How often should I clean my dryer vent?
It’s recommended by the insurance industry every 1-3 years for increased efficiency and to reduce one of over 15,000 reported dryer fires a year. In the last 5 years we have been cleaning over 1000+ dryers a year as insurance companies are starting to require that apartment and villas have their dryers cleaned every 1-3 year cleaning to reduce issues.
An indication that your dryer vent needs cleaning is when it is taking a long while to dry a load of clothes and the top of the dryer is getting hot. We only use a vacuum and low velocity nozzles to clean. Rotary brushes should not be used to clean dyer vents as they tear holes in the flexible hose or pull apart metal hose in walls and simply create more problems.
