Falls Church, VA, November 12, 2022 – There’s no such thing as a typical project, and TJK is proud to announce the completion of its latest dryer vent cleaning project. Although vent cleaning isn’t the most exciting task in the world, it still ranks among our top-rated services. This is because dryer vents collect lint, dust, and debris over the years, which may cause severe problems later in life. Our recently completed dryer vent cleaning project for a residential home in Falls Church, VA, was an outstanding success and we couldn’t be prouder of its results. Our team cleaned the dryer vent quickly and efficiently with no damage whatsoever, and we are happy to say that we managed the job with excellence and success.
The owner of the home had recently acquired it and wanted to make sure that all of the systems in the building were working properly. The homeowner contacted TJK for an inspection and immediately we found a blockage in the dryer vent that would have potentially contributed to an increase in energy costs and posed a safety hazard by increasing fire risk.
“We were able to find that the dryer vent was blocked with lint and other debris,” said Narzullo, President of TJK Dryer Vent Cleaning. “We were able to clear out this blockage so that air could flow freely through the system again.”
Why is it important to clean your dryer vent?
The dryer vent is one of the most important parts of your washer/dryer unit. If it’s dirty, you could be wasting energy and money as well as exposing yourself to potentially harmful fumes. Here are just a few reasons why it’s so important to keep your dryer vent cleaned:
Dryer vents can get clogged with lint over time and this can slow down your dryer’s performance. Lint is one of the most common causes of a clogged dryer vent. As you use your dryer, lint will build up in the discharge duct and collect on the outside of your venting system. Over time, this can cause a buildup that not only slows down your dryer’s performance but also poses fire hazards and increases energy costs.
You may have heard that lint is a fire hazard, but what does that mean? If you forget to clean your dryer vent once or twice a year and the accumulated lint builds up too much, it can ignite in the dryer itself. Once there’s a fire in the dryer, it will spread quickly since the heat rises. If this happens inside your home and does not get extinguished promptly, you could end up with smoke damage in other parts of your house and a potential loss of life due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Lint also causes fire because it acts like kindling which makes any flames easier to spread, meaning they grow faster than if they were only burning on their own without anything else around them helping along the way. It is only essential to getting your dryer vent cleaned regularly because when lint builds up in the ventilation system of your dryer, your dryer vent system could affect the quality of the air you breathe.
Cleaning your dryer vent also helps you save money on your energy bills. You see, drying clothes faster saves energy as the heat in the dryer is not being wasted. The average family spends about $50 a year for an electric clothes dryer, according to Consumer Reports. And when you have a cleaner, more efficient dryer vent, it would take less time to dry clothes and reduce your electricity bills.
There are a lot of reasons why it’s essential to keep your dryer’s vent system clean, but the most important one is the safety of you and your family. If you don’t know how to clean your dryer vent by yourself, then hiring a professional like TJK is a good option, just like what our recent client did.
