Posted on by Better Air Northwest

Now that the fall weather is back, you’ve probably busted out your warm clothes, thick sweaters, and oversized blankets and comforters. And that means you’re going to be making your washer and dryer work a lot harder in the coming months. 

The problem is all that extra material creates a lot more lint in your dryer vent. And what happens when you get more lint in your dryer vent? It gets clogged and that can lead to a dangerous dryer vent fire.

So what should you be looking for? If you’ve noticed your clothes are not getting dry, or are taking longer to dry, that is a common sign a clogged dryer vent. If your load size and run are the same, but your clothes are still wet, then you likely have a clogged dryer vent.

If that’s the case, then you shouldn’t wait around to get it cleaned. A clogged dryer vent can cost you money because it takes more time to dry your clothes.
