When the temperature drops this time of year here in Minnesota, the need for professional dryer vent hose cleaning goes up. The dead of winter is when you tend to use heavy clothing and bedding to keep the cold away. While drying, an air stream will sweep through the clothes blowing the lint off these bulky fabrics, trapping it in the lint filter. In fact, the thicker the clothing, the more lint is produced. This is the reason why more lint accumulates in your dryer during winter. Lint is highly flammable and the possibility of a dryer fire breakout increases with lint buildup. In order to prevent this, we recommend dryer vent hose cleaning every two to three years by a professional dryer vent cleaning service like ours.

When you put your clothes in the dryer, how long do they take to dry? Do they take more than one cycle? A dryer’s most basic function is to push hot and moist air out of the dryer and through the hose and vent so your clothes can dry. But when the dryer vent is blocked by lint, that air has nowhere to go, so it stays in your dryer and your clothes stay damp. Not only that, but this also causes your dryer to have to work even harder. That puts more wear and tear on the machine, and it can shorten your dryer’s life span. This is a key sign now is the time to schedule dryer vent hose cleaning.
