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).
