A homeowner in the Mandarin neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida called A Lint Free Vent 904.537.1483. She was having problems with her dryer:
- Her dryer got hot to the touch on top during a drying cycle.
- It took several cycles to dry a load of laundry.
- It had been 3 or 4 years since she had her dryer vent cleaned.
- She was afraid of a fire caused by her hot dryer.
When we pulled the dryer away from the wall, the dryer vent fell apart! Moisture from the dryer exhaust had collected in the lint clog in the curve of the dryer vent duct. Over the years, this moisture had corroded through the dryer vent duct!
We thoroughly cleaned the dryer vent, all the way to the vent cap, with our rotary brush. (The rotary brush tool is the preferred method for thorough dryer vent cleaning.) We installed a new dryer vent duct, from the dryer to the wall duct connector. Now our client’s dryer is drying laundry as it should, and not getting hot to the touch.
Our client said she was very happy to get her dryer vent repaired and cleaned, and to have her dryer running normally again. She asked us to put her on our A Lint Free Vent calendar for an annual dryer vent cleaning, starting next year.
