We talk about a lot about certain appliances – namely your air conditioner and furnace – here at Lee’s Air. But there’s another appliance we can help you with – your dryer!
When’s the last time you had your dryer vents cleaned? For many homeowners, the dryer vent is an afterthought. But lint can quickly build up in the trap housing, the duct, the vent and inside the dryer. Here’s the reason that’s important: Lint buildup is a major fire hazard.
So how do you know when it’s time to have your dryer vents cleaned?
- If it takes longer than normal for your clothes to dry
- The outside of the dryer is hotter than normal after use
- It smells like burning when your dryer is in use
As a general rule of thumb, it’s smart to have the vent checked/cleaned once a year. If you need your dryer vent cleaned, call Lee’s Air today!
