If you’re wondering how often you should have your dryer vent cleaned; the answer is about every 2 years. According to The Consumer Product Safety Commission, 15,000 fires occur each year due to obstructed airflow because of lint buildup in consumer clothes dryers. Lint from textiles (clothes) is extremely flammable.
Not only is a clean dryer vent more safe, it’s also more efficient. A dryer vent clogged with lint reduces airflow so your dryer doesn’t dry as efficiently as it used to. An inefficient dryer wastes energy, wastes money and presents a fire danger to your home.
