Clogged Dryer Vents Present Very Real Threat to Your Home

Clogged Dryer Vents Present Very Real Threat to Your Home

Last February, we blogged about the importance of dryer vent cleaning. In fact, that blog post started out with: “You hardly ever think about it until you see a house fire on the news and hear it started from a dryer vent issue.  You wonder if it’s true that dryer vents need to be cleaned regularly or if a clogged dryer vent is really that big of a deal.” But, again, we at Cincinnati Maintenance have found that most homeowners or business owners just do not really think about cleaning the dryer vents … until a fire or other destructive issue occurs. We don’t want anyone to go through the hassle of dealing with a small fire in the laundry room or, more importantly, to have to deal with a major fire tragedy.  The above photo is from an actual dryer vent cleaning job we recently handled. As you can see, a clogged vent is, indeed, a big deal. Frequently, we are asked, “How often should I get my dryer vents cleaned?”  We recommend a cleaning every 12 months. Additionally, we will priortize a dryer vent cleaning due to the inherent risk it poses to your home or business. Please call our office to schedule a Free Inspection – 513-827-6150.    ...
