The following is a list of signs that it’s time to get your dryer vents cleaned:
It smells like something is burning.
Lint is extremely flammable, and if it gets too hot, it can cause a burning smell and potentially catch on fire.
Your clothes are taking longer to dry.
If your dryer vent is clogged, the drying cycle can take twice or even three times as long as it should. If your clothes are still damp at the end of a standard cycle, it’s definitely time to get your dryer vents cleaned.
It’s been more than a year since your last inspection.
Dryer vents should be inspected at least once a year to reduce the risk of fire. Pro Duct Cleaning Solutions is familiar with pretty much all dryer makes and models, and we have the equipment to do the job quickly and thoroughly.
The outside of your dryer is noticeably hotter than usual.
Your clothing will likely be hotter than usual at the end of the drying cycle as well.
You see lint around the outside vent opening of your dryer.
You’re definitely due for a cleaning if there’s so much lint around the vent opening that the outside vent is stuck.
