Have You Had Your Dryer Vent Line Sanitized?

If you’re looking at the above title and asking yourself, “Wait, why does my dryer vent line need to be sanitized? I thought I only had to keep it clean of lint!”. Unfortunately, that’s not entirely true. While you do need to keep your dryer vent clean of lint, there’s a bit more to cleaning a vent line than just that. That’s where line sanitization comes in!

Why exactly should your dryer vent line be sanitized? Because it’s just like every other surface in your home (like countertops, etc.). You clean and sanitize those regularly to avoid viruses and bacteria. Well, viruses, bacteria, and fungi can all set up shop in our dryer vents. Not only that, they can then spread to the rest of your home. Imagine all that on your clothing…that’s why your dryer vent line needs to be sanitized.

Most appearances of viruses, bacteria, and fungi come about when animals have built nests in your vent system. Rodents and birds are fond of nesting in the dryer vent because it’s warm and cozy. Not only does this raise the risk of a fire occurring and obstruct airflow, but think about all the icky things found in these animals’ nests. Rodent and bird nests can have bacteria, Histoplasma capsulatum (a fungus that affects the lungs), or even Hantavirus (a virus that can kill humans). You don’t want ANY of these to be near your family!But don’t panic! Dryer Vent Wizard is here to assist. Our technicians know how to remove those nesting animals and take care of any viruses, bacteria, and fungi left behind with our professional dryer vent line sanitization and cleaning. That’s not all, though! Our technicians can also prevent this from happening again by installing pest-proof vent covers over all the termination points in your line. That means no more nesting, no more risk of harmful stuff getting into your vents!
