How do you know if you need dryer vent cleaning?

  • Are your clothes taking longer to dry than usual? 
  • Are they hot and damp instead of dry when you get them out of the dryer? 
  • Is there little to no lint on your lint screen after each load?
  • When your dryer is in use does it get hotter than normal? 

If you said yes to any of these questions then you may need your dryer vents cleaned.  

Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning

Clean dryers work better than dirty dryers. When a dirty dryer works harder it is using more energy and that means your energy bill will go up.

Dryer vent cleaning will increase the lifespan of your dryer unit, as well as increase the efficiency of your dryer.  This can save you money on your monthly utility bill.

How often should I have my dryer vents cleaned?

A good rule of thumb is to have your dryer exhaust vents inspected and cleaned by a professional at least once a year.  Call the professionals at Swails Heating and Cooling to schedule an appointment for Dryer Vent Cleaning.
