I Need My Dryer Vents Cleaned, Too?

Yes! Clogged and dirty dryer vents are one of the leading causes of house fires and property loss. Most homeowners are very good about cleaning out their dryer’s lint trap, but the scary truth is that a lot of the lint and debris gets trapped inside of the dryer’s venting system. The longer the venting system, and the more turns, inclines and declines that the system has, the greater the chance of lint accumulation. And as this lint accumulates, it not only restricts airflow within the vent, it also suffocates the dryer which in turn runs hotter and longer. High heat + flammable lint? Now that’s the perfect formula for a house fire!

How Do I Know When It’s Time To Have My Dryer Vents Professionally Cleaned?

Without a professional inspection, it can be difficult to know just how dirty or clean your dryer venting system is. That’s why we highly recommend scheduling annual inspections. There are, however, some things you can look for that will let you know it might be time to give Top Hat Chimney Sweeps a call:

  • Is it taking longer for your clothes to dry? When the vent is blocked or clogged, the dryer has to work much harder in order to dry each load of laundry. In these times, you may find yourself having to run the same load of laundry twice or more just to get the moisture out.
  • Does your dryer feel hotter than usual? What about your clothes? In addition to taking longer to get the job done, clogged dryer vents and air-starved dryers get over-worked. The dryers themselves run at hotter temperatures, leaving your clothes hotter (although not necessarily dry) at the end of the dry cycle.
