Cleaning Frequency

How Often should my dryer and vent system be cleaned?

Most manufactures recommend annual inspections for your dryer and vent system. The factors listed below contribute to a more rapid lint build-up and should be considered when determining the maintenance plan for our dryer. The variables contributing to lint build up include:

  • Number of loads dried each week
  • Total length of the venting system
  • Type of transition hose that connects the dryer to the wall
  • Number of bends in the dryer vent system
  • Pets that contribute to more lint/hair build up
  • Seams that are screwed together rather than taped
  • Type of laundry detergent use during the wash/dry process
