Why You Should Clean Your Dryer Vent

August 29, 2022

Have you ever asked yourself, "Why should I clean my dryer vent?" Maybe you have thought about it or even done it. Aside from making sure it serves its purpose - which is to take the hot air out of your home - I bet that many don't know why this is necessary. Here are some things to think about when deciding if cleaning your dryer vent is something you should do.

Improve Dryer’s Efficiency

When you clean your dryer vent, you remove the dust and dirt allowing it to work more efficiently. If you notice that your clothes don’t dry as quickly as they used to then this is a good sign to call a professional.

Increase Dryer’s Life Span

A machine working too hard to do something it’s supposed to, is never a good sign. In fact, if you notice your dryer overheating, or your clothes feel hot to the touch, it probably means your dryer isn’t exhausting properly through the vent. Having a clean dryer vent makes it run more smoothly, making it last much longer.

Protecting Your Health (And Life)

A clean dryer vent could save your life! In fact, 2,000 home clothes dryer fires are reported annually resulting in 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property damage, according to the U.S. Fire Administration.

Check your dryer vents and ducts regularly to see if they’re due for maintenance. See more Clothes dryer fire safety here
