Reasons to Schedule a Dryer Vent Cleaning, Brooklyn, New York

If you own a dryer, dryer vent cleaning is an essential part of your home’s maintenance. Lint tends to collect in this area (even with a lint trap in place) and can clog the vent or even become a fire hazard. Below are just a few reasons you should bring in an HVAC technician to do the job properly.

Signs You Need Dryer Vent Cleaning

If your vent is filling with lint, you’ll begin having a number of problems related to your dryer. Here are a few of the signs it’s time for a cleaning.

  • Clothes Take Too Long to Dry: If each normal-sized load is taking over an hour to get dry, lint blocking the vent is a probable cause. The dryer relies on the vent to get rid of moist air, so if it’s closed, the moisture stays trapped and the clothes dry significantly slower.

  • Dryer Vent CleaningThere’s a Burning Smell: As mentioned above, trapped lint near your dryer’s heating element is a fire hazard. If you notice a burning smell when you cycle your laundry, you urgently need to have the vent cleaned.

  • The Dryer Gets Hot: It’s normal for your dryer to warm up somewhat during its cycle. But when its vent is clogged, the trapped air can heat your machine to abnormal temperatures, potentially damaging the machine or your belongings.

Why Hire a Professional for Dryer Vent Cleaning

While it’s possible to clean out the lint yourself, it’s usually a good idea to hire an HVAC technician to do the task. The will perform a thorough job the first time to get rid of the fire hazard. In addition, a technician will bring the right tools for the job, so you won’t have to buy them yourself. Finally, an expert can let you know if they notice anything unusual about your vent or machine, potentially identifying any deeper problems you may have.
