How often should I clean out my dryer exhaust vent duct?

Dryer exhaust vent ducts (the big silver metal duct in back of dryer that leads to wall) should be checked once per year. Even if you regularly clean out the lint trap in the dryer, lint and debris build-up can still occur through the dryer exhaust and will build up in the exhaust vent duct. This duct should be cleaned out when inspected to avoid any potential fire hazards.
