Hello all, I'm new to this site but not at all new to DIY. I think it's some sort of sickness that runs in my family... I think it's fair to establish credentials; I've been building projects since high school, building cabinets with a friend who had his own business. From there it shifted to working on cars and attending a local auto mechanic vocational school.
What I bring to this site is the construction experience I've gained since then; We rennovated a 1917 farm house for 10 years, replacing walls, floors, the heating, plumbing and electrical systems etc.. Just about everything involved there. A few years ago we moved, then designed and built our own home with me acting as the GC, electrician, lead carpenter, plumbing assistant and gofer. I'm also a certified journeyman electrician and electrical administrator in Washington state. I hope to pass on as much help as possible to save people time and money as well as learn a few things on some less common projects I'll be taking on. May you all have safe projects!
Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
