Dryer Vent Inspection
Properly inspecting a dryer vent requires a keen eye. Many factors go into this process, including the material of the dryer vent, the length, the curvature, transition ducts, and more. Materials a professional will always be cautious of include vinyl and plastic. Instead, your dryer exhaust should be made of a specific type of metal. Also, a lengthy and curvy duct leads to many more locations where things can go wrong. The support within the house holding up the dryer vent is also a point of inspection. When the duct sags, this can cause problems. Additionally, it's very important that your connecting ducts are sealed and tight. If not, heat and lint can escape into other areas of your home.
After inspecting a dryer vent, it’s common to come across minor problems. It’s important to know to repair these problems, including holes or sagging. Repairing holes with the wrong material susceptible to heat damage can lead to many issues down the road.
