When your dryer vent is blocked by lint, the air becomes trapped in your dryer keeping clothes hot and moist. It now becomes more complicated for your clothes to become dry without having to run a 2nd cycle.

According to FEMA: 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss.


A blocked dryer vent not only means increased drying time for your clothes, but it also puts your home at serious risk of a fire.

Cleaning out your dryer lint vent on the roof in Florida is important because lint buildup can create a fire hazard. Without regular cleanouts, the lint can accumulate and reduce airflow, leading to overheating and a potential fire.


Regularly cleaning out your vent will help keep your home safe and extend the life of your dryer. In Florida, the warm, humid climate can also cause lint buildup to occur more quickly, so it’s important to keep up with regular cleanouts.


Why is My Dryer Taking So Long To Dry?

If your clothes are taking longer to dry than usual, there is a good chance that your dryer vent is either clogged or partially clogged with lint. This causes a restricted flow of air through the dryer, which keeps your clothes moist and hot, leading to significantly increased time required to get clothes and towels fully dry.

How Do I Know When To Clean My Dryer Vent?

There are a few common warning signs that it’s time for a dryer vent cleaning. You may notice longer drying times, a hotter-than-usual surface area, increased lint buildup, and a burning smell. Any of these is an indication to make sure you get your dryer vent professionally cleaned.

Do My Dryer Vents Need to be Cleaned Every Year?

Yes, because lint buildup and clogged dryer vents can lead to a buildup in your duct system, which can, in turn, lead to an increased risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. Having a professional dryer vent cleaning performed annually will go a long way in helping you maintain a safe and healthy environment and protect your property investment.

What's The Difference Between A Dryer Vent and a Dryer Duct?

A dryer duct is the portion of the system that runs through the house or building to exhaust the dryer’s air. The dryer vent is the portion that connects to the vent hood situated at the rear of your dryer.
