A clothes dryer is one of the essential appliances in our homes. However, regardless of how helpful it is, most homeowners do not give it the care it deserves. When neglected, this unit can be a fire hazard hence the need to accord it special care to maintain it. One of the central and careful treatments you can give to the dryer is by ensuring its vent does not get clogged. So, how do I know if my vent is clogged?

Clothes Take Long to Dry

Long drying times are the first and most obvious signs of a clogged dryer vent. When the vent becomes blocked, there will be no smooth moisture and airflow out of the vent. The moisture will be trapped in your clothes, even if the machine seems to be working. Therefore, your clothes will take too long to dry. You will end up with warm and moist clothes despite running the machines in the recommended timers. If you remove your clothes from the dryer and they feel damp, then it’s a sign the vent is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Contact a professional dryer vent cleaner to get the problem resolved.

Dryer Emits Burning Odor When Running it

If you notice that your unit emits a burning smell when using it, then it is a sign that all is not well, and your dryer vent may be clogged. A clogged dryer vent causes the entire unit to work extra hard to maintain its performance. This leads to overworking, which results in the burning smell. At this point, if the unit is not taken care of, it can end up causing a fire in your house. That is why you should hire professional dryer vent cleaning services to get the problem resolved before it becomes catastrophic.

Lint Build-Up Around the Vent

Have you noticed there is a build-up of lint and debris around your dryer vent? This signifies that all is not well with the inside of the vent, and it may be blocked. When you encounter such, contact a professional in dryer vent cleaning. The experts will inspect your unit and recommend the best course of action to keep your appliance in the best shape.

The Unit Becomes Hot When Running it

If your dryer vent suddenly starts to feel hot when running it, then its time you got it checked by a professional for a possibility of clogging. This also applies if the clothes are scorching to touch when removing them from the unit. You should contact an expert in dryer vent cleaning immediately because the unit is usually on the verge of igniting and causing a fire outbreak.

Haven’t Cleaned it for A Long Time

Even if you don’t experience any of the above signs, but then you can’t remember when you got it last cleaned, then there are high chances it is clogged. Don’t wait until your unit breaks down. The cost of handling a clogged dryer vent is low compared to replacing or repairing it when it fails because of being neglected. Contact a professional in dryer vent cleaning today to prolong the lifespan of your unit.
