Just moved in to my new condo and bought my first steam dryer only to realize that the condo syndicate prohibits us to use the steam function on our dryers because of a problem in the construction of the vents that would cause water to accumulate too easily.
My question is if this interdiction is founded in actual facts? My intuition tells me that the humidity that comes from completely damp clothes that come straight out of a washer would produce more steam from a normal dry cycle than it would from putting dry clothes in with the steam cycle. I see some steam dryers even have small water containers (instead of a direct hose connection) that some report they don't need to refill for many cycles. This tells me that the steam function probably doesn't generate that much humidity.
Does anyone with experience in the matter have an opinion?
