Why Dryer Ducts Needed to Be Cleaned

The U.S. Fire Administration reports that each year more than 2,900 home fires are started by clothes dryers, and the major cause of these fires is a buildup of lint because of lack of simple maintenance on the part of the operator. Each load of laundry that moves through your washing machine and makes its way to your clothes dryer comprises lint-mostly small particles of fiber and fabric that are loosened from clothes from the action of agitating water.

The removable lint filter in your dryer only cannot catch all of the lint freed from clothes. The lint that makes it to the filter get trapped in crevices deep within the lint filter trap and all over the drier ductwork as it makes its way to the external vent opening. After the lint builds up, they restrict airflow and result in overheating, which may spark the lint itself.

There are several warning signs that dangerous lint buildup has happened in your drier ductwork system, indicating that it needs a thorough cleaning:

  • Clothes take longer to wash or don’t dry completely
  • Clothes are hotter than ordinary in the end of the drying cycle
  • Outside drier gets really hot
  • Outside exhaust vent flapper does not open very much, indicating low exhaust speed
  • Laundry space becomes more humid than normal
  • Burnt odor is evident from the laundry area

How Often to Clean a Dryer Vent?

Depending on how often you use your dryer, you’ll want to have your dryer vent cleaned and carefully inspected to twelve weeks. Households that do two loads of laundry each day or at least one should schedule periodic inspections to find out how long they ought to go between dryer vent cleanings. 

If you do laundry regularly, scheduling dryer vent cleaning once a year is sufficient.

Remember when you clean your lint trap frequently, not the lint from your laundry is removed. Actually, only about 25% of the lint from your clothes is collected by the lint trap you slide from your dryer’s front. That means the rest is building up in the dryer vent system, restricting airflow and causing your dryer to operate. Because of this, you’re in danger of a fire and may start paying more on energy bills. Know stick to a maintenance program and how often to clean your dryer vent!

Dryer vent cleaning can be quite helpful. Here are the main advantages:

  • Shorter drying times for clothes, such as thicker materials
  • Elimination of moist or hot clothing at the end of a drying cycle
  • Increased safety, as outside flap properly opens during performance
  • Savings back into your pocket, thanks to lower energy usage
