When should you have your dryer vent cleaned?
Should be done annually, however, telltale signs that the dryer vent needs cleaning is that clothes take longer and longer to dry. When it takes 2-3 cycles to dry a load of towels, it’s time to check things out. Another indication of poor or obstructed venting is that the dryer’s external cabinet or it’s control area is hotter than usual. If that happens, disconnect the dryer and call Hot Fuzz!
