why should i clean my dryer vent?

At Golden Gutters, our priority is to ensure your dryer is running safely and efficiently. Cleaning and inspecting your dryer vents regularly can reduce safety hazards, lower your energy bills, and improve air quality.

A dirty dryer vent can pose fire safety hazards, due to the high heat paired with very flammable lint and dust. Dryer vent clogs are the leading cause of domestic fires in the US, responsible for thousands of fires each year.

Heat can also get trapped in your dryer, reducing the efficiency of your unit. Dirty dryer vents can reduce your dryer’s performance, so cleaning out your vents will reduce your overall energy usage

Lastly, a clogged dryer can trap moisture in the machine, leading to mold growth and contributing to poor indoor air quality. Regularly cleaning your dryer vent can release trapped moisture and stop harmful contaminants from re-circulating through your home, reducing the risk of these health concerns.

It is recommended to get your dryer vent professionally cleaned at least once a year to keep your home safe and efficient.

What are the steps to cleaning a dryer vent?

Dryers should be cleaned at least once a year, to avoid safety and efficiency issues. The steps to clean your vent are as follows:

  • Locate the vent at the back of your dryer and exhaust vent at the exterior of your property
  • Gather your cleaning supplies
  • Unplug the dryer
  • Disconnect the duct
  • Vacuum out the vent
  • Feed brush into the duct, extended as needed
  • Sweep up surrounding area
  • Inspect the exterior vent
  • Re-attach the duct and plug dryer back in
 
Note: Cleaning the lint trap after each run will keep your dryer exhaust clean, while simultaneously decreasing your machine’s drying time and risk of house fires.

“Super-prompt, efficient, courteous and tidy service completed by Jack. He informed me that the gutters were coming undone on the side of the house and he added new brackets to re-stabilize the gutters. He did this free of charge, which was really appreciated especially because this was already a very affordable gutter cleaning job.

They really exceeded my expectations. I’ve already scheduled my next cleaning in 6 months and have no hesitation in recommending them.”
