To those who have a clothes dryer that isn't vented directly outside, if your dryer has a jointed metal pipe or a flexable foil pipe connected; please be sure to take it loose and vacuum out all the lint accumulation. This is one of the most important things you can do to insure the safety of yourself,family members and your beloved pets.As pet owners we tend to do more laundry so the amount of lint and pet hair can really build up quickly.
Thanks for the reminder! At my condo we had them all cleaned periodically but I just bought a house and I have no way of knowing if the previous owners ever cleaned the vent. I'm adding this to my "to do" list thanks to you!
