Your clothes dryer is a huge convenience. Before dryers existed people had to hang their clothes out to dry. Here in the northwest that is not an easy thing to do. We rely on our dryers all the time to keep our clothes soft and to get them ready to wear.
So when something starts to be a little off about our dryer, we tend to notice. So have you noticed anything different about your dryer lately? There are definite signs that it might need some service. But in many cases, it could just be your dryer vent that’s causing the problems. So here’s what to look for.
Burning Smell– have you walked into your laundry room and noticed a burning smell? Or maybe your clothes kind of have a burnt smell. That means your dryer vent is dirty and needs to be cleaned.
Clothes Take Longer to Dry– if your clothes aren’t getting dry in the normal amount of time then your dryer vent is most likely clogged.
Lint Buildup on the Outside Vent Opening– if you notice any lint building up on the vent outside of your home, that means you likely have lint built up through your entire dryer vent.
A Hot Dryer– if your dryer is hot to the touch, then there is a very good chance your dryer vent is backed up and needs to be cleaned.
