What About The Efficiency of My Dryer?
If your dryer vent is plugged up what is that doing for your efficiency? If air can not get out then it is really hard to dry your clothes. I (Nick Drake) had my ducts and dryer vents cleaned and our drying time on our electric dryer was cut in half. When they cleaned out my dryer vent the ball of lint that came out of it was about a foot in diameter when I gathered it all up. Aside from the fire hazard I could not believe how plugged up that dryer vent was and that the dryer actually worked at all. By having a clean passageway from the dryer to the outside your dryer can run more efficiently, this translates into lower energy bills, less wear and tear on your expensive dryer and less risk of a house fire.
