Clogged tubes can be a result of debris and lint that make their way into the vent. The best method to avoid this is by using a lint filter/ trap. Lint filters are extremely important for catching lint before it makes its way into your tubes. There are many benefits to clean tubes. First and foremost, your risk of fire is significantly reduced. Fires can occur when tubes are blocked and clogged with lint. The next benefit is improved energy efficiency. When tubes are clogged, your dryer cycle need to run much longer to dry the same amount of clothes. This is a waste of resources such as energy, money and time.
Animals such as mice, rats and others can enter your home through the tube. This happens when the grille covering the vent exit is not properly fitted. The grille should be attached firmly. Our technicians are able to inspect this and determine if you need a repair or new grille. Rats/ mice in a dryer tube can cause many issues. This issue should be addressed immediately. Only a certified and professional technician will be able to diagnosis this. This issue can easily go unnoticed. This is why inspections are so crucial for fixing undetected issues.
