Sears does not offer dryer vent cleaning as part of any yearly service and maintenance agreement. Sears offers dryer vent cleaning as a separate service that can be scheduled at the customer's convenience.
Keeping dryer vents clean is important to maintaining the safety and efficiency of a dryer. Blocked vents can cause drying times to increase, using more energy and becoming a fire hazard. Sears checks the dryer vents during yearly maintenance check ups to ensure the dryer is performing at optimum levels and within safe limits. If the vents need cleaning, a separate service call can be scheduled at that time.
