Your dryers’ vent system needs to be cleaned professionally every once in a while, and we will tell you exactly why. The lint that is accumulated in the filter after every load is not all the lint your clothes lose. Some of this lint passes through the filter and enters the vent system and other components of the dryer. If the dryer’s vent is not adequately cleaned periodically, the lint buildup can get to a point where it causes the machine to overheat. This turns into a fire hazard that could lead to a dryer fire. In fact, most of the fires that initiate in the dryer room are caused by an improperly maintained dryer vent.
But our dryer vent cleaning experts can help you reduce the risk of your dryer becoming a fire hazard. Just give Air Duct Allen a call if you notice any of the following signs:

• Your drying load takes longer to be ready
