Most dryer manufacturers recommend having your dryer vents cleaned annually by a professional dryer vent cleaning service.

How Do I Know My Dryer Vent needs Cleaning?

There are several signs that your dryer vent may be in need of immediate dryer vent cleaning service.

Also if clothes take unusually long to dry or are very hot to the touch after drying it is time to call for a dryer vent cleaning.

Regular Maintenance and Dryer Vent Inspection

Make sure to remove lint from your lint trap after every dryer load. Check your dryer vent, make sure it is made of metal not foil or plastic, if it is it will need to be replaced. Make sure the vent does not have any kinks or breaks and that the dryer is not smashing the vent pipe against the wall causing an obstruction.
