Cleaning your dryer vents is an essential maintenance measure that all homeowners and business owners should be doing regularly. At Planet Duct we suggest yearly dryer vent cleaning to ensure that your home and business are safe. We have served the Colorado Springs community for many years providing both dryer vent cleaning and air duct cleaning by our NADCA certified air duct cleaning technicians. 

Adapter Installation

Protect your investment and ease the process of cleaning your clothes dryer vent by simply visiting your local hardware store. Pick up a dryer vent adapter which can be used as a great tool to connect to the oval receptacle up behind your dryer.  Once attached, you can take part in the adapter and place your dryer hose in it to ensure that it stays connected. The adapter will screw right on your round dryer hose. Once the adapter has been connected to your wall, you can take the other pieces provided with the adapter and snap the components together. By doing this you will have successfully converted your oval dryer vent opening to a round-shaped one which will match the hose attached to your dryer. This way, you are able to connect your round dryer hose to an oval outlet without destroying your hose or filling your day with frustration.

Dryer Hoes Fitment

It’s important to understand why this is a critical issue. If you were to leave your dryer hose connected or partially connected to an oval vent receptacle the gasses and lint would eventually escape the hose. The objective of a dryer vent is to vent the gases and heat out of your home as well as to provide an escape route for the lint. So in the case that the dryer hose is stretched over the oval receptacle over time with the heating and cooling the hose would eventually rip or slip off. Therefore the dryer gases and lent would no longer be able to escape through the vents. If the hose was only partially connected the gasses would immediately leak into your home, and the lint would eventually spill out on the floor. This can cause a dryer vent fire down the road.

Hello, I’m Brandon with Planet Duct air duct cleaning in Colorado Springs. At Planet Duct, we often run into an issue with homes in Colorado Springs involving round dryer hoses and oval dryer ducts. Once we complete a comprehensive dryer vent cleaning each year, we need to attach the dryer hose back to the dryer duct. Instead of causing frustration and potentially damaging your dryer hose, there is an easy fix: an adapter. When we run into a hose that is partially connected or stretched we will recommend an adapter to prevent the above issues from ensuing.
