Eliminate Mold Issues
One of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture during the drying process. A full load of wet clothes placed in a dryer contains about one-half gallons of water. A clean and properly installed dryer vent is critical to ensuring that water is fully expelled outdoors during the dry cycle.
What Causes Mold Issues in Dryer Vents?
Clogs -If your dryer vent is clogged or improperly installed, moisture can condense into pools of water in the dryer vent. It then mixes with excess lint, creating a maché that sticks to the vent walls. This not only clogs the vent further, but also creates perfect conditions for mold and mildew to grow.
Leaks -Lint buildup is also a common cause for dryer vent leaks and mold growth. A dryer vent clogged with lint blocks airflow. Moist air exhausted by the dryer condenses and may result in a water leak. Moisture from the water leak can allow mold growth to occur.
Dangers of Molds
Mold growth in homes can lead to structural damage as well as a variety of health problems. In order to prevent these issues, it is necessary to address leaky vents and areas of moisture build-up immediately.
