The U.S. Fire Administration reports that every year more than 2,900 home fires are started by clothes dryers, and the leading cause of these fires is a buildup of lint due to lack of simple maintenance on the part of the owner. Each load of laundry that passes through your washing machine and makes its way to your clothes dryer contains lint—mostly small particles of cloth and fiber that are loosened from clothing by the action of agitating water.
Here are some warning signs that dangerous lint buildup has occurred in your dryer and venting system, indicating that it needs a thorough cleaning:
• Clothes take longer to dry or don’t dry fully
• Clothes are hotter than normal at the end of the drying cycle
• Outside of dryer gets very hot
• Outside exhaust vent flapper does not open very much, indicating low exhaust velocity
• Laundry room becomes more humid than usual
• Burnt smell is evident in the laundry room
There are differences in the quality of dryer vent tubing also.
DryerFlex is far better than the standard dryer tubing most homeowners use today. Look at this video which will explain it better:
So if you are now ready to get yours inspected or cleaned Please Do. Most fireplace chimney stack cleaning companies will clean this for you if you DO NOT want to, or cannot do it yourself. It isn’t difficult but some care not to tackle on their own and that’s OK.
I have someone that I have used in the past and he does a good job and fair price as well,
