Lawdwaz Posted February 27, 2022 Share Posted February 27, 2022 Today I got my wife to agree to give me her blessings in cleaning out some old games, toys and what not from the kids. Granted these items haven't been used in 12+ years (as a guess based on my daughters age). Old musty board games, action figures, etc etc all were bagged up and are already in the dumpster at my work. Four or five large contractor bags plus some misc old household furnishings (not bizzy quality of course) are gone. Seems a bit wasteful trashing things but all were well worn at the very least. We saved a bunch though, some will be donated and others kept for future use. So...........I looked at the dryer and thought "what an awesome job for a cold, windy February day". The vent hasn't seen a lick of maintenance in 9 years so I pulled the dryer out, took the old metal (plastic vent hose is a code violation) flex vent line out and ran to the local hardware store. $12 for a new 8' flex line and a couple feet of duct tape and we're back in business. The metal flex line isn't much of a fire hazard compared to the plastic flex for obvious reasons but fire can still be a issue as lint builds up inside the hose. Dryer fires are a real thing. In my 30 years in the cleaning business we cleaned up after plenty of dryer fires and all were preventable. It's an easy job for anyone here. Don't take it for granted. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
