The most overlooked aspect of your dryer is the dryer vent exhaust system. Out of sight, out of mind! The dryer vent exhaust system begins with the transition hose that runs from your dryer to the wall. The system then continues through the walls or attic where it makes its final exit to the exterior of the building. Every system should have an outside hood to keep animals out and be equipped with a functioning back draft damper.

You may need Blue Team Home Services of San Marcos to replace your transition hose.
Your transition hose connects your dryer to the wall. If your dryer has a transition hose made out of plastic or foil you could be at risk of a dryer fire. Plastic and foil transition hoses are not up to code and should be replaced as soon a possible. They kink easily and they are a fire hazard like the one you see in the picture to the left. We only install Dryer Flex the safest and highest quality transition hoses available.
You may need Blue Team Home Services of San Marcos to repair or install a dryer vent duct.
Your dryer vent duct starts at the wall behind your dryer and runs through the walls or attic where it makes its final exit to the exterior of the building. It is not uncommon for this duct work to separate or break. When this happens every time your dryer is used moist humid air escapes into your walls and attic space. In a full load of wet laundry there is about half gallon of water. Overtime this water can lead to mold and mildew growth in your walls and attic. Another common problem is the use of slinky or flexible type duct that runs through the walls and attic. This is made out of plastic or foil and is a serious fire hazard.It should be replaced as soon as possible. All duct work should be made out of aluminum.Call or Txt Blue Team Home Service of San Marcos today at 858-566-3082 or book online at blueteamcarpet.com
