Dryer Vent Maintenance Tips for Homeowners

There are a few preventative measures homeowners can take to lengthen the benefits of your dryer vent cleaning. Here is a list of what you can do.

Post-Cleaning Maintenance

  • Regularly remove lint from your dryer vent's lint trap. 
    • It is recommended that you do this after every load.
  • Make sure you dryer vent is up to code. 
    • If your vent pipe is made of flexible foil or plastic, you'll want to replace it with a safer, solid metal line instead.
  • Make sure the vent line isn't smashed or crinkled in any place as this will interfere with the airflow. 
    • Be especially watchful that your clothes dryer is not pushed back so far that it smashes or crinkles the vent.
  • Be sure to keep the area around the dryer free of flammable materials. 
    • Don't leave clothes on top of your dryer.
  • It is recommended that you do not leave the house when your dryer is in use.
  • Remember to schedule appointments to have your dryer vent professionally cleaned at least once a year.
