According to John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, dryer vents can get damaged and lead to other problems in the home. During the winter months, small animals will find the warm space inviting as they happily move in and set up housekeeping. Dryer vent cleaning service will remove this problem and eliminate one opening where pests can enter the home.”

The dryer vent cover should be replaced if the hood is cracked, surrounded by mold and moss or the caulk around it is deteriorating. This allows outdoor air into your home, causing the heat and AC unit to operate inefficiently. Repairing or replacing the dryer vent and properly sealing the opening will save money on utility bills and keep pests out.
