You know to clean the lint screen after each load, but lint also builds up between your dryer and outside. An estimated 15,000 dryer vent fires occur each year in the United States according to theConsumer Product Safety Commission. A fire can occur due to obstructed airflow when lint builds up in the dryer or exhaust duct. Textile lint is extremely flammable and when blocking the flow of air can cause heat build-up, acting as a firestarter.

When should I clean my dryer vent?

You’ll know it’s time to clean your dryer vent when it takes longer to dry a heavy load than usual or when the machine’s surface is very hot when in use. If you can’t remember ever cleaning it before, that’s also a good indicator that you should.

How can I prevent a dryer vent fire?

Contact us at Chimcare to clean your dryer vent before it’s too late. After the vent is clear, you can prevent further buildup by regularly checking for blockage and using a vent brush to collect lint. Cleaning your vent will increase the energy efficiency of your dryer along with keeping your home safe.
