Vents are an important part of any dryer. When they get clogged, the dryer might not run efficiently, or it might stop working altogether. To keep your dryer in good condition remove situational clogs, get in the habit of cleaning out your dryer vents at least once a year. First, cut the power to your dryer and unscrew the dryer duct so you have clearer access. Next, clear out any lint clogs with a household tool, like an extendable brush wand, leaf blower, or vacuum extension. Once you’ve removed the extra lint, reconnect your dryer to see if it’s working properly.
