Only once when our clothes dryer kept running and not drying a damn thing did I think about the dryer vent and then it was only the foil hose at the back of the dryer.I replaced the nasty thing full of wet lint and thought we were good for a while.

Not sure who to call to clean the vent I started reading on the web how a clogged dryer vent is the number one cause of household fire.

Then about how much wasted energy is used when the dryer is running all the time.I took one look at the position of the clothes dryer and realized that if we had a fire I doubted if I could have gotten to my daughters in time.

Our home was built in 1987 and we love it, but never considered the length of the dryer vent and the duct work involved.I guess neither did the builder of our home.

From my research I found that many homes in Houston, Texas and the surrounding communities were built in the same fashion and still are today.The position of the clothes dryer was for aesthetic and cosmetic purposes mainly for the easy of use for a busy family, but not for safety.

Now I get our dryer vent cleaned at least every six months.Most experts say it should be done once a year but with two daughters, three labs, and a pool we do a lot of laundry.My concern is that most people are as unaware as I was in the beginning.
