According to the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Data Center, 80% of house fires start with clogged dryer vents!
Don’t let your dryer become a fire hazard because it’s not cleaned regularly and properly.
Thousands of home occupants are treated for symptoms of poisonous gas fumes that back up into the home due to blocked dryer vents.
Cates Services uses a combination of suction provided by our vacuum truck and/or portable equipment with power brushes on long flexible cables to remove the dangerous & fire hazardous lint from the dryer and dryer vents.
KNOW THE SIGNS
It is very easy to recognize the signs for dryer vent cleaning need. They include:
• Clothes that are abnormally hot to the touch after drying.
• Vent hood flap does not open during a dryers operation.
• It has been a year since your last dryer vent cleaning.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 40% of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.
When HVAC systems are clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result: Less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
Every Dryer Vent Cleaning receives a COMPLIMENTARY SANITATION & ATTIC DRYER VENT CHECK to ensure all contaminants are removed & your home is safe.
We recommend cleaning your dryer vent at least once a year and your air ducts every 3-5 years.
Those who have recently moved into a home, have a home over 5 years old, have pets or children, as well as many other contributing factors, should consider the condition of their air ducts especially for the sake of breathing clean air and contributing to the general wellness of your HVAC system.
