Dryer And Dryer Vent Cleaning
Is your dryer taking twice as long to get through one load of laundry? Do you need to do an extra cycle just to get your fabrics dried up and ready for folding? If you answered yes to any of the previous questions, you may have a dirty and clogged dryer vent in your hands which needs professional attention.
Having lint in dryer vents is not unusual. Whenever you use your dryer, lint from the clothes and other fabrics that are being dried is sucked by the fan motor of the dryer and settles inside the vent hose. As time goes by, the build up gets thicker and this affects your dryer’s performance.
Consider these warning signs of dangerous lint build-up in your dryer:
- Clothes take longer and longer to dry
- Clothes don’t fully dry
- Clothes are hotter than normal at the end of the drying cycle
- The outside of dryer gets very hot
- The outside exhaust vent flapper doesn’t open much indicating low exhaust velocity
- Laundry room becomes more humid than it is usually
- Burnt smell is evident in the laundry room
These are just some well-known symptoms and recognizing them could protect you and your family from the dangers of an unhealthy maintenance routine. To find out more about dryer vent fires and how you can prevent them, watch this video from NBC’s The Today Show…
