When To Clean Your Dryer Vent


Many homeowners don’t realize the importance of having their dryer vent cleaned yearly, and no one should blame them since most of the time nobody spends time to educate homeowners on the importance of that service. In this blog, I'm gonna give a few reasons for you on why you should consider getting it done soon.

The first sign that you should get the vent cleaned is - clothes don’t dry as fast as they used to or don’t dry at all. For them to get dried all that moisture has to be able to leave the dryer through the vent, and with that moisture comes lint. Which after 1-2 years obstructs the vent preventing any airflow. Which leads to the dryer not working correctly.

We spend a lot of money on our appliances, and the dryer isn’t an exception. So naturally we want those appliances to last as long as they can, so by doing regular maintenance on your dryer, you will prevent a lot of costly repairs as well as prolong the lifespan of the equipment significantly.

As you can assume, the less our appliance works the cheaper the electricity bill will be, so by servicing your equipment and reducing its operating time since it can dry clothes faster when it's maintained, that reflects on your energy savings making it another reason to get it done.

And the last and main reason is simply because it's a fire hazard and every year there are numerous fires caused by dryers not being maintained. The pipe gets extremely hot, lint is very easy to ignite so the two together equal fire, we don't want that.
