Serious hazards lurk in the laundry room as poorly vented dryers lead to excess moisture damage and can cause a fire
Clermont FL – The Clermont Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says there are many benefits to this proper dryer vent maintenance. Why is the dryer vent system so important? 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. A well maintained dryer vent system will efficiently vent the humidity to the outdoors to prevent mold and mildew damage to the home.
Robert Moore, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningorlandofl.com/), 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 shed from clothing as water is removed during the drying process. About half of the lint is caught by the removable screen and the rest becomes trapped inside the dryer and dryer duct. The moist lint begins to line the inside of the duct where it attracts more lint and forms a hard paste that clogs the system. Soon, the flammable lint can catch fire and quickly destroy a home.
The Wizard 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.
A dryer vent system that is not properly moving the moist heated air to the outside could be venting the air to the inside. When the humidity can be felt in the laundry room then the dryer vent has a problem. Besides the fire danger this venting of humid heated air into the house gives rise to a prime place for mold and bacteria to grow. Anyone with allergies knows this can be a miserable situation in the home.
