The Importance of Cleaning Your Dryer Vent


If you own a clothes dryer, it’s important to keep the vent clean. Lint can clog the exhaust system, preventing the dryer from running correctly. This causes the dryer to take longer to dry clothing, which in turn raises your power cost and poses a fire danger. Luckily, there are some easy steps you can take to prevent this from happening. 


How to Keep Your Dryer Vent Clean

First and foremost, be sure you clear the lint trap in your dryer on a regular basis. This will assist in removing some of the lint that might accumulate in the vent. You should also vacuum the area around the vent on a regular basis. Finally, once a year, have your vent professionally cleaned to eliminate any lingering lint and dirt. These easy actions can assist to maintain your dryer working smoothly and avoid fires. 


While it may seem like a small task, keeping your dryer vent clean is important for both safety and efficiency reasons. By taking a few minutes out of your week to vacuum and clean the lint trap, you can save yourself time, money, and even a trip to the emergency room. Thanks for reading!
