How Can I Tell If I Need Dryer Vent Cleaning?

- Excessive lint buildup: If you notice an excessive amount of lint in your dryer's lint trap or around the dryer, it could indicate a clogged dryer vent.
- Burning smell: A burning smell coming from your dryer is a cause for concern and could indicate a clogged dryer vent. This is because the trapped air and moisture in the vent can create a fire hazard and cause your dryer to overheat.
- Hot dryer or hot laundry room: If your dryer feels excessively hot to the touch, or your laundry room feels hot and humid, it could be a sign that your dryer vent is clogged and not allowing air to flow properly.
