Naperville Dryer Vent Cleaning Explains How Lint Accumulates and Becomes Hazardous

Dryer vent cleaning is the only way to remove dryer lint build-up from the dryer ducts and inside the dryer cabinet

According to the Naperville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, dryer maintenance is very important; yet, too often neglected by homeowners and businesses in the Greater Chicago area. Most dryer fires and poor dryer performance problems are caused by failure to clean dryer vents.

When asked where dryer lint comes from and how it is formed, Manny explained, “Dryer lint is small fibers of clothing that are loosened as laundry agitates in your washer. The dryer forces heat and air through laundry as it tumbles dry, allowing the lint fibers to break loose and form clumps of lint.”

More than 17,000 dryer fires are reported each year, causing major property damage, injuries and deaths. Dryer lint is the main ingredient required to start a dryer fire. Add a small spark from inside the dryer to complete the recipe for a devastating fire. “In addition to causing the fire, lint provides ample fuel to keep it burning,” said Diesman.

The Naperville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard will make necessary corrections to dryer vent systems, repairing or replacing dryer ducts and expertly routing them for adequate airflow to efficiently expel heat and moisture so tumbling laundry dries as quickly as possible.
