- More than a YEAR has passed since the last dryer vent cleaning, especially if you have a long dryer vent run, or if it vents out through your roof.
- KEEP your outside dryer vent opening covered with a ventilation cap designed for this purpose. These caps allow lint to exit, while preventing birds from nesting in the vent and causing blockages.
