✔ Very hot dryer. Have you ever notice that your clothes is very hot at the end of a cycle or the dryer is very hot to touch? That is absolutely a warning sign which means that the vent is not exhausting properly. If your system is blocked, it’s not only wastes energy, but it can also be the cause of the heating element and blower in the dryer to wear out sooner.
✔ You’ll surely notice a burning smell. Do you smell a burning odor whenever you run your dryer? Lint is very flammable and it can build up in your exhaust tube, lint trap and even in the drum casing. If unintentionally gets too hot, it can catch a fire, causing the burning smell. If this happen, discontinue the use of your dryer immediately and have it inspected as soon as possible.
✔ It takes a longer time drying your clothes. When your dryer vent is blocked, the drying cycle can be double or triple in time. You’ll observe that your clothes are not really or completely dry at the end of a regular cycle. A dryer is made to push out the hot moist air for your clothes to dry. If your vent is clogged by lint, the air will stay in your dryer maintaining your clothes feel hot and moist. And when it now takes twice long to dry clothes, your dryer runs longer, putting more wear and tear on it and therefore causing the machine’s life in half.
✔ The vent hood opens inappropriately. One of the sign that you’re due for a cleaning: You can almost see lint or debris just around your dryer hose or outside vent opening, or the duct hood flap doesn’t open as it is made to do so. An outside vent that doesn’t open when the dryer is running means air flow has been constrained due to a lint buildup.
✔ Your last inspection has been longer than a year ago. Dryer vent ducts should be inspected and cleaned at least once every year to lessen the risk of fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
