The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that dryer vents be cleaned annually to reduce the risk of dryer fires. However, if you notice that your clothes are taking longer to dry than usual or if you detect a burning smell, you may need to have your vent cleaned more frequently.
Some signs that your dryer vent may be clogged or need cleaning include clothes taking longer than usual to dry, the dryer becoming hotter than usual, a burning smell, or excessive lint or debris accumulating around the dryer vent opening. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have your dryer vent inspected and cleaned by a professional.
While it’s possible to clean your own dryer vent, it’s generally not recommended. Dryer vent cleaning requires specialized tools and knowledge, and attempting to do it yourself can be dangerous. In addition, without proper training and equipment, you may not be able to remove all the accumulated lint or debris, which can increase the risk of a fire. It’s best to leave dryer vent cleaning to trained professionals.
The duration of dryer vent cleaning depends on the size of the vent, the level of clogging, and other factors. Typically, it takes between 30 minutes to an hour for a professional to clean a dryer vent thoroughly.
