Dryer Vent Cleaning is a simple solution to many problems. Restricted airflow causes lint build-up and excessive heat can ignite materials in the dryer vent, resulting in a dryer fire. Due to this, the National Fire Protection Association recommends having your dryer vent cleaned annually. Most homeowners fail to include dryer vent cleaning on their list of yearly maintenance service calls. In 2005, the NFPA estimated that over 14,500 residential fires were caused by clothes dryer vents, causing over 440 injuries, including 14 deaths and over $207 million dollars in property damage.Here are situations when you know it is time to have your dryer vent professsionally cleaned:
*It has been OVER a year or more since the last time it was cleaned
*Your vent hood flap does not open during a dryer’s operation
*You have drying times that surpass 40-45 minutes

Place dryer near an outside wall using pop rivets, not screws to connect metal vent pipe pieces.
Clean the lint out of the exhaust pipe once a year.
