When Should I Get My Dryer Vent Cleaned?

Can you believe summer is already over and fall is starting to show its colors? It doesn’t seem possible, but it’s that time again in the Portland and Vancouver areas. As the sun prepares to go into hiding in the area a lot more often, people in the Pacific Northwest will be trading their shorts and tank tops for sweaters and hoodies.

Of course, that means your dryer will soon be working harder, and likely more often. So, with that in mind, now is the perfect time to do a little dryer maintenance and get your dryer vent cleaned. Really, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, if you haven’t had your vent cleaned in more than a year then you should get it checked out.

The best practice is to clean your dryer vent once year in order to ensure that it’s clean and void of built up debris that could represent a fire hazard. so if you haven’t had your vent cleaned in a year, or you aren’t sure the last time it was cleaned, then now is the right time to get it done.
