The duct and dryer vent cleaning expert in Miami helps homeowners prevent fires caused by airflow restrictions in their clothes dryers
Miami, Florida, 30th September 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, HVAC company Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp provides comprehensive dryer vent cleaning services to help homeowners comply with the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department’s recent advice on preventing fire hazards caused by clothes dryers. While it’s possible for homeowners to prevent fires by cleaning out clothes dryer filters following each wash, it’s difficult to remove lint trapped deep within dryers without the help of experienced HVAC contractors.
Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp solves this problem and urges homeowners to consider its services considering most home clothes dryer fires occur in the fall and winter months.
According tothe United States Fire Administration, there are approximately 6 deaths and 50 injuries for every 1,000 residential structure fires in Florida. In Miami-Dade, the annual number of fire-related deaths is among the highest of any county in the sunshine state and experts cite dryer vents blocked by dust, fiber, and/or lint as one of the biggest contributing factors.
This suggests that emptying lint from clothes dryers isn’t enough for preventing house fires on its own—especially if there’s dust trapped in parts of the dryer homeowners can’t clean without the help of dryer vent cleaning experts such as its vents. Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp’s dryer vent cleaning service is a direct response to this issue.
Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp’s contractors are technically adept at removing the dust that has built up in the deepest parts of a clothes dryer’s vent pipe. This ensures the dryer doesn’t overheat and ignite the dust within it. The company’s technicians also advise clients on how often they should have their dryers cleaned depending on factors like the age of the machine and how frequently it’s used.
If Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp’s contractors find that one of their client’s clothes dryers is likely to be a fire risk despite a thorough vent cleaning, they make appropriate recommendations like suggesting a replacement.
A spokesperson from Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp commented, “Homeowners think the vents in old dryers are more likely to get blocked and cause fires. The reality is the make, model, and age of a dryer don’t affect whether the dryer is a fire hazard. An old dryer that’s routinely inspected by HVAC contractors for dust blockages is far safer than a new dryer that isn’t. No matter how fancy a dryer is, it still needs a good deep clean at least once a year depending on how often it’s used.”
When asked to comment on whether Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp’s other services help reduce residential fire hazards, the spokesperson replied, “Absolutely. We’re an HVAC company—so we’re well-versed in scrutinizing several types of equipment designed to heat or cool your home that can potentially cause a fire. Whether you’ve got a ductless air conditioner that’s overheating due to a malfunctioning outdoor condenser or a central AC system with blockages in its ducts, you can rest assured our contractors will find out and address it immediately to prevent fires at your home.”
In addition to dryer cleaning, Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp offers a thorough AC maintenance service that includes cleaning air conditioner evaporator/condenser coils and unclogging blocked condensate drain lines. They also repair malfunctioning condenser unit motors and thermostats that prevent HVAC systems from functioning efficiently. If there’s a damp smell emanating from a leaky AC unit, Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp’s technicians repair the source of the leak and disinfect the unit to ensure it smells fresh.
Every air conditioning contractor at the company holds licenses from the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and the North American Technical Excellence Institute, so clients are assured of professionalism and reliability.
If Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp’s contractors feel a client’s current air conditioning system warrants replacement, they assess the dimensions and cooling/heating requirements of the property. This information is subsequently used to recommend ductless and/or central air conditioners, both of which Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp specializes in installing. Every air conditioner installation is backed by Carvajal A/C Mechanical Corp’s 100% satisfaction guarantee and all parts like fans, motors, and filters are sourced from some of the most well-regarded AC brands like Carrier.
