3 Signs That You Need to Have Your Dryer Vent Cleaned

Dryer vent cleaning is one of those tasks that may not be on your radar, but Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning wants to change that. Unfortunately, there are risks involved with neglecting to have your dryer vent cleaned. There are also benefits to keeping up with this task, such as improving your air quality, increasing your dryer’s efficiency, and extending its lifespan. Let us go through three signs that it’s time to have your dryer vent cleaned.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

1. Longer Drying Time Required

If you have noticed that your clothes are still wet after a normal dry cycle, you might need to have your vent cleaned. A properly- cleaned dryer vent will help your dryer to run more efficiently and function at its maximum capacity. This will protect your dryer and save you money on your utility bills.

2. Your Clothes Feel Excessively Hot

If your clothes feel unusually hot when you remove them from the dryer, chances are you need to have someone take a look at your dryer vent. Sometimes, your dryer will even shut off prematurely if it becomes too hot. Excessive heat puts your dryer at risk of a fire, which can endanger the safety of your entire household. 

3. It’s Been Over a Year Since the Last Cleaning

At Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning, we recommend scheduling a dryer vent cleaning each year to protect your family and your investment. If the vent becomes completely clogged, it could cause a fire at any moment. According to FEMA, there are almost 3,000 dryer fires each year.
