When was The last Time You Had Your Dryer Vent Cleaned?
You’ve seen the pictures. Clogged dryer vents stuffed to the gills, restricting airflow and leading to overheating and potential house fires.
The benefits of a clean dryer vent are many. It ensures the dryer operates efficiently; clothing dries faster and with less energy. It reduces the amount of dust and humidity released into the home and significantly reduces the risk of dryer damage and fire.
Knowing the signs of a clogged dryer vent and when and how to intervene is essential. Tru-Clean Surface Care can help!
The U.S. Fire Administration recommends cleaning your vents at least once yearly (or more often when needed) for proper maintenance and safety. With this in mind, there are times when you may experience symptoms of clogged dryer vents. If you are experiencing any of the signs below, you may require a professional dryer cleaning.
Signs Your Dryer Vent May Be Clogged:
- Your clothes take more than one cycle to dry
- Your laundry room has a high level of humidity when the dryer has run
- Dryer vent dust is present in your laundry room
- Your dryer feels hot to the touch, or you smell a “burning smell”
- Your clothes feel extremely hot to the touch

- Excessive lint build-up around the lint trap
- You’ve never had your dryer vent cleaned
