Dryer Vent Cleaning

February is Dryer Vent Safety Awareness Month…with the month coming to an end the local duct cleaning specialist brings up a very important point



Peoria AZ – Everyone knows that February is Dryer Vent Safety Awareness Month and homeowners across the nation are cleaning dryer vents to prevent dryer fires and save energy. “Really?” asks Vince Divarco, owner of DUCTZ HVAC and air duct cleaning service.

It would be nice if this were a completely true statement, but the fact is over 80 percent of American homes have clothes dryers and only about 20 percent are aware of the necessity of dryer duct cleaning and dryer maintenance. More than 17,000 dryer fires occur each year causing deaths, injuries and nearly $200 million in home loss and property damage.

The highly qualified and licensed air duct cleaning professionals at DUCTZ (http://www.ductz.com/phoenix-deervalley) have all the bases covered as they also provide bathroom exhaust fan cleaning and dryer vent cleaning. All ventilation ducts require maintenance to improve safety, performance, efficiency and indoor air quality. All types of duct work can be a source of indoor air contaminants that can lead to health issues, especially for sensitive residents who may have asthma or allergies.

With the month of February coming to an end Vince Divarco urges homeowners to have a complete air duct inspection, especially the dryer vent system. There is no wrong time to clean dryer vents, so do not wait until February of 2014 just to celebrate a tradition! Divarco is especially concerned about homeowners who have never had a problem; therefore, never had an inspection and service. Their dryer could be a ticking time bomb with the next load of laundry causing a devastating dryer fire.

According to the local duct cleaning expert the most common warning sign is the dryer taking longer than normal to dry a load of laundry. This is not a sign of aging or wear, even with an older clothes dryer. Other signs include clothes being hotter than usual after a cycle and condensation on the vent pipe.
