How Do I Know My Vent Needs Cleaning?

Often we don’t even think about are dryer vent until the little red light comes on and says “vent clogged”. That is usually referring to the pullout vent that you clean yourself. You should be cleaning that particular vent each time you do a load of clothes. But there are some signs the main dryer vent should be cleaned. These include:

  • Clothes taking too long to dry.
  • Surface getting hotter.
