The Danger of Lint
Just what is lint anyway? We have all seen it in our belly buttons and stuck in the charging ports of our cell phones, but what is it and why is it so bad? A long time ago garment factories used to explode because of the lint floating in the air, as a society we learned pretty quickly that lint was bad. It is bad for many reasons besides the fact that it is extremely flammable. It clogs up electronics, it can end up in a person’s lungs, and is basically your clothes disintegrating. Disintegrating clothes is the reason that your dryer vents need to be cleaned.
When you dry your clothes they release little particles of the fabric flowing out the dryer exhaust. The exhaust to your dryer is probably not a straight shot. If your home is older the ducting for the dryer is probably a maze of galvanized pipes. These pipes retain lint in every little crack and bend. If you do not know when the last time was that your had your dryer vents cleaned, let the trained professionals from Chimney Care Plus do a thorough cleaning.
