These photos show repairs made to a dryer exhaust system by the customer’s maintenance team. They had the best intentions. Wood to cover up a hole in the duct work of a commercial gas dryer? And duct tape (which is made of cloth) to seal a hole that will only dry out and also become a fire hazard.
The repairs with a steel plate where the wood was and high temperature UL-181 listed aluminum tape in place of the duct tape. Leave it to the professionals and do it right the first time! Our recommendation was to replace the entire system with new duct work. Call T&D Duct Cleaning at (410) 795-6200!
