-- When a dryer vent becomes clogged with lint and debris from countless loads of laundry, the dryer can start to function poorly and less efficiently. You might start to notice that clothes take longer to dry, and when your next electric bill comes, it might be higher than you’re accustomed to. Worse, your dryer might be stressed in ways that aren’t visible to you, but could turn into expensive repairs down the line. If your dryer is experiencing difficulties drying your clothes, or if it’s using more energy than it should be, it’s likely time to have your dryer vent cleaned.
“The difference some people see after having the vent cleaned out is remarkable,”
said Carl Hein, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard. “Some haven’t had the dryer vent cleaned for years, or at all. This is a big fire hazard, so I’m always happy to get in there and clean the vent before a dangerous situation can take place.”
Mr. Hein encourages customers to have their dryer vents cleaned before the warmer summer weather hits, especially if the dryer sits in a room that is warmer than others, or if the dryer falls under direct sunlight. The warmer temps can add further stress to a dryer that might already be working harder thanks to a clogged dryer vent.
“If the dryer is running more hot and it’s already working hard because the vent hasn’t been cleaned, that’s definitely a cause for concern,” added Hein. “If you haven’t had your vent cleaned recently, or you can’t remember having it cleaned at all, we strongly encourage you to do have that done.”
