Were you aware that dirty dryer vents can impact the safety of your home significantly? If your dryer cannot properly vent, the heat and fumes build up and could easily start a fire. It does not take long for the flammable lint in your system to catch flames, which could easily spread through your home and cause damage and injury.
Along with this, obstructions in your vents can lead to carbon monoxide backing up into your home. This colorless, odorless gas is very dangerous and can be deadly when not detected right away. Avoid exposure at all costs by investing in regular maintenance for your gas appliances and by purchasing carbon monoxide detectors for your home.

Signs of Dirty Dryer Vents
So, how can you know for sure that your vents need attention? Well, first of all, if it has been over a year since your last cleaning it is always best to have a professional check things over. Annual maintenance guarantees your appliance will run as safely and as efficiently as possible month after month.
Along with this, consider how quickly or slowly your clothes have been drying. If you have to run the same load through the dryer multiple times before everything is dry, then there is definitely a problem. Most people are quick to blame the machine itself, but more often than not, the issue can be resolved with a simple cleaning.
Other signs include high temperatures in the laundry room, lint in and around the dryer, clothes being hot after drying, a strong/musty odor, and the appliance itself seeming warmer than normal. Keep your senses aware of anything that may be off, so you can have the problem addressed before more dangerous scenarios can occur.
