Is Dryer Vent Cleaning Really Necessary?
- Is your clothes dryer taking too long to dry?
- Do you have to run your dryer more than once to dry your clothes?
- Did an appliance technician recommend having your dryer vent cleaned?
- Is your dryer displaying an air flow error code?
- Is your dryer no longer heating or getting too hot?

Did you know?…
- 15,000 structure fires are reported every year and 80% of these are caused by clogged dryer vents
- A clogged vent will increase your electric bill since your dryer will need to run longer to get your clothes dry. A lint-clogged dryer vent can often consume $10-$20 worth of extra electricity every month.
- Because your dryer is working harder it will decrease it’s lifespan.
Dryers and their venting need ongoing maintenance to keep them in safe and proper working condition. As your clothes tumble in the warm air, fibers detach from the fabric creating lint. Most of it gets filtered in the lint screen. However, some of the lint gets past the lint screen, getting trapped in you dryer, your exhaust vent and sometimes blowing lint outside your home.
