A dryer that has not had its dryer vents cleaned is obvious because its performance will start to wane after only a short period of time. Clothes begin to need longer drying times because they almost always come out still damp. The dryer also no longer produces the same heat it did when it was brand-new. Does this sound like your dryer? That could mean you have a blockage of lint in your dryer vents that should immediately be cleaned.
Because not only is lint bad for the performance of your dryer, it is also an extremely dangerous fire hazard. The US Fire Administration estimates that 3,900 dryer house fires occur every year, costing up to $35 million in property damage. When your vents are thoroughly cleared of all lint and debris, your chances of being the victim of a house fire drops significantly, which is why the USFA recommends an annual professional cleaning service for your dryer vents.
