I agree. If you're only doing this a couple of times a year, ....really?

csia.org lists certified dryer exhaust technicians. Chimney sweeps often offer this service. Have the joints sealed with aluminum tape and it will cut down on the lint that escapes the vent. Cleaning the lint from inside the dryer is important as well. This is a safety issue, as many lint fires start in the dryer. Always unplug the dryer before moving it or taking the back off.

Have the sweep clean and check your fireplace while they're there. If they find any issues you'll have all summer to get them repaired. People think of chimney maintenance as a fall project, but it is really hard to find someone with time to do repairs in the fall. There are some companies that offer discounts in the spring.
