T.A.C.T Dryer Vent Cleaning
Do you regularly maintain your clothes dryer?
Dryer maintenance requires more than simply cleaning the lint screen in between loads of laundry (hopefully). A very real threat to your home, health and budget, is your clothes dryer vent.
A clogged dryer vent can cause a fire hazard, health risk, and higher electrical or gas costs. It can even damage your dryer. It is essential for you to clean your dryer vent at least once a year. Warning signs of a clogged vent, include:
- Clothes take longer to dry
- The dryer is hot to the touch during operation
- Clothes are hotter than usual at the end of the drying cycle
- A musty odor is noticed in the clothing following the drying cycle
- The outside exhaust vent flapper doesn't open very much, it at all
Reduced airflow caused by lint build-up can result in your clothes dryer overheating. When this happens, the high temperature safety switch must continously cycle on and off to control the heater, which can cause them to fail prematurely.
