Did you know that keeping your dryer vent clean from lint helps prevent overheating, improves performance, and reduces the chances of costly and deadly fires starting? There is more to dryer vent cleaning than simply pulling the little grate from out of the top of your dryer and scraping the lint off. While it may be a little time consuming, it is perfectly within the capabilities of the average homeowner. Better yet, doing it yourself will save money that can be spent on other, more important things—like taking your significant other out on the town.
Go ahead and use your dryer as normal. However, be aware that if your clothes are still not getting completely dry or the dryer itself is still running excessively hot then you need to stop using it, and call a professional repairman to examine it.
