Optimizing Dryer Systems: A Crucial Aspect of Home Inspection Services

A little goes a long way to optimizing dryer systems.

As a trusted home inspection company we are dedicated to ensuring the safety and longevity of your property. We wanted to shed light on a simple yet critical aspect of home inspection services that often goes overlooked: dryer duct maintenance. A thorough home inspection involves not only assessing the structural integrity of a property but also examining potential fire hazards. One often underestimated risk lies within the dryer ducts, making regular maintenance essential for homeowners.

When it comes to dryer duct materials, we caution homeowners against the use of flex ducting. Despite its popularity due to flexibility and ease of installation, flex ducting poses a considerable fire hazard. The accordion-like structure allows lint to accumulate, creating pockets of highly combustible material. Qualified property inspectors advocate for the use of rigid metal ducts during home assessment services, as they significantly reduce the risk of lint build-up and enhance overall safety.
