Give your clothes dryer the proper diagnosis

It's safe to say that few people actually look forward to doing laundry, and when you have a poorly functioning washer and dryer, the process is only made all the more painful. This is especially true if you live in a space where you have to share your laundry machines with others and are forced to pay for every load you wash. Sending your clothes through a dryer twice is a waste of quarters that you could be saving for your next load - not only that, but running your dryer more times than you need to is sure to start taking a toll on your electric bill.

You have a few options that you can look into to address this issue. If your dryer isn't heating up as much as it should be to actually remove the moisture from your clothes, don't jump to the conclusion that you need to replace it. Many homeowners will make the mistake of buying new appliances, spending hundreds of dollars picking out a top-of-the-line model, only to find that it too isn't adequately drying your clothes.

To avoid wasting large sums of money on a new dryer, have an experienced DC electrical service come evaluate the electrical connection to the machine. With over 100 years of experience providing contracting services to Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia, John C. Flood has solved its fair share of electrical problems since being founded.

If you share your dryer with other people in your apartment complex, encourage your landlord to contact us today so that you and your neighbors will no longer be wasting quarters - not to mention time - just trying to get your clean clothes dry.
