A dirty dryer vent can cause an increase in your monthly bill and even lead to a home fire. When your dryer is being used, hot air needs to be able to exit your home safely. If there are any obstructions in your vent, it will make it harder for this air to escape. Another reason you will want to have your dryer vent cleaned, is to avoid any mold or mildew growing. We recommend having your dryer vents cleaned out annually to ensure optimal use. This will also help to extend the lifespan of your HVAC system. Listed below are some signs to look out for that would indicate it is time to have your dryer cleaned.
If your clothing and the outside of your dryer are extremely hot, the vent is not exhausting properly. This can waste energy and cause your blower to wear out faster.
