Dryer vent need to be thoroughly and professionally cleaned on a regular basis to keep your dryer running effectively. But did you know that there are also safety and overall cost benefits associated with a clean dryer vent as well? Today we discuss four benefits of dryer vent cleaning, and how you can experience short-term and long-term advantages to your appliances.


As was noted above, the dirtier a dryer vent is, the harder its adjoining dryer has to work. The harder a dryer has to work, the more wear and tear it will suffer.

In order for your dryer to run optimally, you should have your dryer vent cleaned at least once yearly. If you have a larger-than-average household (for example, more than 5 people), you might want to consider a cleaning every six to nine months.

The more lint that a dryer vent collects, the less efficiently the dryer will run. Sure, it will still get the job done, but it will take much more energy in order to do so.

But it’s not only wasting energy. It will take more time as well. In fact, in some cases, it could prevent clothes or bedding from being dried fully in a single cycle. This may force you to monitor your dryer carefully and run it in quick succession—for if you fail to do so, your clothes and bedding may take on a musty odor and dingy appearance.

Don’t want to monitor your dryer for several hours straight? No problem. Just have your dryer vent cleaned instead, and you’ll be able to forget about your wash load until the end of the day.


Every time your clothing is thrown into the dryer, it loses a small fraction of its quality. This is because heat deteriorates the small fibers within the clothing, causing it to become stretched and worn.

Now, there isn’t much you can do to prevent this from happening (short of foregoing a dryer entirely) but there is something you can do to slow down the process. Namely, you can clean your dryer vent on a regular basis.

As was noted above, a dirty dryer vent makes for an inefficient dryer. An inefficient dryer has to run longer than an efficient dryer. So, when clothing gets thrown into an inefficient dryer, your clothes are subject to more wear and tear per drying session. In other words, they are meeting an early demise.

The fix is simple. Just have your dryer vent cleaned. Your local handyman can help you with the task.

Your clothes will dry faster.

By cleaning it, you will notice a significant improvement with the amount of time it takes to dry your clothes. With moist, hot air caught insider your dryer drum, the extra time it takes to dry your clothes has a negative impact on your system, your clothes, and the lifespan on both.

Your dryer will last longer with less repairs.

Dryer vent cleaning increases the lifespan of your dryer. When there is lint or other obstructions stuck within your vent, it generates wear and tear on your appliance. This will cause parts to fail and prematurely shortens the duration of your dryer. If you want your dryer to last as long as possible, regularly cleaning your dryer vent helps that happen.
