In 2023, The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reported that dryers cause an average of 15,970 fires each year, and an average of $200 million in property damage.

These types of fires can be caused by lint build up in the dryer vent that blocks the flow of air causing excessive heat that can result in a fire.

Do you think that it might be time to clean your homes dry vent?

Many dryer manufacturers recommend that dryer vents should be cleaned once a year. By doing this it helps prevent fires as a result of lint-clogged vents and saves you money by causing your dryer to run efficiently. A more efficient dryer will use less electricity. So not only will your clothes dry faster, but you will also save money!

Increase Dryer Efficiency

Drying clothes produces a great deal of lint. We all know the how's and why's of cleaning the lint trap on a regular basis. Lint traps need to be cleaned after each load of clothes. But lint also falls below the lint trap and into the workings of your drier. Over time, they become trapped and clogged in your dryer vent. This will cause your clothes to take much longer to dry and will increase your electric bill. Regularly cleaning the lint trap as well as the vent will improve airflow, allow your drier to operate more efficiently, and save you money on your electric bill.

  1. Does your dryer take longer than 30-45 minutes to dry your clothes?
  2. Are your clothes abnormally hot to the touch after drying?

Reduce The Risk of Fire

The lint trap does not catch all the lint that is generated by your drier. A good amount of lint will make it all into the dryer air vent, which releases the heat to the outside of your home. Some of the lint gets stuck in the vent. Flexible dryer hoses, with their ridges and corners, are especially vulnerable to lint accumulation. Lint is highly flammable. When heat builds up due to an obstruction, the lint becomes very hot. Fires are easily prevented with periodic dryer vent cleaning.

  1. Does the vent hood flap not open during your dryers operation?
  2. Has it been one year since your last dryer vent cleaning?
