It is a simple solution that can save you money and energy costs. The main culprit is lint. Excess lint in vents and the dryer block air flow, causing dryers to operate less efficiently.

The Hygienic Home uses only eco-friendly cleaning techniques and products – an important consideration in the laundry room, says Krentzman. “You don’t want to introduce any volatile chemicals during the cleaning process,” he said. “They leave residual odors that clothes can pick up in the laundry cycle.” In addition, regular cleaning is an investment in your family’s safety and your peace of mind as the CPC estimates that clothes dryers cause more than 15,000 fires a year, resulting in 20 deaths and 370 injuries. The Hygienic Home is an environmentally friendly detailing and deep-cleaning service that uses unique European technologies and only safe, eco-friendly products to create a healthier home environment.
