People don’t really hang their washing out anymore; they haven’t the option sometimes but dryers can take a load from the washing machine and dry everything very quickly. They operate at a high temperature and extract the moisture from the clothes to form humidity which is expelled out of the dryer vents into the air outside.
Dryer installation is fairly straightforward but maintenance is still important. The first sign of a problem is when a load does not completely dry in a single cycle. That is because the humidity is unable to escape due to blockage in the dryer vents. The result can be the humidity reverting to water which gathers in the low points of the flexible ducts and can leak out into the room causing condensation. Condensation can create problems both structurally, mold and wood damage, and to health. It is an altogether bad environment to have condensation and mold, not the atmosphere anyone would want.
As soon as there is any sign that clothes are not dry you need to call us because any blockage needs to be cleared. There are many things that can block dryer vents including remarkably rodents and birds’ nests! They can get into the dryer vents where there is damage in the flexible venting. We will examine and fix any loose seals and joints as well as attend to any damage.
One thing that can help to cause a blockage in the dryer vents and also pose another threat is the lint that comes off clothes. Any lint that stays in the drum can be cleaned but some is drawn down the dryer vents and attaches itself to the vent walls. It can catch fire; if the dryer has a pilot light that is an immediate help. It is far from common but there are plenty of instances of lint catching fire. It is not unusual for someone to leave a dryer running and going out. After all the dryer will switch off when the cycle is complete. They can come back to a shock.
We will clean the dryer vents and advise you on how to check on things in the future; where to find any lint and how often to look at the dryer vents to see that everything is alright. It is too easy to assume that modern appliances need no attention whereas repair and maintenance done regularly will keep those appliances working efficiently.
