Do I Need Dryer Vent Cleaning?
You should have your dryer vent inspected and cleaned at least once a year, depending on how frequently you use it. The risk of a dryer vent fire is the most important reason to have your dryer vent properly cleaned. The United States Fire Administration recommends that you have your dryer vent cleaned periodically by a qualified service professional because an estimated 2,900 dryer fires are reported in residential buildings each year, resulting in 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and an upward of $35 million dollars in property damage.
Pets are great for companionship, but pet hair can greatly increase the risk of dryer vent obstructions. When pet hair gets sucked into the dryer vent, it is easy tangled around the lint, which results in lint balls that are more susceptible to clogging your vent.
Clothes Taking Longer to Dry
If your dryer is taking longer than one cycle to dry your clothes, this may be an indicator that your dryer vent needs to be cleaned. Because your dryer needs free air flow to dry properly, any obstruction in the vent can reduce the efficiency of the dryer’s performance, causing your clothes to remain damp after one cycle. Removing the obstructions from the dryer vent will improve the dryer’s performance.
Higher Energy Costs?
Clogged dryer vents can actually affect your energy bill. When your dryer vent is not running at its best, unnecessary energy is used, which raises your bill. A clogged dryer vent can actually raise your energy costs by up to $24 a month—that adds up to $288 a year! Having your dryer vent inspected and cleaned annually will help save you money in the long run.
