Signs of a Clogged Dryer Vent
Generally, dryer vent cleanings are recommended on an annual basis but may be required more frequently depending on your dryer’s level of usage. There are many telltale signs of a clogged dryer vent. For example, your vent is clogged if your clothes take longer than normal to dry or come out excessively hot. Clogged vents also create burning smells or other odors emanating from your dryer and an excessive amount of lint in the trap or on your clothes. Finally, clogged vents overheat your dryer and cause the vent hood to close during a cycle.
Dryer Vent Cleaning Benefits
Regular dryer vent cleanings have a variety of benefits. Clogged vents are not only major fire hazards, but also cause your dryer to operate much less efficiently. When your dryer works more efficiently, your energy bill significantly decreases. After a vent cleaning, your clothes also dry faster. Additionally, regular vent cleanings extend the life cycle of your dryer and protect from fire, smoke, and pollutants. When a professional from C&C Chimney cleans your dryer vent, you will notice benefits immediately!
