Go "Green" With Your Clothes Dryer!
Posted By MyGuy
While trying to keep up with mounds of laundry, do you find that when they
are ready to remove the load of clothes from the dryer, they aren't
dry yet? So you restart the drying cycle, using more gas or electricity
and putting your dryer another cycle closer to the landfill. Not a good
step in their sustainability goal.
Your dryer didn't use to perform this way, and now you wonder why the
clothes no longer dry in one cycle.
In all likelihood, these dryers are suffocating in lint that is so clogged
in their filter and vent that they just can't expel the dampness from
the laundry to the outside. A thorough dryer vent cleaning can save both
the dryer and the environment.
Another problem is that many homeowners, by starting their dryer, then
heading to the market, soccer game, bank, cleaners or bed are putting
their home and family at risk. While people are away or sleeping, accumulated
lint in dryers and dryer vents catches fire, and according to the U.S.
Fire Administration, causes 15,000 fires, 15 deaths and 400 injuries a year.
Failure to clean the lint from the dryer vent is the leading factor in
clothes dryer fires. Clogged or incorrectly installed vents, plus plastic,
foil and other inefficient venting to the outside are other major causes
of dryer vent fires.
For peace of mind, have your dryer vent inspected, thoroughly cleaned and
repaired if necessary, and train the family to clean the lint filter after
every load. Always be sure someone is home when the dryer is running.
