A dryer taking too long to dry a load of laundry, rarely indicates aging, wear or the need for dryer repair service
Fairfax, VA – According to the Fairfax Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, slow drying time is rarely an indication of dryer malfunction. The problem is actually caused by a clogged or improperly installed dryer vent system. Dryers are the most expensive appliance to operate and poorly vented clothes dryers use even more energy.
Doug and Janice Bittner, owners of Dryer Vent Wizard in Northern Virginia advises her customers that the lint screen only traps about 60% of the lint produced by drying laundry. The rest is trapped in the dryer vent system where it accumulates and blocks air flow. The most common sign of an air flow blockage is the dryer taking longer to do its job. As the dryer labors harder and runs longer, utility bills are increased. When left unchecked slow drying time will lead to premature appliance breakdown or a dryer fire.
Over 17,000 clothes dryer fires are reported each year, with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause. The fall and winter seasons are a time when the frequency of home fires increases. The Wizard(http://www.NorthernVirginia.DryerVentCleaningNow.com) is working extra hard to promote consumer awareness on the importance of dryer vent cleaning service, especially when slow drying time becomes a problem.
