The buildup of lint in your dryer, or airborne contaminants in your air duct system can lead to costly repairs or dangerous risk to your home and family. Chimcare offers cleaning services for dryer vents and air ducts to maintain these systems, improve their efficiency, and clear away any blockages that put your home at risk.
According to the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires each year are started from laundry dryers. In almost every case, these dryer fires are a result of lint and other contaminants in the vent getting sparked and igniting from the heated condition of the vent. If the dryer vent had been clean and clear, there would be a far lower risk of fire. Chimcare can thoroughly clean your dryer vents to reduce the risk of fire and ensure the safe, efficient function of your dryer.
Although the risk of fire in your air ducts isn’t anywhere near as high as with your dryer vents, a dirty air duct system can cause serious health problems because of poor indoor air quality. Dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system every time your furnace or air conditioner runs, and over time, this buildup can result in reduced air quality. Poor air quality in your home can cause allergies, chronic congestion, lethargy, and even increased illness. Regardless of whether or not you have had your indoor air quality tested, you should still have your air ducts cleaned of contaminants every so often and Chimcare can help!
