No one really thinks about their dryer vents unless it’s brought to their attention by some issues that can occur.
When a dryer is taking more than one cycle to dry a load of clothes we often think its time to purchase a new dryer. However, what might be wrong has more to do with the dryer vent being clogged than the dryer not working properly. Most people think that the only thing you will find in that vent is going to be lint from your clothes but that’s just not always the case. Mice can make a nice little nest in the vent as well as birds. They like using the lint as it makes for a cozy home.

There’s A Hidden Fire Hazard In Almost Every Home…
it’s the dryer vent!
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that in 1998, clothes dryers were associated with 15,600 fires, which resulted in 20 deaths and 370 injuries. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire in some dryers.
Have your dryer vent system cleaned and inspected yearly by a dryer vent cleaning professional. A standard cleaning will involve unhooking the dryer, cleaning the vent duct with special tools, and checking connections. A professional can also service all venting situations, including today’s extremely long vent ducts. These ducts are especially susceptible to lint buildup. So don’t take a chance – put you family’s safety in the hands of a professional. It will protect them against potential fire and save you money as well – two great reasons why you should think about your dryer vent.
