When it comes to clothes dryers, proper ventilation means energy efficiency and reduced risk of fire.


As dryer vents become filled with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer itself to overheat. It is important to clean the dryer’s lint trap before or after every laundry cycle. If you have noticed that your dryer is running longer than it used to, you may need to have the dryer vent cleaned. If you live in a multi-family building of any sort, you may be required to have your dyer vent cleaned no less than once a year or at the very least every two years.

The dryer vent service trade is not regulated, nor is dryer vent cleaners licensed in most states. Opening a dryer vent service business requires a relatively small capital investment. Thus, virtually anyone –without education, training, experience, insurance or even a working knowledge of proper tools or equipment and hazards can become a dryer vent cleaner. Blocked dryers servicing gas dryers can cause carbon monoxide seepage into your home. If the dryer is not exhausting properly to the outdoors, carbon monoxide can back up into the home.
