Cambridge Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Explains the Hot Warning Signs from the Dryer
An overheated clothes dryer is like a ticking time bomb that could explode into flames with the next load of laundry
Increased drying time, especially with jeans and towels, is usually a result of decreased airflow caused by an obstructed dryer vent system. Lint and dust are typically the culprits blocking the dryer vent system. Excess dryer lint can cause damage to the dryer and it is a major fire hazard. An overheating clothes dryer can be compared to a ticking time bomb, about to explode into flames with the next load of laundry!
Jerry McCarthy, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (www.dryerventcleaningcambridgema.blogspot.com ), explains that restricted airflow hinders dryer performance and reduces efficiency leading to higher energy bills. In addition to longer drying time, warning signs from the dryer include repeatedly stopping during a cycle, clothes being hot after a cycle and the top of the dryer hot to touch while operating.
A safety feature added to some models makes the dryer stop during a cycle if it is overheating. A clogged dryer vent will force the dryer to work harder and longer, causing it to overheat. The overheat shutoff is the dryer’s attempt to prevent a fire. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service will improve dryer performance and minimize the risk of a dryer fire.
When the laundry room is especially hot and humid when the dryer is operating or the top of the dryer is hot to touch then this is a sign of improper airflow. A clogged dryer vent, or improper dryer vent installation can lead to this problem. When clothes are hot after a drying cycle this is also a warning sign of poor ventilation.
A hot dryer and hot clothes are both warning signs of lint building up and causing a clog. Dryer Vent Wizard will do a complete dryer vent inspection to be sure it is installed correctly, using the right materials and he will make sure there are no obstructions in the system that can restrict airflow. He will also check for faulty joints and poor connections to ensure maximum efficiency.
Over 17,000 dryer fires occur each year with failure to clean dryer vents being the leading cause. By combining quality service with education, Jerry is making a positive difference in his neighborhood as he makes clothes dryers operate more safely and efficiently.
