Dirty dryer vents are a fire hazard and can cause your clothes to smell bad. Luckily, cleaning your dryer vent is a quick and easy process. In this post, we will show you how to clean your dryer vent using a vacuum cleaner and a ladder.
Disconnecting the power is the first step in cleaning your dryer vent. For gas dryers, you'll need to shut off the gas valve and pull the dryer out so you can access the vent duct at the rear. Be careful when moving a gas dryer - you don't want to disturb the gas connection too much and cause a gas leak. This is crucial if your dryer is old with old connectors. Next, you'll need to disconnect the duct (usually a flexible foil pipe) from the wall vent and the dryer vent. You might need a screwdriver to unscrew a metal clamp that's holding it in place.
