When Should I Clean?
Depending on how much you use your drying appliance, you will want to have it cleaned and thoroughly inspected one every 3 to 12 months. For the bigger households that manage no less than one or two loads of laundry every day need to schedule periodic inspections.
That is needed to help them determine how long they can go between one dryer vent cleaning service and another. Should you do laundry a lot less frequently, scheduling dryer vent cleaning once each year is just about enough in most cases.
Bear it in the rear of your mind that even when you clean your lint trap frequently, not all the lint for your laundry is ejected from the system. As a matter of fact, only some 25 percent of the lint from all your laundry is collected by the so-called lint trap that you would slide out of the front of your dryer.
What that means is: the rest is building up in the dryer vent system, restricting airflow and making your dryer to work twice as hard to achieve the same results.
