Have you ever noticed your laundry taking too long to dry? While most of us automatically assume the dryer itself is to blame when laundry takes more than 1-2 cycles to dry, that’s often not the case. Unless your dryer is antique, it’s more likely there is another issue.
One potential cause is a clogged vent. If the dryer vent is obstructed by debris or lint, the dryer will not work properly. You’ll notice the drum will spin but the heat can’t keep up. A sensor in the dryer will adjust the heat, or turn it off, if it gets too hot due to a clogged vent. Not only does this mean your dryer will be less efficient, it also poses a fire hazard.
Having a clean dryer vent allows your dryer to work more efficiently, which saves time and money in the long run. A clean vent will also give you peace of mind by reducing the risk of a dryer fire. If your dryer is running inefficiently or hasn’t been cleaned recently, contact a dryer vent cleaning expert like All Clean Dryer Vent Cleaning LLC.
