Have You Ever Had Your Dryer Vent Professionally Cleaned?
August 13, 2019 7:37am CST
Our HOA has offered us a professional dryer vent cleaning but I've never had it done. They offered it to us last year for the first time but I passed. Now I'm thinking about having it done this year. It's $99 My laundry room is on the second floor and vented out through the roof (I'm assuming) I know absolutely nothing about this but figure it's a good thing to do. I've seen that too much lint collected in the vents can cause a fire but in any house I've ever lived in I never had this done. Have you? would you ?

We have never had our dryer vent cleaned. However, my husband always inspected ours, by taking it off and vacuuming it out annually-usually on the Labour Day weekend. We both always feared a fire too, so this was his way of being proactive on that thought. I do not know if I would actually pay that much to have it done. I would take into consideration the age of your home, how long you've had your dryer hooked up, and then do a search online to see what others are saying. And go with your first instinct, otherwise you'll worry yourself sick and convince yourself that you need it.
@Marilynda1225 You're welcome. I am going to ask my husband if he's ever heard of such a service before. I just wonder if they would have enough business to keep afloat or is a lot of their work guilt-related. That was just the first thing that came to my mind, maybe I am cynicle.
