Hidden Dangers in Your Home
There is a hidden danger spot in most homes today. Chances are you don’t look at it or even think about it. It’s the venting from your clothes dryer. Over time, it fills with lint that sneaks by your dryer’s filter. Overheating comes next as the lint builds up. Now you’re just a step away from a duct fire. Sound far-fetched? Here are some sobering facts:
The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that over 24,000 clothes dryer related fires occur each year.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission also reports that the most frequent starting point for these fires was the dryer vent area. The typical scenario is simple. The dryer overheats, the lint catches fire and the fire is then helped by combustibles in the immediate vicinity (these fires can smolder for hours going unnoticed until after you’ve gone to bed or left your house for an errand.)
Fortunately, removing this danger from your home is neither complicated, nor expensive. And there are some nice extra benefits as well. Removing this lint, for example, results in a dryer that runs cheaper, since it uses less energy to get your clothes dry. Drying times can even be shorter, getting you out of the laundry room faster. Finally, the dryer itself can last longer since it’s not stressed by the higher operation temperatures caused by the lint buildup.
Warning Signs For Dryer Vent Service
The top of your dryer is hot to the touch while in operation.
Your laundry takes longer than one cycle to dry.
After a drying cycle, your clothes are very hot to the touch or smell moldy.
There is no visible lint at the lint screen.
Your dryer repeatedly stops during the drying cycle.

Hi Greg and Ethan,
I just wanted to let you know that the bathroom is great! The floor got toasty warm this morning, and the bathroom was the perfect temperature for bathing—noticeably warmer than the rest of the house. Thank you so much for all of your hard work through all the glitches and idiosyncrasies of my old house.
I really love my new bathroom and all of the extras you did for me during the remodel. It was a pleasure working with you.
Hi Ethan and Greg,
Thank you so much for my new kitchen, it looks awesome. I knew I make the right choice in contractors when I watched your people work, the fact you took great care in keeping my house clean during the remodel says a lot about your company and your people. The shear speed in which you completed the remodel was impressive. I cannot thank you enough for all of your design ideas; it helped me get the kitchen I have always wanted.
