Codes may vary depending on building location. Ask your local building inspector and health department. Small vents require annual or bi-annual cleaning, while six-inch vents or longer need monthly cleaning.

You have to clean the vents as much as possible. They will come out and check this most often and will site you if they are not properly cleaned. You have to post and keep good documentation of the process add dates that you did the cleaning so there will be no problems.
