Dryer Vent Cleaning
Always remember, you should have your dryer vent cleaned out every year, depending on how much you use it. You need to make sure you check it every few months to ensure that it is not full of lint or blocked. You can usually tell if the vent is blocked if your dryer takes longer to dry your clothes or if your clothes are still damp. You can try to clean it out with a shop vac for shorter ducts. Short ducts lead directly outside the home.
Always remember to turn off the dryer if you have to run out of the house, never let it keep running. You don't want a potential fire hazard to happen, especially, when you're not home.
