Dryer Vent Cleaning Tips
Remember to clean your lint trap each time you run your dryer. Keep in mind that the lint catcher does not catch every little bit of lint. Some of the lint will escape the trap and build up in the dryer vent and connected duct. Because dryer lint can be very flammable, if the hot air from the dryer cannot freely escape it can cause the lint to ignite.
Dryer vent cleaning is a small investment that can bring you peace of mind. We recommend that you schedule your dryer vent cleaning about once a year, depending on how heavily you use your dryer.
