Clogged dryer vents are a household fire hazard and can cause injury to your family’s respiratory health. Dryer vents allow your dryer to exhaust hot moist air to the outside, often carrying with it the lost fibers from your clothing. This lint builds up in your dryer vent, reducing airflow over time.
A dryer vent that is not functioning property will release hot air into your home and it can take an excessive amount of time to dry your clothes, putting a strain on your dryer as well as your utility bills. In the worst cases, a fire can result.

Nearly one-third of all dryer fires is caused by a failure to clean.
A clogged dryer vent makes it more difficult for moisture to evaporate, leading to longer run times and higher temperatures.
A clean dryer vent lowers energy usage and reduces premature wear and tear on your appliance, saving you money.
Dryer vent cleaning is necessary to avoid the development of a fire hazard. Excess heat due to uncleaned dryer vents can be dangerous as it can cause a dryer to catch fire unexpectedly. The fire then spreads through the vent, fueled by highly flammable lint, and throughout the home. Cleaning your dryer vents from the laundry room through to the outside exhaust will provide peace of mind.
Dryer vent cleaning should be an important part of your home maintenance and fire prevention. It is estimated that approximately 15,600 fires are associated with clothes dryers per year.
Recent industry studies have shown that an excessive amount of lint in the dryer vent may add an additional $15-$25 per month to your electric bill, which is about $300 a year in unnecessary energy cost. Typical dryer vent cleaning services cost less than $300, so it just makes sense to follow the manufacturer recommendations and have your dryer vent professionally cleaned at least once a year.
