A clean dryer vent is so important because not only does it lead to greater efficiency in your dryer, but will also prevent any kind of fire hazard in your home.
When there is so much lint, the dryer has to work much harder than usual, and eventually is working much harder than it was made to work. As you may imagine, this also causes the dryer to function less efficiently. It takes longer for clothing to dry, and the dryer heats up to a higher temperature.
The buildup of lint in your dryer lint trap and your dryer vent hose is the greatest fire hazard you will have in your home. In fact, firefighters say that the most common type of house fires they fight are dryer fires caused by lint buildup. While shorts and high load on the electrical components cause some of the dryer fires, the underlying cause of these problems is a build up of lint in the dryer, especially in the vent and the lint trap.
Indoor air pollution is a serious health hazard; in fact, it has been shown to be at least partly responsible for the occurrence of a number of health conditions. Many people have reported their allergies are often made worse by the unclean air circulating in their homes. That is why it is essential to be sure your air ducts are cleaned and properly cared for on a regular basis.
One important part of maintaining a clean air conditioning and heating system is making sure the filter is regularly changed. This process should take place at least once a year, and even more frequently if necessary. If you do not own your own home, you should make sure your landlord takes care of this important detail. Failure to do so can result in the circulation of unclean air through your home, as well as actually diminishing proper air flow.
Regular air duct cleaning has been shown to help prevent some health problems, while easing the stress of others that already exist. While some in the profession will argue that this has not actually been proven, it is strongly believed by others because of the improvement people have experienced after having the ducts cleaned. It is time to consider having your air ducts cleaned if the following occurs.
If mold is visible on or around your air duct, it is time to have it cleaned. This will remove the mold that can be potentially dangerous to you and others living in your home. Because of the nature of certain molds, it may be necessary to have this area treated before the cleaning takes place. It is important to remember that though a substance may appear to be mold, it may take an expert in the field to actually determine if this is true.
If your air ducts are insolated and they become wet or moldy, it is time to have them cleaned. If this is the case, the insulation should be removed and replaced. This is an important detail because it may be more internal and, therefore, more difficult to see.
If you do find there is an occurrence of mold, you should remove the cause. If you fail to do this, the mold will recur. The cleaner your air is overall, the easier it will be to breathe. Cleaner, less polluted air will also result in better health for you and your family.
