When a dryer starts performing poorly, taking longer to dry clothing, or overheating, people often believe it is a mechanical issue and start shopping for an entirely new dryer. At Dryer Vent Wizard, we’ve seen the baby go out with the bathwater in this way many times. In reality, the source of the problems may not be a malfunctioning appliance at all, but rather an accumulation of lint or other debris in the dryer vent line.
Professional inspection and dryer vent cleaning can bring your dryer back to life, often restoring the dryer function to its original capability. In order to keep your dryer operating a peak efficiency, manufacturers recommend that dryer vent lines are professionally cleaned once per year.
