In every home, there are relatively small things that can have a pretty significant impact on the overall longevity of the house. As just one example, consider the potential problems that can arise from the improper installation of the common exhaust vent on a clothes dryer.
This everyday appliance can expel somewhere around a gallon of water from its’ vent with every single load. If the vent is pointing indoors instead of outdoors, that water may be getting trapped inside your home, causing potentially serious moisture issues. Also, the duct of a dryer’s exhaust must be as straight as possible. The main reason for this is that sharp curves in the ductwork can lead to a build-up of lint and other materials. This can become a serious fire hazard, and should be avoided at all costs. For these simple reasons, why not take a quick look at your dryer and make sure that it’s installed properly?
