According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires are sparked every year by clothes dryers. Lint and other debris can build up in a dryer vent, reducing air flow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, creating a fire hazard.
The buildup of lint over time in a dryer vent poses a potentially dangerous situation. Moreover, clogged dryer vent pipes cause the dryer to work harder and can greatly increase the cost and the time it takes to dry clothes. Crystal Clean Duct Service can help solve this problem by professionally cleaning the dryer vent and removing the lint and debris that causes the fire hazard.
