Dryer Vent Cleaning in Hermitage, TN
For many families, the clothes dryer is an indispensable convenience and often considered a necessity. Because of the focus on the functionality of the appliance, most forget about routine maintenance but without proper maintenance, clothes dryers can start a home fire!
Thousands of home fires are started by clothes dryers in America each year, causing an estimated $35 million in property loss. Annual dryer vent maintenance not only helps prevent a home fire but can greatly increase the efficiency of your dryer, saving you money.
These fires are caused when lint builds up over time in the dryer vent, or animals decide to nest in the vent. In addition, newly constructed homes tend to have dryers installed in bathrooms, kitchens, or hall closets that are away from outside walls. These locations mean dryers tend to be vented longer distances with sharp turns and bends to accommodate the structure of the home.
Our experienced crews will clean out your dryer vent in the surrounding Nashville areas and make sure it is properly venting to an outside wall. Properly installed dryer vent covers can prevent the animals in your neighborhood from setting up shop in your vent.
Dryer Vent Repair & Installation
Many homes, even new construction homes, have plastic flexible ducts in them to vent the dryers to an outside wall. All manufacturers now state in their manuals NOT to use plastic flexible dryer ducts because the plastic itself can add fuel to a dryer vent fire and make the fire spread faster.
Many homes have flexible foil vents, thought to be better than plastic. However, these foil vents can sag, allowing lint to build up and catch on fire if it comes in contact with a sufficient amount of heat. If a fire starts beneath the dryer when the motor overheats, the drafts from the dryer can pull that fire up into the duct and start a house fire.
Faulty installations can vent dryer exhaust into the attic, crawl space, chimney or interior walls, which can cause indoor air deterioration and mold buildup. Dryer vents should be made of rigid aluminum and should always exhaust to the exterior of the home. Chim Chimney in the Middle Tennessee and Nashville areas can inspect your entire dryer vent system and update your home with the most up-to-date, safe, metal ducts.
