Dryer Vent Cleaning
If your dryer isn’t functioning correctly or takes longer than usual to dry clothes, it’s likely due to a clogged dryer vent line. Lint, debris, and anything else clogging your dryer vent not only impacts the function of your dryer, but is a serious fire hazard. While you should of course remove any lint (by hand) from the lint screen or trap after each cycle, it’s very recommended to conduct a thorough lint screen cleaning every year. Doing so increases airflow, the efficiency of your dryer, and extends the life of your dryer.
In fact, dryer manufacturers recommend cleaning your dryer vents at least once a year. Doing so improves the safety and efficiency of the whole drying unit. Unfortunately, a clogged dryer duct can lead to the whole dryer machine becoming burnt-out, causing it to lose its heating capabilities.
Some common symptoms of needing a dryer vent cleaning include the following:
- Not drying clothes efficiently
- Requiring multiple cycles
- Catching on fire
There are many benefits to annually cleaning your dryer vent. The most important of these benefits, of course, is avoiding a fire hazard. When your dryer collects lint from your clothes, it expels them through the dryer duct. However, when the dryer duct is clogged, there’s nowhere for the lint to escape. This causes your dryer to heat up, and to continue heating up until a fire breaks out. Additionally, the longer the dryer vent is, the greater the hazard.
