- Remove Lint from Dryer Venting
In addition to cleaning the dryer lint filter before/after each load, you also need to remove lint buildup from your dryer’s venting at least once a year. We recommend using a special dryer cleaning brush or long vacuum attachment to clean it out. Lint buildup in dryer venting is an extreme fire risk and can lead to problems with the dryer itself.
