Clothes Dryer Vent Cleaning in Joliet, New Lenox, Plainfield, IL

The refrigerator was running continuously so I pulled out the brush and cleaned the coils. It was loaded with lint, dust and more. Same was true about my clothes dryer vent cleaning.

You’d think the clothes dryer screen would catch all the lint, but that is not so. Remove the lint screen and clean the dryer itself with a long handle brush and vacuum. You’ll be surprised how much lint got through. Then there is the vent hose from the dryer to wall and the wall to outdoors.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission released a safety report called Overheated Clothes Dryers Can Cause Fires. It states in the report to “check the dryer vent and exhaust vent periodically to ensure that exhaust air is escaping.”

7 signs of a dirty or clogged dryer vent.

  1. Clothes dryer takes longer to dry, even a 2nd cycle.
  2. Clothes come out of the dryer very hot.
  3. Find very little lint on the dryer lint screen.
  4. Dryer stops during a cycle.
  5. Your clothes have a moldy smell.
  6. Dryer is hot to the touch while running.
  7. You find lint on your clothing.

“Improper dryer vents are a much bigger and more common safety problem” according to Consumer Reports.

Clogged dryer vents costs more to operate, shortens dryer life and even cause a fire.
