Longer Drying Time

How It Affects Your Laundry – And Utility Costs

The condition of your dryer vent system directly impacts your laundry routines and utility costs. A properly functioning dryer system should dry your clothes in a single cycle, about 50 minutes. Obstructed or improperly installed dryer vents restrict airflow causing systems to work harder, increasing dry times and energy consumption.

Why Dryer Vent Cleaning Can Help:

Over time, debris, lint, and other particles get stuck in the vent, blocking the airflow. By clearing blockages out, vent cleaning ensures optimal performance, reducing drying times, energy consumption, and fire hazard risk.
