Cleaning Dryer Lintrap

Shocking Confessions of a Fire Hazard: Your Dryer Vent!

  • Long Drying Times: If you’ve noticed your clothes taking longer than usual to dry, it might be a red flag. A clogged vent restricts airflow, making your dryer work harder and longer.
  • Burning Smell: A persistent burning odor during your laundry routine is a clear indication that something is amiss. Don’t ignore it – investigate the source immediately.
  • Hot Exterior Dryer: Touch the outside of your dryer after a cycle. If it feels excessively hot, it could mean the appliance is working overtime due to a clogged vent.
  • Lint Around the Vent Area: Visible lint around the exterior vent is a telltale sign of a buildup inside. It’s a visible cry for help from your dryer, so don’t turn a blind eye.
  • Excessive Lint in the Lint Trap: While the lint trap catches a good amount, an unusually large quantity of lint after each load suggests an issue in the vent.
