I want to start by saying that everyone is going to have a clogged Dryer Vent at some point in time, it just depends on the clothes Dryer make and model and your Vent routing. Some will have it more severe than others and more frequently, that’s why it’s important to know the signs of when your dryer vent is getting clogged and needs cleaned.
A Clothes Dryer is basically a big evaporating machine, you put wet clothes in and the dryer heats them up while rotating them. As the water from the clothes evaporates it has to go somewhere, through the vent to the outside. If the vent is clogged the moisture stays in the dryer and the clothes just can’t get dry, and the Dryer continues to try to heat them up and work hard and hard. If left un-cleaned the dryer will eventually where out do to over running the machine, or your Dryer while overheat and catch the lint or your clothes on fire.
The warning signs that could save your dryer, home, or even your life. If your clothes are still wet after a full cycle on high heat, if the laundry room feels abnormally hot, if you have lint build up on the back of the dryer, if you cannot see or smell that the dryer vent outside is letting out air. These are signs that you need to have your Dryer vent Cleaned. Because whether you want to face the facts or not your Dryer passes lint in to the vent, and it will get clogged, and Dryer fires happen every day.
