Benefits of Having Your Dryer Vents Professionally Cleaned
When you schedule your dryer vent cleaning with The Mad Hatter, a trained technician will arrive ready to work for you. They will thoroughly inspect your appliance and take the following steps to clean your dryer vent properly. Our professional dryer vent cleanings can provide the following benefits for your home.
Reduces the Risk of a Dryer Fire
The chance of a dryer fire reduces drastically when your machine can properly exhaust warm air through its vent. If your vent is clogged with lint, there is a higher chance of a spark or ember-catching flame.
Reduces Energy Use and Lowers Monthly Utility Bills
Your machine will run more efficiently when properly ventilated and use less energy. You will see the savings on your monthly electric or gas bills.
Reduces Wear and Tear on Your Dryer
Dryers that operate efficiently will not overwork themselves. This can help extend the lifespan of your appliance.
Allows for Faster Drying Times
More efficient machines mean more efficient laundry days.
Reduces Amount of Lint Left On Clothes
Clogged dryer vents are what cause lint to go back into your machine. Rather than being sucked away, they are forced back where they came when airflow can’t properly travel through your vent. A clean vent will leave less lint on your clothing after a cycle is finished.
Increases The Life Of Your Clothing
Your machines won’t overheat as much, which will help keep your clothes looking and feeling fresh.
Why Dryer Vent Cleanings Are An Essential Service
The leading cause of dryer fires is lack of maintenance. Lint buildup in your vent will cause insufficient airflow and force your machine to work harder than necessary. Lint is also a highly flammable material, making your machines more susceptible to catching fire when left unserviced.
Causes For Dryer Fires

- Improper materials placed in the dryer
