We found plastic vent going up the wall and across the attic in this Greensboro Townhome in the Maple Ridge community. We eliminated this dangerous situation and installed a hard duct system.
This material is dangerous for dryer venting. It was clogged with lint so we decided replacement was the best option.
No wonder the dryer took hours to complete a cycle!
Proper Dryer Vent
A clean system taped with mastic and secured with metal strapping. Efficient and easy to maintain.
We decided to clean out the customer's dryer (free!) after we found mouse droppings near the exhaust. When we took the back panel off we saw the power connection had melted due to overheating caused by the clogged dryer vent. We were able to replace a couple of parts and put on a new cord for the customer.
