Hello my name is Jeremy Leake and I???m with Dryer Vents Plus. Dryer Vents Plus is a dryer vent cleaning and repair company. Were in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and we’ve been operating for the past 6 years and we service south Louisiana.
Today I???d like to talk to you a little bit about your dryer efficiency. A few tips that you can use to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your dryer and things that you can pay attention to. Very simple first you want to look at the dryer lint screen. If the lint screen does it’s job it catches about 75-80% of the lint but the rest goes on through the dryer and clogs up the vent.
If you ever notice that you have a dryer vents screen that’s collecting on only half the screen or if it’s collecting on both sides or you notice that it???s not collecting any lint at all that is a problem. That’s a sign that your dryer vent is clogged up and you have an air flow issue. If the air is not flowing through properly lint won’t collect properly and that’s a sign that you need to look for to have the vent cleaned out.
Another thing you can look for is the heat of the dryer. If the heat of the dryer is warm that’s what you want to look for but if it’s hot to the touch then you don’t want to keep you hand on it it’s too hot then that’s a sign that you have an extremely clogged up dryer vent and you have an issue that needs to take care of.
Another thing is if your clothes are taking too long, especially jeans and towels, to dry then you want to give us a call to come out and clean out the dryer vent. Another simple thing a lot of people overlook is the space between the wall and the dryer if you keep about 4 or 5 inches between the wall and the dryer that will alleviate the problem that you could have with the dryer vent hose behind the dryer. You want to leave enough space so that there’s not getting crushed back there and the air duct has enough space there to blow through.
Those are a few simple things you can look at while you???re doing your laundry. If you have any of these issues you can always reach us. Again this is Jeremy from Dryer Vents Plus. Our phone number is 225-612-7752.
