Risk of Dryer Vent Fires: Separating Fact From Fiction

Posted on: December 27th, 2013 by First Coast Home Pros No Comments

dryer vent cleaning Jacksonville FLHere at First Coast Home Pros, we take the prevention of dryer fires very seriously. It’s important to sort fact from fiction where dryer fires are concerned. There is a lot of information on the Internet about dryer fires and their causes. Some of this information is undoubtedly true, while some is simply false.

It’s been said that the use of fabric softener sheets can cause the heating element in your dryer to fail and potentially cause a fire. There is no evidence that suggests fabric softener sheets can cause your dryer’s heating element to fail. It is, however, proven that the use of liquid fabric softener has been found to add to the flammability of fabrics such as cotton, terry cloth, or velour.

Another online claim states that the use of fabric softener sheets will create a buildup of invisible film on your dryer’s lint screen. This alleged buildup prevents the water from flowing through the lint screen properly and creates a backup, which can also lead to a dryer fire. The claim further states that dryer owners should remove the lint screen and brush clean with a soap and water solution at least every six months. A thorough cleaning is always a good idea. These claims, however, can be misleading, and, even though, they contain some useful tips, they are not entirely accurate.

Clogged Dryer Vents… Higher Electric Bills…

Posted on: February 6th, 2013 by First Coast Home Pros No Comments

Preparing for Summer..

As summer continues to quickly approach, we find ourselves continuing to finish off our to-do list to prepare our homes for the heat heading our way.

Along with the warm temperatures comes a higher utility bill, due to our Air Conditioner working over time to keep our homes cool.

One simple way to help prepare your home and your wallet for the high temperatures that summer brings is to have your Dryer Vent Cleaned.

A clogged dryer vent can cause warm air to blow back in to the room where your dryer is located, eventually raising the temperature in the whole house. A clogged dryer vent also results in slower dry times per load thus using more energy, which in turn raises your bill.

Our dryer vent cleaning service is an inexpensive way to eliminate the unnecessary expense of extended drying times.

First Coast Home Pros uses a technique that cleans your entire dryer vent system twice – once from the outside and once from the inside.

We 100% guarantee our dryer vent cleaning service for 1 month (excluding normal accumulation of lint and debris).
