How to Know When Your Dryer Vent Needs Cleaning


It’s important to know when your dryer vent needs cleaning. Simply put, cleaning your dryer vent is more than just a chore, it’s a safety must. The lint that builds up in your dryer’s vent can cause a clog, which is a fire hazard. Dryer fires are a serious issue, and the way to prevent them is to make sure your vent is kept clean and clog-free.

You can clean the dryer vent yourself if you have the right tools, however it’s always best to call a professional. Don’t wait to schedule an appointment with a skilled dryer appliance technician, speak to a professional right away and go to our Paul’s Washer and Dryer Repair contact page – here.

Simple 3-Step Dryer Vent Pre-Cleaning Process:

  1. Check your lint screen. If there isn’t much lint on it and you’ve been doing laundry, it’s possible the lint may have been caught in the vent instead of the lint screen, which means you have a clog. Lint in the area around where your dryer is can also be a sign of a problem.
  2. Time your dryer cycle. If it’s taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry, or if you are having to run each load more than one time, you may have a stopped-up vent. Items that are still damp after repeated drying cycles is a sure sign of a clog.
  3. Feel your clothing and the actual dryer. Clothes just out of the dryer that are extremely hot or an excessively hot dryer can signal a clogged vent.
