More than 17,000 dryer fires are reported each year with a clogged dryer vent being the major cause
Lenexa KS – The local Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is on a mission to help his neighbors take action to prevent dryer related fires. Some insurance providers are requiring a dryer vent inspection before providing coverage. A dryer vent inspection by a qualified technician is the first step to eliminating the danger.
According to Harold Bert, owner of dryer vent Wizard, there are several things to look at when performing a dryer vent inspection. Lint accumulation in the dryer duct restricts airflow and it is highly flammable. A poorly installed dryer vent can also be dangerous.
Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaninglenexa.blogspot.com/) is qualified to replace inferior dryer vent systems in homes and businesses. Many homes still have old style dryer vent hose which contributes to the problem of lint build up. The old plastic and foil accordion style dryer hose is no longer up to code. The ridges inside invariably begin a collection of lint with first use. The lint filter in the dryer catches only half of the actual lint produced and the rest ends up trapped in the dryer vent hose. As the lint builds up a clog eventually occurs.
The Wizard will also inspect the dryer vent cap on the outside which is very important. Not only do clogs occur there from lint but birds and small animals have been known to make nests there. This also restricts the flow of air through the dryer hose leading to increased danger of home fires. A dryer vent service technician will make sure these crucial areas are free of obstruction whether the dryer vent is behind the dryer, through the ceiling or through the floor into the crawl space or basement.
Loose dryer vent hoses allow hot moist air to escape into the home allowing for mold and bacteria to grow which can cause problems both for the health of family and pets. The Wizard will inspect the hose to make sure there are no leaks or blockages. He will replace faulty tubing and ensure the dryer operates safely and efficiently.
The family home can be made significantly safer and healthier by calling Dryer Vent Wizard for an inspection and service. Harold Bert serves residents and business owners in Kansas City West, Shawnee, Olathe and surrounding areas. Visit http://www.lenexaks.dryerventcleaningnow.com/ to learn more.
