3 Signs It’s Time to Schedule a Dryer Vent Cleaning

While most people are aware of the fact that their dryer vent requires regular cleaning, many people overlook the signs that suggest it’s time to do so. If you haven’t had your dryer vent professionally cleaned in a long time, below are three signs to look for that mean you should make an appointment:

  1. Your clothes are taking longer than usual to dry.

If your clothes are taking longer to dry than usual, it is probably time for a dryer vent cleaning. The vent is designed to push out the moist air so that your dryer can pull in warm, dry air. Lint can also clog up your dryer and extend the time it takes for your clothes to dry. When these signs occur, it can also cause your electricity bill to skyrocket and put more wear and tear on your dryer. 

  1. There is a burning smell coming from your dryer.

A regularly cleaned dryer vent is important because it helps reduce the risk of a fire. Lint is very flammable so if you notice a burning smell coming from your dryer, then you need to turn it off immediately and call a professional.

  1. The dryer is extremely hot.

It’s normal for the dryer to feel warm after a cycle. However, if the dryer is unusually hot, your vent needs a cleaning. This is likely a sign that it’s not exhausting the air properly.
