Clothes Dryer Vent Cleaning.

Recommended Posts

Something a lot of people don't think about is cleaning their dryer vents out at least once a year.

Sunday, my next door neighbor came running outside because his house was going up in flames from a lint fire.

It happened quickly. The house now has to be rebuilt.

This of course made me remember that I haven't cleaned mine in forever. I immediately ordered a cleaning kit from Amazon to do the job.

Looks fairly simple to do.

Just wanted to post this here to remind people how important this is. One look at how fast his house went up in flames was all the motivation I needed.

I was actually scared to dry my clothes later that day.

EDIT: another motivation....after cleaning, your clothes dry a lot quicker!

Do you have a hose or sheet metal tubing?

I had a dryer vent fire once upon a time, but thankfully my lazy choice of simply extending the feed hoses rather than replumbing them paid off. The vent burnt, then melted through the hose, which doused the fire. It caused about 20k worth of damage in all. If it had been burnt down, I would be up 60k on it, instead of upside down by 20k on it, so maybe I am not so thankful.

Sorry about your neighbor, man. My only dryer vent story is that I found a ten dollar bill in mine while cleaning it out once. I was pretty excited until my teenage son reminded me that it was my money in the first place, so I hadn't really "gained" anything. Needless to say, I didn't buy hum any ice cream with it.

that should be easy to clean. I would think those hoses (with wires inside) would be more difficult to clean, and also may collect the lint more.
