Signs it’s Time to Call for Dryer Vent Cleaning
You can’t exactly see inside your dryer vents unless you pull your dryer out from the wall and open up the ventilation duct. So how else can you tell if your dryer vents need to be cleaned?
Here are some signs that you need to clean your dryer vent:
- Your dryer becomes extremely hot to the touch when running
- Your room becomes much warmer than normal when the dryer is running
- Clothes take much longer than normal to dry
- You have noticed a burning smell when the dryer is running
- The dryer has automatically shut down
Some sophisticated dryers may even have a warning light or error code to warn you that dryer vent cleaning is needed. If you see this, don’t ignore it!
How Does Dryer Vent Cleaning Work?
Over time, lint and other flammable debris can become trapped in the ventilation system, impeding the passage of warm air through the vents. After enough accumulation, the system can overheat, resulting in the ignition of the lint.
Dryer vent cleaning is a simple yet essential home maintenance task to protect against this potential threat. When you call Mr. Appliance of Baytown, we will utilize special tools to force air inside the vents in your walls and thoroughly eliminate any jammed debris. All work is completed neatly and cleanly, without leaving any mess behind, and usually takes no more than 30 minutes. It’s truly a quick and painless service!
