Indoor Dryer Vent Concerns
Dryer vents can be a source of many unknown headaches for homeowners. Whether it’s maintenance time or your clothes taking longer to dry, you can expect that a clogged vent might be the cause. The accumulation of lint, debris and other material over time can lead to blockages, which can lead to a variety of problems including: fires, poor air quality, and inefficiency.
