Dryer Vent System Inspection and Cleaning - The Full Guide

dryer Vent Cleaning Guide

What is dryer vent cleaning?

Dryer vent cleaning involves the removal of accumulated dryer lint and debris in the vent. Over time, these vents can get blocked, restricting proper ventilation for your dryer. 

A blocked dryer vent can cause serious damage: fire or water damage.

Fire Damage

The primary cause of fires in residential buildings is the failure to clean dryer vents. According to reports from the US Fire Administration, there are over 12,700 dryer fires each year, leading to 15 fatalities, 300 injuries, and $88 million in property loss annually.

Water Damage

Water damage occurs when the dryer vent is blocked, and the dryer heats up while 

drying wet clothes, accumulating water. Although this is a common issue, it is often 

overlooked and incorrectly attributed to other causes. The result is rust, humidity, and mold. Exposure to accumulated water can also cause damage to the dryer.
