“Kevin arrived slightly ahead of time (much appreciated) and got directly to work inspecting the job. He told me what needed to be done and proceeded to do it. He worked quickly and efficiently cleaning and repairing the duct.
He cleaned up after himself and did a completely thorough job. The charge was very reasonable for the complicated job and the amount of duct repair needed.”
Clothes dryers are one of the most often used appliances in the home. Unfortunately, when it comes to maintenance they are commonly the most neglected.
The clothes dryer is an indispensable convenience and necessity. However, unnecessary appliance wear or even damaging fires can occur if not properly installed or maintained.
Adequate airflow from the dryer to the exterior of the home is essential during operation. Restricted airflow can cause the appliance to eventually overheat and cause a fire. While several conditions can restrict this air movement, excessive lint accumulation is usually the culprit of most dryer performance issues. According to the U. S. Fire Administration, this highly flammable lint should be removed from the dryer exhaust system on a regular basis.
A clean exhaust duct prevents heat, moisture, and in the case of gas clothes dryers, carbon monoxide from being trapped in your home. When a dryer runs at higher than designed temperatures, drying efficiency is lowered, the life of the clothes dryer components decreases and cost of operation increases.
