Lint can build up in your interior dryer ducts as well as your dryer vent. Having your dryer vent cleaned by a professional once per year is essential to keeping your appliance running efficiently and reducing the risk of fire. Regular dryer vent cleaning can help you save energy, keep your Baltimore, Maryland, home comfortable and safe, and prevent pests.

Save Energy

Drying clothes takes longer if your dryer vent is clogged or blocked. This wastes energy and increases your utility bills. Dryer vent cleaning helps you save money, and it increases your dryer’s life by preventing unnecessary wear and tear. A clean dryer also saves time, giving you more opportunities to relax and have fun with your family instead of worrying about the laundry.

Keep Your Home Safe and Comfortable

A dryer that can’t vent properly could leak hot, humid, dust-filled air into your home. This can encourage mold growth and make asthma and allergy symptoms worse. Moreover, a buildup of lint can be a significant fire hazard. If you start to notice a musty or burning smell, your dryer gets unusually hot, or clean, dry clothes still have a strange odor, your dryer vent may be due for a cleaning.

Prevent Pests

If you have lots of lint in your dryer, your duct hood flap won’t close completely, letting pests like insects, mice, and birds into your home. To many animals, lint is an appealing material for a nest, and your dryer vent makes for a warm and cozy home in the winter. You could have pests in your dryer vent if you notice a very bad smell or frequent scurrying sounds. Regular cleaning will help keep pests from nesting, defecating, or dying in your dryer vent.
