dryer vent cleaning
Keeping your dryer vent clean is important for a number of reasons which include not only energy savings but safety. A dryer works by pushing out hot, moist air so your clothes can dry. If your dryer vent to the outside becomes blocked by lint, the air will not be able to expel moisture like it was designed to do. The lint that has built up over the past few months or year affects not only the operation of your dryer vent but can also be a fire hazard.
Signs Dryer Vent Needs Cleaned:
Clothes take long time to dry
Dryer gets extra hot
Burning smell near the dryer

Lint is combustible, and when dryers can't expel hot air - inefficiency, dryer damage and fire are the result. Most dryer damage and fires could be prevented with proper vent maintenance
