Dam Ice

We’ve had no shortage of ice and snow this winter, so much so that many of us have seen damage-causing ice dams in our gutters and drains. One other place to look for pesky ice and snow is around your dryer vent. When your dryer releases all that warm air into the great outdoors, it also creates moisture that may re-freeze on and around your vent. If your vent is iced over, the dryer won’t have proper air flow, causing it be be inefficient.

Of course, there are many causes of poor air flow with dryers. Trust me, I’ve seen a lot of ’em – underwear, underwires, pillow stuffing, critters, critter nests…. If that’s the case, it may be a job for a professional.
