Getting your dryer vent cleaned is something that might often slip your mind. You probably don’t give much thought about your dryer unless it is not working as it should. One of the easiest signs to notice on a dryer vent that needs cleaning is clothes still being wet or damp after a normal cycle.

Why should you get your dryer vent cleaned?

A dryer vent clogged with lint can be a very dangerous fire hazard. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, clothes dryer fires are responsible for $35 million dollars in property damage annually, with failure to clean dryer vent being the most frequent cause at 34%. If the vent is clogged with highly flammable lint, the heat produced by a normal drying cycle can easily start a fire in your home.

Benefits of getting dryer vents cleaned:

On top of the peace of mind from knowing that your dryer vent is clear and poses a lower risk of causing a fire in the home, a dryer vent cleaning can vastly improve the efficiency of your dryer. On top of saving time, a clean, efficient drying machine can help save money on your utility bill. If you typically dry 4-5 loads of laundry a week, the industry recommendation is to have your dryer vents cleaned annually.
