Why Get It Cleaned?
It may not seem like it, but a clogged dryer vent can be a huge drain on your energy! Thanks to it being far more difficult for air to get through the built-up lint, your dryer must work harder and longer to get your clothes fully dried. This can add up over time to be a big part of your energy costs!
Even more important, however, is the fact that a dirty dryer vent is a fire hazard! The lint trapped in the vent can begin to burn from the high temperatures, and if left to continue doing so, may eventually cause a spark. For your home and family's safety, it's best to keep it cleared out.
Indications It Needs Cleaning!
Wondering how to know whether or not it's time for another cleaning? There are some simple signs that can tell you! Visible lint and dust stuck in your vent is a fairly obvious one, but if you can't see it it's not always that easy. However, if you've noticed that your clothes take longer to get dry, or your dryer is hot to the touch, these are both signals that it's struggling to work past the built-up substances in the vent.
Most importantly, pay attention to whether or not you can smell something burning! This could mean that the lint is starting to singe, and a fire is not far off. Immediately turn the dryer off and wait to use it again until you get everything cleared out.
