Why is dryer vent cleaning so important?
Annual dryer vent cleaning will reduce the amount of time it takes to dry a load of laundry. A dryer with a blocked vent can take 3 to 4 times as long to dry costing upwards of $3.00 per load compared to $.75. If your dryer is unable to let the hot air escape properly it will produce an unsafe amount of heat which becomes a fire hazard.
How often should I clean my dryer vents?
This varies from home to home. Generally dryer vents should be inspected and cleaned every 1-3 years. The main factors for cleaning frequency depends on the following; the age and type of dryer, the length, direction and number of bends the exhaust system has leading to exterior of building, and the amount of laundry dried in a given year.
