Power Vac London can eliminate your dryer duct fire hazards
Many of us use our dryers regularly without thinking of the possible risks associated with a plugged dryer duct. When your dryer duct becomes restricted with lint buildup, the airflow also becomes restricted, causing the dryer to run hotter with the possibility of overheating. Highly flammable lint builds up around the electrical components and heating element, which, in turn, increases the risks and possibility of an internal clothes dryer fire. Regular Power Vac cleaning of the exhaust fan and dryer duct is a good way to significantly reduce this potential fire hazard.

- The dryer will last longer

Dryer Duct Cleaning Frequency
The more frequently you use your dryer, the more often the vent should be cleaned. However, the method of venting also plays a role. If the dryer venting system is relatively long (more than 15 feet) or has 90-degree bends or sharp turns, it should be cleaned more frequently. Most appliance experts agree that having the dryer venting system cleaned every 500 loads or so should suffice, but you should have your dryer vent professionally inspected by a professional at a minimum every 2 years. Additionally, you should clean out your dryer’s lint trap after every load of laundry.
