How Much Does Dryer Vent Cleaning Cost?

The U.S. Fire Administration estimates that 2,900 clothes dryer fires are reported in the United States every year. They cause approximately five deaths, 100 injuries and $35 million in property loss. Over one quarter of those fires begin with ignition of dust, lint or fiber, meaning that many of them could have been prevented by routine dryer vent cleaning.

Dryer vent cleaning won’t just remove combustible debris before it can cause a disaster. An unobstructed dryer vent also shortens laundry drying times, decreases energy consumption, extends a dryer’s lifespan, and makes clothing look better and last longer. It will even reduce the amount of dust that settles inside your home – perfect if you would like to save time cleaning.

The actual price you will pay for dryer vent cleaning depends on a few different factors, including:

  • Vent length – Cleaning a longer vent requires more time and labor
  • Vent condition – Cleaning a vent that contains damp lint or a large obstruction such as a bird nest also requires more work
  • Vent location – A vent located on a roof or second floor is more difficult to access
  • Vent angulation – A vent with multiple angles is more difficult to clean

How Often Should You Clean Your Dryer Vent?

Homeowners are advised to clean their dryer vents at least once a year. If you have a larger family or do laundry frequently, then biannual cleaning is recommended. You should have your dryer vent cleaned as soon as possible if you notice any of the following:

  • Drying a load of laundry requires more than one cycle
  • Clothing has a musty odor
  • Clothing comes out of the dryer hotter than normal
  • Dryer vent hood flap doesn’t open
  • Lint is accumulating on the floor and/or wall behind the dryer
