Dryer fires, mold and mildew damage and excess energy waste are a few of the dangers associated with poorly vented clothes dryers
Massapequa NY – The Wizard says there are many benefits to proper dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service. The dryer functions by removing moisture during the heating of wet laundry. Essentially the moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer in the form of humidity. This humid, warm air is then vented outside through the dryer vent system if everything is working as it should.
Bob Dougherty, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, specializes in dryer exhaust issues while educating customers about dryer fire prevention and dryer care. He explains that a full load of wet clothes contains about a half a gallon of water. Lint is created from clothing as water is removed during the drying process. Over time moist lint begins to line the inside of the dryer duct accumulating until air flow becomes restricted. Anytime during this process a fire can break out as lint is highly flammable and with restricted air flow more heat builds. Dryer vent cleaning is the best way to eliminate the problem and restore airflow.
The Wizard (http://massapequa.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) addresses a number of problems when he inspects, cleans, repairs or installs new dryer vent systems. He will perform a test to analyze airflow speed before and after service to show the customer the difference. Proper dryer vent installation and good dryer maintenance is critical to dryer performance and safety.
A dryer vent system that is not properly moving the moist heated air to the outside could be releasing the air to the inside. Excess humidity in the laundry area is a sign of poor ventilation. Besides the fire danger this venting of humid heated air into the house can provide the perfect environment for mold and bacteria to grow. Anyone with allergies knows this can be a miserable situation in the home.
