Dryer Vent Cleaning: Avoiding Dryer Lint Build Up for Safety, Efficiency, Air Quality

A clothes dryer can experience build-up of lint, excessively, inside the trap and screen that usually filters lint and prevents this from happening. When this occurs, it can cause symptoms that can affect, negatively, the running of the dryer and can result in a fire that is started by the lint build-up. Proper maintenance, cleaning, and regular removal of the lint in the dryer screen can prevent this from ever occurring and are recommended.

It is recommended to have a dryer duct cleaning, inspect and maintain dryer venting, and hire proper maintenance for the mechanism, available upon searching online or a Las Vegas phone book. Often, the manufacturer of the dryer will have a representative who will do a house-call maintenance session, or other department stores that sell dryers also offer maintenance engineers, who are available for house calls for washing machines and dryers.

A 1999 study, published in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPC) report indicates that dryer fires originate at the venting and along the lint trap. These areas are important to clear of lint, beyond just what you can remove from the screen.

Signs that dryer maintenance may be something to add to your to-do list include that clothes won’t dry efficiently, fully, are hotter than usual upon completion, or the dryer itself heats excessively and is overly hot to the touch. The room may also fill with extra humid air from the dryer operating less efficiently or the exhaust system on the dryer can be adversely affected.
