How often?

Dryer vents should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year! If you have not taken the time to do that yet this year, we are sure the lint that has been building up in the vent over the year is ready to spread its wings and fly on over to the trash. Your dryer will thank you, and your family will be grateful for helping prevent a dryer fire. If you are one of those people who like to go the extra mile, it’s best to clean it out twice a year to ensure lint buildup prevention.

Why?

Dryer vents slowly accumulate lint over time, and this can cause your dryer to slowly become less and less efficient. With this decrease in productivity, your electricity bill can be increasing right under your nose. It doesn’t just affect the cycle time either, the accumulation of lint can be a major fire hazard. Failure to clean lint from dryers is one of the leading causes of dryer fires! If you begin to notice a burning smell coming from your laundry room definitely take it seriously.

What if I forget, how will I know when it is time to check?

As the lint continues to build up in your dryer, your clothes will begin to take longer to dry. When you have to restart your dryer a few times for the clothes to dry completely, it's time to make sure nothing is clogging it up. Also if you go to pull the lint trap out and still see lint stuck below, it’s likely your might have lint stuck in other places such as the vent too.

How to clean your dryer vent?

Before beginning you should make sure to see if your dryer is gas or electric. If your dryer is a gas dryer be sure to turn off the gas supply while cleaning it out and ensure the flexible gas line is still tight on the dryer when repositioning the dryer to its original spot.
