How Do I Know If My Dryer Vent Needs to be cleaned?

Using the following as a checklist, you can get a good idea if your dryer vent is in need of cleaning:

  • Loads of clothing are taking longer to dry.
  • Clothing is very hot and still damp when dryer finishes (especially heavy items especially, such as towels).
  • The dryer itself feels hotter.
  • There may be no lint on the lint screen (i.e. the exhaust system is clogged).
