Hi! I’m David Lupberger with sevicemagic.com. Today, we’re going to talk about the importance of cleaning your dryer vent. Now most people, the extent of their dryer cleaning’s go and they take out that screen and they pull out that lint. And that’s really about all that they do. But I’ve got to tell you, there is a couple other things I’m going to recommend you’ll check. If you find that your dryer isn’t running efficiently, that it’s taking longer and longer to dry, it could be the connection behind the dryer that’s not clear or the exterior vent. Let’s go and look. As you can see we’ve pull the dryer away from the wall. And this next step, we’re going to check the connection of this vent line to both the dryer and the exterior vent. If this is lose on either side then both lint and hot air is escaping into the room where your dryer’s housed. Now, the last part in this process is to check the exterior vent so the dryer through that vent line is connected to this exterior vent. And what want to do is there’s usually a little cover as you reach in and make sure there is nothing obstructing that vent line. Another good reason to clean that lint dryer is it can be a source of house fires. Number one, clean your dryer vent regularly. Number two, don’t run your dryer when you’re not at home. So, make sure this is clean, the connection to the exterior vent is clean, and your screen is clean. If your dryer is still isn’t running efficiently, it’s time to call a repair person.
