When you’re heating clothes with a tumble dryer, lint is given off, coating the flue, which then dries in between cycles. Tumble dryer flues are often neglected and rarely maintained, leaving an explosive combination of inflammable material in an enclosed space. The situation can be made worse when flues have long paths and many bends – in which the lint can accumulate and block the passage – and your insurance company might void your claim if you do not have proof of vent cleaning in the event of a fire.
Statistics tell us that the flues catch fire due to the combination of inflammable material in an enclosed space and therefore need specialist cleaning periodically. This service is not normally costly but is beneficial as it not only improves the tumble operation by drying more effectively but also increases the life span of your appliance and reduces the risk of a fire
Regularly cleaning your laundry / tumble dryer vent will:
- Help prevent fires
- Improve the drying capability of your machines (the faster the exhaust can escape, the better the machine works)
- Increases the life span of your appliances.
