You want your home to be as safe as possible. To make sure it is safe, you need to take care of some maintenance annually.

Our trained and experienced technicians have received professional certifications from the Chimney Safety Institute of America. We give you the same quality service no matter what the job may be. We would like to tell you more about why it is so important to get your dryer vent professionally cleaned.
Prevent Accidental Fires
Every year, according to the US Fire Administration (USFA), almost 3,000 clothes dryer residential fires are reported. These fires result in approximately 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in loss of property. About 1/3 of these fires were caused by dirty or clogged dryer vents. They could have been prevented by having the vents professionally cleaned. The reason why clogged dryer vents are so dangerous is because of lint. It is so flammable that many use it to start campfires. You can count on All American Chimney Service to remove this lint and other debris from the vent system. After we have finished the job, you can rest easy knowing your risk for an accidental dryer fire has been greatly reduced.
Extend The Life Of Your Clothes Dryer
When your dryer vent is clogged with lint, it causes the appliance to overheat because the hot air cannot exhaust properly. The increase in temperature can be high enough to ignite the lint into flames, spreading quickly through the home. This high heat can also lead to certain parts of your appliance to wear out earlier than they should. This can result in expensive repairs or possibly even have to replace your dryer. After your dryer vent has been cleaned, you will notice how much more efficiently it works. Also, this will save you money by extending the life of the appliance as well as by reducing the amount of your utility bills each month.
Keep your family safe by having your dryer vent professionally cleaned at least once a year. Contact us today at All American Chimney Service to schedule an appointment for our professional dryer vent cleaning service.
