Washers and dryers were once items kept in the basements of homes but have become increasingly common fixtures in bedrooms, hallways, and closet spaces. The result is that the piping used for ventilation of the heat of dryers have become more complicated, taking twists and turns to move throughout the structure of a home to get to the ceiling. Over time, lint gets caught in these pipes, clogging the system. Without a dryer vent cleaning service to clean pipes of dryer lint, air flow may become restricted, causing the heat within these pipes to reach up to 300 degrees.
