A clogged dryer vent can cause excess moisture in the air which can lead to mold and mildew. If gone undetected this can become an expensive drywall repair. Having your dryer vents professionally cleaned will ensure efficiency and reduce risk for build up.
When you have a clogged dryer vent, the air inside of your dryer can not escape. If you have ever had your dryer turn off and the clothes are still wet, you may have a clogged dryer vent. If your dryer vent is cleaned regularly, the dryer can remove moisture from your clothes, which will shorten your dry times and save you money.
