Dryer vents are an often-overlooked part of home maintenance. After you clean your lint filter, it’s easy to assume that there’s no other buildup from running your dryer. However, dryer vents can build up excessively and cause serious issues. Whether it’s the fire hazard posed by lint in the line or the degradation of your appliance’s efficiency, the risks are real.

Left unattended, this will become a serious fire hazard, that’s worth fixing now.
