Tom Kraeutler asks,
Your newsletter last week had a section on dryer vent cleaning using a product called “Lint Eater” (see www.linteater.com). I looked at that, but it requires you to access the vent on the outside of the house. Since my dryer is on the second floor, I think my dryer vent goes out of the roof. Is that right? If so, how can I possibly clean it?
I have never cleaned the vent because we had a real hard time lining up the back of the dryer with the vent in the wall. If I pull it out, I’m not sure I’d be able to get it back in. Should I just not worry about it? I do clean the dryer lint filter out all the time, but I know that isn’t really enough.
