Dryer taking longer to dry your clothes,, ??

Could be the vent is clogged up.. If your home is over 5 yrs old and the dryer vent has not been cleaned the dryer vent is more likely to be clogged that not. 

One way to tell is when drying bulky items like towels you put them in and after the cycle finishes you go to take them out and still a bit damp feeling. So you run the cycle again and this time they are mostly dry but man that takes a while.

Now some dryers have moisture sensors that will keep the dryer running till the clothes get dry. In that case you may notice the dryer just keep running and running for what seems like ever.

You wonder how can it be clogged you clean the lint filter out regularly. Well the lint filter does a good job but it does not get all the lint.. Most of the stuff we see is the finer lint, hair and other stuff.

When the dryer is running it crates moisture which is vented to the outside.. the moist air with lint can start sticking to the vent pipe building up on the inside over time.

One reason for cleaning is to  remove the flammable lint buildup allow the dryer to run more efficiently, but the main reason is for fire safety of the dryer vent system.

So now that you are aware of the need for dryer vent cleaning give us a call to schedule that service today.. 919-772-8110
