We’ve all heard the horror stories of fires, dead birds, lint buildup, and teams of ants and rodents coming through dryer vents. Prevent this by taking a quick look each month at your external dryer vent and making sure it’s free from debris.

We love the full-closing dryer vents as they stop the flow of cold air as well as prevent entry from our outdoor friends.
