Have You Cleaned Your Dryer Vent Lately?

Spring is finally here and that means the warmer weather will be here soon, as well. It takes a little longer to get there in the Pacific Northwest, but it’s coming. And that means all the winter blankets, coats and sweaters will soon be packed away for a few months so you can break out the warm-weather clothing.

But there’s something important to remember when you put all that winter gear away. Over the past several months you’ve been putting your dryer through a lot more work. So chances are your dryer vent has some built up lint and debris that could be blocking the airflow.

And that could be very dangerous. If you haven’t had your dryer vent cleaned in a while then now is the time to get it done. Dryer vent fires are becoming more common because people simply forget about them. According to the National Fire Protection Association, there are about 15,500 dryer vent fires every year in the U.S.
