Your dryer vent is an important part of your home. Without this vent, you wouldn’t be able to dry your clothes. You’d be going back in time and hanging wet clothes around your house or on a clothesline in the backyard. And you don’t want to do that. Your dryer vent may not be in a very prominent place, but you still need to think about it and take care of it.
So many homeowners forget to have their dryer vent regularly cleaned, and so many clogged dryer vents waste energy, money, and time. Don’t let this be you.

The problems that come with a clogged dryer vent
If you don’t take the time or spend the money to have your dryer vent cleaned, there can be some serious consequences. Clogged dryer vents are full of dirt and dust. If your dryer vent is clogged with dirt and dust, you’re wasting energy, money, and time. And a clogged dryer vent is a fire hazard.
A clogged dryer vent means that it takes longer to dry your clothes. Not as much hot air is able to go through the vent, and your clothes are left damp after the cycle ends. Your dryer also has to work harder to run in the first place. Both of these factors lead to wasted energy. Your dryer wastes energy by working harder and when you have to redry damp clothes.
When your dryer wastes energy, you waste money as well. If you’ve noticed higher energy bills, your dryer may be to blame. The more often you run your dryer and the harder it works, the higher your energy bills will be. To lower the cost of your energy bill, have your dryer vent cleaned regularly. Now it will work efficiently and stop wasting energy.
You waste time when you have to run your dryer again because your clothes aren’t dry. Now you have to wait longer to change the load and it takes longer to finish cleaning all of your clothes. This is extremely annoying and may be fixed when you have your dryer vent cleaned.
When your dryer vent is clogged, it could catch on fire. This scenario isn’t as likely to occur as the other problems, but you should definitely have your dryer vent cleaned regularly to avoid this. Obviously, you don’t want a fire hazard sitting around your home when you can easily have it fixed.

When should you have your dryer vent cleaned?

Here are some ways to tell when your dryer vent needs to be cleaned:
If you notice any of these problems, it’s time to clean your dryer vent, even if it’s been less than a year since your last cleaning.

You’ll be grateful you did when you no longer have to redry clothes and your machine isn’t at risk of catching fire.
How to choose a dryer vent cleaning company
There are likely several dryer vent cleaning companies in your area. With so many choices, it can be difficult to know who to trust with your clothes dryer.
Before hiring a company, make sure that you’ll be getting good value for your money. You can do this by asking a lot of questions and comparing prices, services, and reviews. It’s a good idea to find a couple of companies and compare them with each other as well. Once you’ve found the one you like, it’s time to give them a call or book an appointment online.
When comparing prices, make sure that you take lots of factors into account. If you find a company that’s more expensive than others, ask yourself why. Do they provide better service? Are there any other perks to working with them? If the company does provide extra services, guarantees, or perks, then maybe paying a little extra now is worth it. If you can’t find anything to differentiate this company from others, then it may be best to search for a cheaper price.
Remember that the cheapest price usually doesn't mean the best service. If you find a company that’s much cheaper than most others, do the same exercise as above. Ask yourself if this company offers fewer services, has lower reviews, or if there are any red flags. If everything seems similar to other companies, maybe this low price is simply a great deal. In that case, jump on it. If there are red flags, it’s best to pay a little more money and ensure better service.
When comparing services, something to pay attention to is the company’s expertise. If you want your dryer vent cleaned, but the company specializes in home cleaning or washer maintenance, then chances are that they can’t help you. If they do have dryer vent cleaning listed as a secondary service, chances are you can find another company that is an expert in dryer vent cleaning rather than just being an add-on.
Also, compare the quality of the services offered. You can do this by asking around, reading reviews, and talking to a representative from the company. If most people are happy with the service they’ve received, chances are that you will be too.
When comparing reviews, make sure not to let a few bad reviews turn you away from a company entirely. Reviews are very subjective and should be taken with a grain of salt. If you find a company that has mainly great reviews and a few bad ones, then chances are that you’ll have a good experience with that company. If you find a company with mainly bad reviews, however, then you should keep looking.
Reviews are a great way to get an idea of a company’s customer service, timeliness, attitude, and more. You can find reviews online or by asking around.
