"How do I know when to have my dryer vents cleaned"?

Dryer Manufacturers, Fire Departments, Insurance Companies, and The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission agree that annual maintenance is important.  Even with new construction, it is important to have the dryer vent system inspected by a professional. The technician will then be able to determine a good maintenance schedule.

"What are the warning signs"?

These are warning signs to let you know that there may be a potential fire hazard:

Clothes, especially towels or jeans, take a long time to dry.
If your clothing is still damp at the end of a normal drying cycle
or requires longer dryer times, then you may have a fire hazard in and around your clothes dryer.
Clothes are hotter than usual at the end of the drying cycle.
The flapper on the vent hood doesn't open when the dryer is on.

"How long should my dryer vent be"?

The maximum length of a dryer vent should not exceed 25 feet. But keep in mind that the small dryer motor is blowing wet lint around elbows in the vent. These elbows tend to accumulate lint much faster. Make sure the exhaust duct is unrestricted and free from blockage, and never exhaust a dryer into any other duct, gas vent, chimney or crawl space. To facilitate airflow the exhaust pipe should be as short as possible and have a limited number of bends.
