Is your dryer vent clogged or otherwise obstructed? A number of people may brush this off as nothing more than a slight difficulty, but in fact it is a serious hazard that places you and your family’s life at risk.

Based on the Federal Crisis Administration Company (FEMA), there were two,900 dryer-related household fires claimed to U.S. fire departments between 2008 and 2010. These fired have been accountable for five fatalities, in excess of 100 injuries, and a few $35 million worth of home injury. The one most typical trigger of dryer-related dwelling fires was clogged and/or soiled dryer vents.

Signs that the dryer vent is clogged could include:

  • Clothes remain damp just after coming out in the dryer.
  • Inside of your dryer is unusually warm (heat is normally fatigued as a result of the vent).
  • You scent the odor of burning cloth once your clothes dryer is managing.
  • Lint and material particles covering the duct hood.
  • You have not cleaned your dryer vent in in excess of a calendar year.

When lint and particles build-up within the dryer hose and duct, it can restrict the circulation of incredibly hot air and gasses - air that is certainly generally fatigued from dryer to outside the house. The continued utilization of a garments dryer having a clogged exhaust vent can subsequently end result inside of a hearth. That's why it’s crucial for homeowners to routinely examine and clean their vents.

You can find several different factors that will engage in a job while in the clogging of the dryer vent, among which is failure to clean the lint entice. No matter whether you possess a top-loader or front-loader, you ought to clean the lint filter ahead of every single load of garments. Filters do a fantastic occupation as catching the vast majority of lint, but failing to clean it'll result in a few lint building its way past the filter and in to the exhaust vent.

Another common cause of the clogged dryer vent is goods falling in to the lint entice. It’s not uncommon for family members members to place the contents in their pants pockets along with the washing machine next to the lint lure. If gum wrappers, cash, keys or other objects fall in to the lint trap, it could get sucked in to the vent, the place it blocks the gas and air from exhausting properly.


A superb guideline is always to clean your dryer vent at the very least after a year. Protecting a clean dryer vent will tremendously lessen the chance of dryer-related home fires even though enhancing the success and performance of one's garments dryer.
