Top Notch Dryer Vent Cleaning Pros in Pacific Beach, CA
More and more people are opting to move to Pacific Beach, CA, thanks to its lovely beaches and its active nightlife. Investing in a home is not easy so it is important to protect it from damage and fire hazards, such as lint. If you are thinking that the lint trap is enough to filter out all that lint, you’re wrong. It accumulates in the dryer vent, too, and if not removed, could cause house fires.
Why Clean the Dryer Vent?
Lint buildup in the dryer vent could block the airflow and force heat, moisture, and carbon monoxide from leaving the house. This could affect indoor air quality and promote moisture damage like mold and mildew. If clogged, the dryer vent could also cause the machine to work twice as hard to remove moisture from clothes. It prolongs the drying cycle and produces more heat and both of these can cause the dryer to overheat, which could lead to fires.
I’d like to recommend an excellent repair man Dariusz Szymanski, with Dryer Vent Cleaning San Diego.
My dryer was making horrible squeaking noises and not drying clothes well. About a year ago my husband and I cleaned our dryer vent however we did not open and clean the dryer itself. Dariusz opened the dryer and found it completely clogged with link, of of which was singed – a terrible fire hazard. The vent had clogged up again as well. Dariusz cleaned the dryer the vent and replaced damaged parts. He is honest, friendly and his price is extremely fair.
A big 5 star for Dariusz!
Warning Signs of a Clogged Dryer Vent
The presence of lint in the dryer vent is undetected unless you actually take it off and check inside. If you are unsure whether it is already clogged or on the verge of getting clogged, here are tell-tale signs to watch out for:
Clothes take longer to dry. Each drying cycle runs longer than normal.
Clothes feel hot and still a bit moist after each cycle. This is a sign that the machine is unable to expel moisture and heat out of the vent.
The machine overheats or automatically shuts off.
There are signs of mold growth behind the dryer and on the walls in the laundry room. This means the humidity level in the room is high and the machine is not ventilation properly.
Tips for Minimizing Lint Buildup in the Dryer Vent
- Opt for metal ductwork. Those made from plastic or foil are more likely to trap lint in their walls where they get stuck and become an obstruction to the airflow.
- Check the lint trap and make sure that it fits snugly. Any loose side is a ticket for lint to get through instead of getting trapped.
- Check the vent flap or screen outside and make sure that nothing is blocking it.
