Dryer Vent Cleaning
Cleaning out the dryer vent in your laundry room is an important aspect any homeowner should do well to follow through on. Dryer lint traps catch laundry lint, but most homeowners might be surprised to learn that dryer lint filter traps don’t catch it all. As lint builds up and collects in dryer ducts over time, the possibility of an unexpected fire increases.
Look for these warning signs to determine if your dryer vent is in need of a cleaning:
- Clothes don’t dry completely or they take longer to dry
- Clothes feel hotter than normal at the end of the drying cycle
- The outside of the dryer gets very hot
- Humidity in the laundry room increases
- There is a burnt smell in the laundry room
Each load of laundry you wash and put into the dryer contains lint. Lint is the small particle of cloth and fiber that is loosened from towels, clothes, bed sheets, and other washable items through the simple agitation of the water.
The lint filter in your dryer catches a portion of the lint buildup, but this lint filter in your dryer is not a catchall. Deep inside the lint filter trap and along the dryer vent hose or dryer duct, these small particles can build up over time.
