A clogged dryer vent is one of the most commonly overlooked fire hazards in a home. While it may be obvious that dryer exhaust problems will increase your utility bills, it’s important to know they also create a very real fire hazard. The U.S. Fire Administration reports more than 15,000 dryer fires every year. A blocked dryer vent poses a risk of improper ventilation of carbon monoxide gas and potential mold growth in lint build up. You can protect your home and family from that threat with a regular dryer vent cleaning.

- Dryer shuts off before cycle time is up
- The top of the dryer is hot to the touch while operating
- The clothes in the dryer have moldy smell to them.
