Dryer Vent Cleaning

Homeowners have reached out about their dryer vents being plugged up with bird’s nests and lint.  I actually had the bottom of a bikini in mine, and no it wasn’t mine.  Not sure how it got in there but possibly thinking there was an old dryer in our unit without the filter in it.  

This is so important for us owners to get our vents cleaned on a regular basis to prevent fires.  The owner of the photo below used Dryer Vent Wizard  and was happy with their service.  

Dryer vents should be cleaned out once a year or more ofter depending on how many loads you dry.  It is important for those owner’s who rent to make sure your guests are cleaning the lint filter every load.  Put a sign or write with magic marker on the dryer to remind guests to do this.  Also, make sure you or your management company checks the lint filter to make sure it has not been removed and is in good working comdition.

Please read what the National Fire Protection Association recommends for the dryers.
