For many homeowners not only in Parkland but across the United States, a clothes dryer is an indispensable convenience and necessity in their homes.

Cleaning your dryer vents on a regular basis can save you money in terms of lower utility bills and it also ensures that you are living in a safe environment. At Parkland Air Conditioning Repair, we are here to offer you and your family comprehensive and competitively priced dryer vent cleaning services.
Dangers of Dirty and Clogged Vents
According to a research conducted on clothes dryer fires in residential buildings between 2008 and 2010 by the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), approximately 2,900 clothes dryer fires happen each year across the United States. This leads to around 5 deaths, 100 injuries as well as over $35 million in property damage. According to the report, dryer fires were more rampant in fall and winter months. Failure to clean dryer vents on a regular basis was the leading cause contributing to the ignition of clothes dryer fires at 34 percent.
Apart from posing fire hazard, dirty and clogged dryer vents also cause your dyer to operate inefficiently thus consuming huge amounts of energy leading to increased monthly energy bills. This in turn weakens the dryer thus considerably shortening its lifespan.
