Not long ago I sent a contractor to a rental to replace a light fixture. While he was there, the tenant mentioned the dryer was getting really hot. On further investigation, he discovered the long vent hose was almost completely blocked by lint. I knew that clogged dryer vents are a huge cause of fires. So yes, I got the dryer vent cleaned and kissed the ground that nobody died and the house didn’t burn down. I did a little internet search and attached some easy instructions on cleaning the hose vent and preventing the lint to accumulate in the first place. Check it out here.
