Do I need to have dryer vents cleaned?

We find dryer vent cleanings are not done as often as they should be and wanted to give a little more information and what the purpose of it is. As we know our dryer uses warm air to dry clothes therefore if your dryer vent to the outside becomes blocked the warm air will not be able to force moisture like it is supposed to do in order to work properly. The result will be trapped moisture that takes more heat energy to evaporate and can actually cause fires and other issues. We recommend having your dyer vent professionally cleaned at least once per year. There is also a few signs you can watch for that may mean your dryer vent is clogged.
• Clothing are very hot to the touch
• Taking longer to dry clothes
• Burning Smell
