The dryer in your home is one of the most necessary items in your laundry room, it dries your clothes after all! Without this essential piece of the laundry puzzle you will be without fresh cloths, and extremely irritated. No one wants to go to the laundromat because their dryer is not doing the job it was meant to do. More often than not, your dryer starts to malfunction because of a buildup of lint in the vents. Everyone who has done laundry is aware of this problematic fiber when they clear out the lint trap on their dryer at home. People are generally unaware that this stuff is building up in their vents, and choking up the entire system.

People often overlook the outside dryer vent. This is where all that hot, moist air from your dryer is expelled into the outside world. There is often a grate or screen fitted to the outside of your home to keep things like birds and other animals out of your vents. This is great, but these screens or grates are also very good at collecting lint as well. This accumulation is no different that one inside the dryer vent, and will limit the amount of air that can pass through the system and out of your home. It will only make your dryer work harder, and increase the time it takes to dry your laundry.
These outside vents are generally located in hard to reach places. We generally have to use ladders because they are on a second floor. When using a ladder one always runs the risk of injury, and caution should be used always. Staying safe can be difficult once you are at the top, and have to unscrew vents and grates to clear out lint and other debris.

Do not try to clear your outside vent by yourself and let us deal with the heights!
Another downside to a clogged outer vent is the collection of water vapor on the outside of your home. This water will build up during the cold Minnesota winter and freeze. This can create and ice patch under the vent, and even get in between the siding and slowly start to separate it. This costly fix can be easily avoided by cleaning out your dryer vents.
