Dryer Vent Cleaning & Chimney Sweeping

Find out why it is important to have USA Air Care perform dryer vent cleaning and chimney sweeping in your home.

 
The Dangers of Dirty Dryer Vents

You may not know it, but dryer vents are one of the major causes of hazardous fires every year. According to statistics, more than 15,000 fires are due to excessive lint in dryers and dryer vents.

When lint accumulates on the vent, it can block the flow of air and result in excessive buildup. Generally, lint screens only trap 75% of the lint and particles, while the other percentage accumulates in the vent. Dryer lint is highly flammable and can ignite easily when triggered with enough heat. Let us ensure that this does not occur.

Why Chimney Sweeping Is Important

The air inside the room fuels the fire burning in your fireplace. As the fire is burning, gases are released, which rise because they are lighter than the air inside the room. The chimney acts as an exhaust system and releases the gas to the atmosphere. As more hot air is released, the fire sucks more air from the room to keep efficiently burning.

As long as the airflow is continuous, you get a clean and efficient fireplace. However, deposits will build up over time, including soot and creosote, which are flammable substances. These can obstruct or sometimes completely block the chimney.

A well-maintained fireplace allows harmful gases to get out of the room and keeps your fire burning efficiently. However, if the fireplace is clogged, the gases will not be able to escape freely. Flammable deposits also have the tendency to burn, resulting in chimney fires. Keeping your chimney clean by employing a trained chimneysweeper is essential to reduce the outbreak of fire and prevent harmful gases from filling your lungs.
