Typically homeowners do not think about dryer vent cleaning until the dryer stops working well or overheats and burns out the heating element. Some homeowners purchase a new dryer only to find out that the new dryer works no better because the vent is clogged with lint.
Dryer vents clog with lint because particles bypass the lint screen and travel through the vent with warm moist air which clings to the walls of the duct. Lint builds up in the vent restricting airflow and increasing back pressure causing the dryer to overheat.
Dryer vent cleaning should be performed every one to three years depending on a variety of factors including: frequency of use, length of duct and number of turns in the duct.
