This may sound like a silly question but I'm really perplexed as to who to call.
We moved into our home about 10+ months ago. For the first time we have a dryer vent that goes up to the roof. We've always had vents that go right from the dryer out a wall. Very easy to clean out on a regular basis.
We bought our washer and dryer new after we moved. I regularly clean out the lint trap, sometimes twice during a load. We have two cats and a large dog so don't want any pet hair build up in the lint trap. Several months after hooking up the new dryer, we noticed that the dryer seems to be getting quite warm during a load. Truthfully I didn't think much of it at first because the temps were getting hot. More recently it seems to be getting extremely hot. I've put a floor fan in there to help but it really isn't doing much. Recently we've been noticing small clumps of lint on our front patio that we think that may be coming from the roof.
We're really concerned that there is the potential for a dryer fire so want to have a professional come out and check the vent going up to the roof. We have absolutely no clue as to who and/or what kind of company to call to clean and check it out.
Can anyone help?
