A dirty dryer vent is bad for you in more ways than you might know.

Have you noticed your dryer taking longer than usual to dry a load of laundry or getting warmer than normal?

FEMA conducted a study in 2007 and compiled and published a report titled “Clothes Dryer Fires in Residential Buildings.” View the full report here.

The study determined that:

  • Clothes dryer fires account for about 15,600 structure fires, 15 deaths, and 400 injuries annually
  • Eighty percent of clothes dryer fires in structures occur in residential buildings
  • Annually, 12,700 clothes dryer fires occur in residential buildings resulting in 15 deaths and and 300 injuries
  • “Failure to clean” is the leading factor contributing to clothes dryer fires in residential buildings
  • New home construction trends place clothes dryers and washing machines in more hazardous locations away from outside walls such as bedrooms, second floor hallways, bathrooms and kitchens

Dramatically Reduce Your Utility Bills

Every 45 minute dryer cycle can cost as much as $1, and a clogged dryer vent can cause your dryer to require up to two or more cycles to dry a load of laundry, substantially increasing your utility bill.  If your dryer takes more than 50-55 minutes to dry a load of laundry, you may have a clogged or lint restricted dryer vent. Can you afford to pay double?

How Can You Know if You Have A Dirty Dryer Vent?

Here are three symptoms that may indicate you are suffering from a clogged dryer vent:

  1. Increased drying times are one of the best indicators of a dirty or clogged vent.  If it takes more than one cycle to dry a load of clothes, especially jeans and towels, cleaning is most likely in order.
  2. If your dryer gets hot on the top of the cabinet during a drying cycle it usually means that the air flow which helps keep the dryer cool is restricted. This can be a broken vent pipe in the wall or ceiling or a clogged vent.  Also, if you open the dryer while it is operating you will find the inside of the drum which turns extremely hot.
  3. Sometimes you will notice that your clean clothes come out of the dryer smelling musty.

Do any of those include you?
