When lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct, that lint can block the flow of air and cause excessive heat build-up. When this happens it not only lowers dryer performance, cost more to run, increases wear and tear, but also puts it at risk of catching fire. Dryer lint is highly flammable and causes hundreds of house fires each year. To prevent this, dryer vents must be cleaned regularly. The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211 suggests that dryer vents be cleaned once a year.
