How often should I clean my dryer vent? How often a dryer vent needs to be cleaned varies. While appliance manufacturers recomment every year, it is more common to inspect every 1-3 years. Some factors to consider:
The age of your dryer: if it is more than 10 years old it may need to be cleaned more often.
A vent that has several bends or elbows will collect more lint than a straight run.
A full size dryer has better flow than a compact or stackable dryer.
If you are using the dryer frequently, it will need to be cleaned more often.
Dryer vents that are 5 feet or fewer in length will not need to be cleaned as often as a dryer vent that has a length of 15 feet or more. The longer the vent, the more it will build up with lint.
