Laundry Lesson

Not only do clogged vents slow down drying time, they're also a potential fire hazard, so they should be cleaned at least once a year. Of course, a professional can help if you're not the DIY type, but cleaning vents is surprisingly straightforward. First, disconnect the plug and vacuum out the interior of the vent (if the unit is gas-powered, make sure to shut off the gas as well). Use soapy water to wash the inside of the tube and continue this process through to the exterior access vent outside of your home. Reattach all the parts, plug in the unit and you're good to go.
