Have You Cleaned Your Dryer Vent Recently?

San Diego area homeowners: Have your cleaned your dryer vent recently? If this question puzzles you, you’re not alone. Dryer vent cleaning is unfamiliar to many homeowners. Perhaps you’ve never thought about it. Perhaps you didn’t know your dryer vent requires cleaning.

If you’re reading this article, consider yourself lucky. Failure to clean and maintain your dryer vent can have serious consequences. Home dryers spark thousands of fires each year—costing homeowners hundreds of million dollars in property damage(Source).

Multiple factors can create dryer fires, but for most dryers the culprit is similar: excessive lint meets excessive heat, sparking a flame. The best way to avoid a problem—and give yourself peace of mind—is to schedule an annual or bi-annual dryer vent cleaning.

So how do you know your dryer vent requires cleaning?

  1. Check your unit for efficiency. An inefficient dryer, which may leave clothes feeling damp after a normal dryer cycle, is often a sign of a clogged vent.
  2. Check your unit for excessive heat. Remember, hot air should stay inside your dryer, filtering away (with any lint) through the vent. A hot-to-the-touch dryer is another sign of a clogged vent.
  3. Does your dryer smell like something is burning? You may be smelling tiny fires:excessive lint bursting aflame. Of course, any burning smell is cause for concern, yet this is another sign of a clogged vent.
