dwgrosso...No, I remove the Tee and use it for other dryers in the facility when I am done cleaning one of the lines. Covering the slot will allow more air flow to push the cup. Leaving the cord in might be a good idea, it might not. I am really scared of fire, and don't want anything in there that might melt or ignite. Not a bad idea though, if you can find something that won't cause that problem, though a fire marshal might disagree.
Thanks, and you're welcome!
Woolfie, that's a great idea, too. Maybe with markings on the cord, too, so if it does become snagged, you would have a general idea where it is in the system.
Thanks, vivienevolves. That's one of the reasons I love this site. You can learn so much from others! A plumbing (or electrical cable) snake is a great idea too, as long as you are careful and don't punch a hole in the pipe.
Great info! Thanks!
A fabulpus idea! Thanks for sharing!
Yep. I have heard that, too. But since I have "inherited" the buildings I work in, I have to do what I can do. parisusa, this is great advice! Dryer vents are NOT something to be ignored. And with this type of device, it only takes a few minutes. Once never knows when one might be saving a life with something so mundane. In my opinion, ALL lives matter.
