Spring cleaning is a great way to ring in the warm weather in Calgary, Alberta - but don’t forget your dryer vents! An unobstructed dryer vent is crucial for preventing fire and carbon monoxide hazards. Furthermore, dryer vents often need special attention in the spring, as birds and other critters are just starting to build their nests.
What to Look For
Obviously, any nests or critters in your vent are an immediate cause for concern. However, this is also a good time to inspect the vent to see if everything else is in order. Watch out for cages or screens that prevent pests from entering. These also allow lint to build up, which simply causes another problem. We can install the correct screen to keep critters out without obstructing the vent.
Lastly, make note of any duct tape, PVC piping, plastic materials, or vinyl/foil materials. These are all hazardous venting materials, and should be replaced with something safer.
Of course, nothing beats a professional inspection. Our Calgary, Alberta dryer vent experts are standing by to perform a thorough inspection, cleaning, and repair of your dryer ventilation system.
