Dryer Vent Cleaning

How often should dryer vents be cleaned?

dryer vent cleaning If you are noticing that it is taking longer than normal for your dryer to dry your clothes, it may be time to have your dryer vent cleaned. As hot air goes from your dryer to the outside through your dryer vent, so to does lint from the clothes. Lint is very flammable and after time, builds up in your dryer vents. Every time you dry clothes a small amount of lint will go directly though the dryer vent and eventually some lint will start to build up. If this is ignored the dryer vent can actually become partially or even completely clogged. House fires and other problems can be caused by a dirty or clogged dryer vent. We recommend that you have your dryer vents inspected annually and cleaned every 3 year to avoid these hazards. It also depends on how much laundry you do. Bigger families that do more laundry may need the dryer vent cleaned more often.
