A dryer machine is designed to push out the hot moist air for clothing to dry but if your dryer vent is clogged the air will stay in your dryer keeping your clothes hot and moist. If your vent is blocked you’ll notice that clothes are not completely dry at the end of a regular cycle.
When you run your dryer do you smell a burning odor? This is a major signal that your vents are clogged. In that case you must discontinue use of your dryer and have it inspected by a professional as soon as possible. Lint is very flammable, it can build up in the exhaust tube and even in the drum casing causing a burning smell.
Dryer ducts should be inspected and cleaned at least once a year to reduce the risk of fires and carbon monoxide poisoning and fire hazards in your home. If you have experienced any of the issues described above please call us at 04 3191 8137 for a complete inspection and professional service.
