Blue Ridge Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Provides Heated Warnings to Ruckersville Residents
The Wizard compares a hot clothes dryer to a ticking time bomb about to explode into flames with the next load of laundry
Increased drying time, especially with jeans and towels, is in an indication of decreased airflow. Inadequate airflow is usually the result of an obstructed dryer vent system, usually clogged with lint. 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!
Restricted airflow hinders dryer performance, reduces efficiency and leads 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 dryer vent clogged with lint or other obstructions 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.
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 (http://www.dryerventcleaningruckersvilleva.blogspot.com/) 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 15,000 dryer fires are reported each year with failure to clean dryer vent lines being the leading cause. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning reduces the risk of having a dryer fire while improving dryer performance.
