Although it’s tempting to dismiss your dryer’s lint trap as nothing to worry about if you clean it out, the lint that builds up inside of your dryer vent system can present an often unknown danger to your home.
A dryer ventilation system that has enough buildup can cause a fire that could damage your property, cost you your home, or worse. Fortunately, you can ensure your family’s safety as well as the safety of your belongings with professional dryer vent cleaning from the HVAC experts at Duct Doctor!

During the clothes-drying process, your dryer’s lint catcher will collect most of the lint produced by the clothing. However, it’s a matter of time until some of it will get lodged into the dryer vent itself. A dryer hose that has been bent so as to fit into a tight space is even more prone to clogging, causing an estimated 20,000 home fires every year across the country! If your home’s dryer vent is obstructed, dented, or otherwise harmed, then it can quickly build up enough heat inside to start a fire. All of that lint serves as the perfect tinder for a bonfire in your house; Duct Doctor provides professional dryer vent cleaning in Baton Rouge so that this risk is eliminated.
