Dryer Vents

Clothes taking longer to dry?

Do you know where your dryer vent exits?

When was the last time your dryer was inspected and cleaned?

You probably have heard it a million times: the build up of lint in a dryer vent can cause a fire. So you religiously clean out the lint screen after each load of laundry and think that you’re averting the risk.

 1500 dryer fires per year in the USA!dryerfire

Problem is  lint screens are only catching roughly 25% of the lint. The remaining 75% goes into the dryer vent and sticks to the walls. And that’s all part of what makes dryer vent fires the NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF HOME FIRES!

 When was the last time you inspected your dryer vent? Do you have a fire proof connector from the dryer to the wall?

You’ll want to watch this!

Size Matters! The shorter the better.
The more bends and the longer your dryer vent the more often you need to have your system cleaned.

METAL DRYER DUCTS are the best! 

Flexible dryer ducts made of foil or plastic can sag and let lint build up at low points. Ridges can also trap lint. So metal ducts, either flexible or solid, are much safer because they don’t sag, so lint is less likely to build up. Plus, if a fire does start, a metal duct has a greater chance of containing it.Metal does not burn as easily as the exible plastic.

                                                DryerFlex is our connector of choice!
