5 Major Signs You Need a Dryer Vent Cleaning

Every year there are more than 16,000 dryer vent fires!

When was the last time you had your dryer vent cleaned? Despite being used daily, most homeowners forget that even their dryers need maintenance. Experts recommended a yearly cleaning to increase the lifespan of your dryer and ensure safety.

Lint and debris build up with each dryer use. While lint builds up in the lint tray, it also accumulates in the dryer vents and if left untreated the lint will constrict air flow and become highly flammable. The more wear your dryer experiences without being properly cleaned, the more energy and money you will be putting into repairs. With your dryer working overtime it can also create hazardous conditions including carbon monoxide.

Avoid these problems by recognizing the common signs of a dirty dryer vent.
— Clothes remaining damp after a full cycle
— Clothes emitting a musty smell
— Large amounts of lint in the dryer rather than the lint tray
— Burning smells
— Your dryer being unusually hot
