Failing to clean is the number one factor that contributes to fires in residential buildings. During drying, lint and moisture become bi-products of the process and are pulled by a fan motor. This lint build-up and clogging can lead to an array of problems and ultimately a fire.
Regular inspections and maintenance of your dryer and exhaust are recommended by all manufacturers. Give the Professionals at The Dryer Vent Dude a call today and let us monitor all your dryer and vent needs.

The washing machine, one of your home's most used appliances, requires washing machine hose maintenance or inspection. A hot water supply hose, a cold water supply hose, and a single discharge hose are typically used by washers. Hose connections are made at the back of the machine, where they are frequently hidden and disregarded. This is accurate up until the point where there is a leak or a rupture, leaving you standing in a pool of water and unsure of how it got there. The team at The Dryer Vent Dude, Inc. can assist you in avoiding these discomforts by performing an inspection to ensure that all of your hoses are functioning properly and there are no long-term problems. A homeowner should visually inspect all three of their washing machine hoses at least once a year. A small leak or drip could go unnoticed, but a ruptured hose would be impossible to ignore due to the amount of water that would be dripping through your home. Even a tiny leak can eventually cause damage to the flooring and baseboard. Even worse, the damp surroundings created by the leak will foster the development of mold and mildew spores. Choosing when to replace your washing machine's supply and discharge hoses can be difficult. To be safe, you should replace your hoses as soon as possible if they are older than five years. Overheating and excessive use of safety features can cause your dryer to have potentially expensive problems. A dryer whose drying time is doubled will use up half its lifespan and require costly repairs. If you need commercial repairs, just give The Dryer Vent Dude a call today!
Electrical hazards can be extremely dangerous, and a lot of the time we aren't even aware of how close we are to one! Electrical tape should not be used to cover small nicks and abrasions on a flexible cord when performing repairs at home. Local Lincoln, Nebraska regulations state that cord nicks and abrasions that do not completely penetrate the outer jacket do not pose a serious safety risk, necessitating repair or replacement. However, you might need to have it repaired or replaced by a professional if the outer jacket is penetrated, the conductors or the insulation inside are damaged, or both. A thorough visual examination of the cord may be impeded by the application of electrical tape. Guidelines also state that it is not acceptable to cut off a damaged portion of a flexible cord and attach a plug to the end. This would be regarded as a risk and temporary wiring. The Dryer Vent Dude, Inc will inspect your electrical equipment to ensure that it is listed and installed in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications. It is important to handle portable equipment carefully to prevent damage. The tool cannot be carried by means of flexible cords on the equipment. Flexible cords must not be hung in a way that endangers the insulation or outer jacket. Time, money, and energy are wasted by a dirty vent. Considering that it will run the dryer longer than necessary. A visual examination is part of a dryer vent cleaning to make sure it is clearly in good condition. Contact our team right away if you need a commercial assessment or repairs.
