Signs Your Dryer Vent Needs Cleaning

Jan 10, 2017

Dryer vents are an often neglected feature of the home. Like any system in your home, they need regular maintenance and cleaning in order to stay in top shape! Dryer vents only accumulate trace amounts of lint after each load, but after enough time build-up can constitute a major fire hazard! Here are some of the signs that your dryer vent needs cleaning by Modern PURAIR.

  • Its Dirty!

When’s the last time you looked at your dryer vent? If you can’t remember, chances are it needs a cleaning! Dryer vents are often intentionally hidden on the exterior of a home. Out of sight, and out of mind, it’s very easy to forget about them entirely. All it takes is quickly finding yours and taking a quick peek inside. If you see an obvious accumulation of lint, it’s time to book a cleaning!

  • Your Dryer is Taking Longer to Dry

Did your dryer originally dry clothes efficiently, but now seems to be taking longer and longer to dry? Checking your dryer vents ought to be the first step you take to remedy the problem. Most attribute a deteriorating dryer to gradually-decreasing efficiency, but more often than not, it’s simply vent accumulation!

  • Your Clothes and Dryer are Unusually Hot

If there is a blockage, or anything restricting airflow from the dryer to the outside, your dryer is less able to vent accumulated heat. This can lead to not only damaged clothes, but a damaged dryer; and in the worst case, fire!

  • You’re Finding Lint in Odd Places

You change your dryers lint filter every time you dry a load, but for some reason you’re still finding lint everywhere. It’s on your clothes, hiding in nooks and crannies, and little balls seem littered all over the interior of your dryer. This is probably due to the fact that your dryer is incapable of venting to the exterior due to an accumulation somewhere in your venting system!

  • You Can’t Remember Your Last Inspection

If you can’t remember the last time you had an inspection of your dryer vents, it’s time to make a call to Modern PURAIR. It’s recommended that dryer vents be inspected at least once yearly to ensure your system remains in top working order, and to reduce the possibility of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Dryer vents are often neglected, and this can have serious consequences. Vent accumulation leads to the gradual loss of efficiency for your dryer, meaning more time and money spent each load just to get things dry. In the worst cases, these neglected accumulations can represent major fire hazards, so call Modern PURAIR today for dryer vent inspection and cleaning!
