Your dryer vent is an often-overlooked area when it comes to air duct cleaning. People assume because it vents directly outside that it’s going to remain clean, however this just isn’t guaranteed. Keeping your dryer’s lint trap clean isn’t enough either. Your dryer vent has to be manually cleaned at least once a year. Not scheduling regular dryer vent cleaning can cause expensive and even serious problems such as:
Decreased Appliance Efficiency
Dirty or clogged dryer vents can mean your clothes take forever to dry resulting in higher electricity bills.
Dryer Wear and Tear
Your dryer can overheat or develop other performance issues.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
If you have a gas dryer, a blocked dryer vent could result in carbon monoxide emissions into your home.
