Improperly Installed Vents
There are a number of standardized rules and guidelines for dryer vent installation that professionals need to pay attention to. Unfortunately, many of these individuals do not adhere to these rules in a strict manner, so it’s not uncommon to come across improperly installed dryer vents. This is a big deal, because these non-standardized dryer vents are at higher risk of causing fires, mold and mildew, and at a basic level, providing poor functionality. If you have a badly installed dryer vent, we can replace it to make sure that you’re getting the right utility from the installation.
Ask the average person about what a suitable dryer vent material is, and they’ll almost certainly believe that a thin, flexible foil vent is good enough – but that absolutely isn’t the case. All across Maryland – and further afield in the United States – properties are using unsuitable, dangerous materials for dryer vents. Many of these materials are flammable, which is obviously a big no-no for a dryer vent. If you have a vent constructed from these materials, you need to make sure that our dryer vent replacement team is called in as soon as possible.
Interior and Exterior Vents
Some dryer vents are installed in such a way that the humid air is routed into the interior of a property, but this is rarely a good idea. More often than not, vents are installed in this way because it’s awkward to direct the vent to the property’s exterior. Yet, given enough time and thought, there’s usually a solution. Interior vents can cause the spread of mold, so having the vent replaced and directed towards the property’s exterior is essential.
Look for the Signs
It’s always worth remembering that there are a number of signs to look out for that could indicate that you have a problem with your dryer vent – the last thing you want is to wait until there’s a severe issue. Sagging vents, high humidity, slow drying times, and excessive lint buildup can all suggest that there’s an issue with your dryer vent.
