Do You Think About Your Dryer Vent?

Even though the dryer vent is often ignored or forgotten, it can be a hidden cause of multiple home issues if overlooked for too long. A clogged vent can cause your dryer to run inefficiently, causing you to have to run multiple drying cycles to get your laundry fully dried, which raises your monthly energy bills. More importantly, a clogged dryer vent can also create safety hazards. A professional dryer vent cleaning can prevent your home from experiencing the issues outlined below.

Clogged Dryer Vent Hazards

When lint builds up in the dryer or the exhaust duct, it can block the flow of air through the vent, causing excessive heat, which can result in fire. Additionally, due to the complex nature of current home construction, laundry rooms can be found in almost any any part of the house, meaning that the dryer may need to be vented further distances to an exterior wall. More bends in the vent duct create more opportunities for lint to become caught and built up. A clogged vent can also prevent a gas clothes dryer from properly exhausting, which can cause carbon monoxide to flow back into your home.

Signs of a clogged dryer vent:

  • Longer drying time and/or multiple drying cycles needed
  • Excessive lint behind dryer
  • No lint on the lint screen
  • Excess lint on dried clothing
  • Excess pet hair
  • Moldy smell
  • Lint around door seal
  • Dryer feels hot enough to burn you (dryer overheating)


I called this morning to schedule a cleaning when my stove started up so badly it wouldn't burn, expecting to see a technician next week some time, but when they found out that my wood stove was my primary source of heat, they said they'd be out in half an hour. My stove is running like new, and the two technicians made zero mess and were so friendly and polite. And to top it all off, they were great with my dogs and two-year-old son.
