Dryer vent cleaning should be added to everyone’s seasonal home maintenance routine
Wethersfield, CT – The Wethersfield Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard reminds residents to check their dryer vent, on the outside of their home, to be sure it is not frozen shut or blocked by drifting snow. Clogged dryer vents are a leading cause of dryer fires and dryer performance problems.
According to John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (www.dryerventcleaningwethersfieldct.blogspot.com/) dryer vents can get damaged and lead to other problems in the home. During the winter months, small animals will find the warm space inviting as they happily move in and set up housekeeping. The Wizard as also removed birds and bees nests from damaged dryer vents. Dryer vent cleaning service will remove this problem and eliminate one opening where pests can enter the home.”
The dryer vent cover should be replaced if the hood is cracked, surrounded by mold and moss or the caulk around it is deteriorating. This allows outdoor air into the home, causing the heat and ac unit to operate inefficiently. Repairing or replacing the dryer vent and properly sealing the opening will save money on utility bills and keep pests out.
