are not fully dry after a full cycle.
  • Clothes or the dryer are too hot to touch.
  • Loads take progressively longer to dry completely.
  • The laundry room area around the dryer becomes warmer after use.
  • More lint is found in the lint trap or can be seen around exterior vents.
