Cleveland Dryer Vent Cleaning

Improving dryer health and performance.

When you do your laundry, you likely do your part to keep your dryer healthy and safe by cleaning the lint trap between loads. If you do that, you are good—right? Not quite.

Your lint trap is pretty good at its job, but it doesn’t catch everything. Plenty of fuzzies, dirt, and other debris will make their way into the dryer vent. Over time, they accumulate, and if not removed, cause significant problems.

Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning

Cleaning out your dryer vent isn’t optional. It must be done at least once per year, either by yourself or a professional. While it might not be the flashiest item on your to-do list, dryer vent cleaning comes with some pretty important benefits.

Better Dryer Performance

The dryer vent is how your machine removes hot, moist air from the drum of your dryer; it is essential to the function of the machine. As lint and other debris build up in the dryer vent, it partially blocks the passage of air. When this happens, the dryer often will be unable to fully dry clothes in a single cycle. Cleaning your vent puts less stress on the machine and allows you to use less gas and electricity.

Longer Dryer Lifespan

When hot, moist air cannot efficiently escape the drum, it isn't just the clothes that are affected. The electrical components of the machine are as well. The rising heat can easily damage wires and other items, causing the dryer to stop working. Additionally, since it will require multiple cycles to dry the clothes, mechanical pieces will wear out faster.

Reduced Fire Hazard

Lint is highly flammable, and just the hot air from the dryer and potential sparks from the electrical components create the perfect conditions for a house fire. Almost 3,000 home fires are tied to dryer vents every year in the United States. By eliminating the material most likely to catch fire, you reduce or eliminate the chances of one occurring.

Signs It's Time to Clean Your Dryer Vent

It's Been More Than a Year Since You Last Did

Dryer vents need to be cleaned a minimum of once per year. However, if you are a large household or just one that sees enough laundry for a family much larger than your own, you might need your vent cleaned even more often.

Drying Takes Forever to Finish

If you are running your dryer for a complete cycle and finding your clothes still damp, it means something has gone wrong. While the culprit could be everything from damaged electrical components to the user overloading the dryer, the most likely cause is a clogged vent.

Your Clothes Burn Your Hands When You Fold Them

Are you finding that even after the cooldown cycle, your clothes are almost painfully hot to touch? If so, something isn't right. Once again, there could be a variety of reasons for this, but your vent not allowing hot air to escape is most likely the cause.

It Gets Really Hot in the Laundry Room

Yes, your dryer running should slightly increase the heat in your laundry room, but it shouldn't feel like a sauna. If you are noticing excessive heat or moisture in the laundry room, it likely means that the hot, wet air from the drum is unable to fully escape through the vent.
