As summer slowly comes to an end, most exterior maintenance tasks have been looked after. Windows have been washed, fresh coats of paint have been applied, and with the exception of maybe one last gutter cleaning before winter, most of us probably feel like we can close the book on summer maintenance projects. One task that often gets overlooked is dryer vent cleaning, as it may not be as obvious. Clogged dryer vents can cause major problems in condo or rental properties, and fixing issues once they arise is extremely costly compared to conducting preventative maintenance.
Common issues resulting from poor dryer vent maintenance include:
- Loss of efficiency and longer drying times
- Dryer overheating and potential fire hazard
- Heavy condensation in dryer ducts, resulting in mold and potential leaks
An easy way to avoid these issues and keep an eye on any irregularities within the vent system is to schedule annual dryer vent cleaning as part of your regular exterior maintenance program.
Vents can be cleaned from outside only, or from the inside and outside (suite access is required) for a more thorough cleaning.
