Dryer vent duct systems naturally accumulate sizable deposits of fine dust particles and lint over a period of years or even months. These deposits, combined with the temperature, and atmosphere within ventilation systems, often bringing mold growth, bacteria colonies or dust mites, not to mention the risk of fires in your home or business.
Dryer vents can become clogged with lint which given the proper circumstances, can start a fire in your home. The U.S. Product Safetyestimates that there are 15,600 fires each year. This is a serious threat to your home and family but it can sometimes be one of those, out of sight, out of mind, things you don’t necessarily think about. Although serious, fires are not the only problem caused by a dirty dryer vents.
Have you noticed that it is taking longer and longer to dry your clothes? The build-up of lint inside your vent pipe can limit the flow of hot air away from your dryer which can cause both of these issues.
How Often Should You Clean Your Dryer Vent? The recommended frequency at which your dryer vent should be cleaned can vary based on a number of reasons. These can include the distance between your dryer and the outside vent, the number of turns the duct makes on its way outside, and whether your pipe leads outside through your roof or through the side of your home or business. Many vents should be cleaned once per year to ensure proper ventilation and safety.
