When is it time to clean my Dryer Vent?

If your dryer doesn’t always perfectly dry your clothes each and every time.

If you’re finding yourself with particularly damp clothes even after a full drying cycle, or you’ve noticed that the outside of the dryer becomes very hot while doing its job, it may be time to clean out your dryer vent ducts.

Cleaning these ducts isn’t just important for your clothes and time. Over months and years, lint can accumulate in these ducts and mix with hot air and ignite, creating a fire hazard. Every year, dryer duct fires cause $35 million in damages, hundreds of injuries and even deaths.

If you ever notice a burning stench in your laundry room, this is another indication you should get cleaning sooner rather than later.

Experts recommend you clean out your dryer ducts twice a year. Contact Brushers Chimneys, Houston’s #1 Dryer Vent, Air Duct, and Chimney company.
