A clogged dryer vent can cost you money—and possibly your home.
Most homeowners never think about chimney repair beyond the occasional flue cleaning. But ignoring it can cost you big-time.

Water is one of a home’s worst enemies. A chimney is part of the home, so water is also a danger to that as well.
DRYER VENT CLEANING
According to the US Fire Administration, between 2002 and 2004 clothes dryers counted for about 15,600 reported structure fires, 15 deaths and 400 injuries annually. “Failure to clean” is the leading factor contributing to clothes dryer fires in residential buildings. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians perform exhaust duct inspections on an annual basis to ensure efficient operation of your clothes dryer system.
When was the last time you had your dryer vent cleaned? Lint and debris can build up in your clothes dryer duct causing your dryer to exhaust at less than optimum efficiency. This creates potentially hazardous conditions including carbon monoxide intrusion and the possibility for fires. If a gas clothes dryer is improperly vented or the exhaust duct itself is blocked by lint or debris, carbon monoxide can be forced back into your living space.
