Kansas City Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Addresses Issues Indicating Potential Fire Hazard

Increased drying time is a warning of restricted airflow which will lead to higher energy bills, dryer malfunction or a devastating dryer fire

Kansas City KS – According to the Kansas City Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, failure to clean dryer vents is the leading cause of dryer related fires. An estimated 15,000 to 20,000 fires per year are attributed to poorly vented clothes dryers. The Wizard urges home owners to schedule regular dryer vent cleaning service to eliminate the danger.

Harold Bert owns Dryer Vent Wizard in Kansas City, specializing in dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation while educating residents about the warning signs indicating danger. He explains to all his customers that when clothes take more than one cycle to dry then the dryer duct is probably clogged with lint. Other important signs include: clothes coming from the dryer feeling hotter than usual, the outside of the dryer is hot to touch, the laundry room is hot and humid and a burnt smell can be detected near the dryer.

Residents who have service performed by Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ii23nGP5nw) enjoy peace of mind knowing their dryer operates safely and efficiently. Harold does a complete inspection and he checks for loose fittings which allow air and humidity to escape into the living space. He will do a complete cleaning to ensure maximum airflow for improved dryer performance, fire prevention and energy savings.

The flexible dryer hose of times past are a major source of problems. Not only do they crush easily causing breaks, but their accordion design allows for many places that lint will build up causing a potential fire in the home. The Wizard comes prepared to replace these inferior dryer vent systems with solid metal material that meets current safety standards.

In these economic tough times it only makes good money sense to properly maintain the dryer vent system. An improperly functioning dryer vent can cost home owners as much as $18 to $24 per month. When air flow is restricted by a clogged dryer vent the dryer is unable to operate at peak efficiency.

Service by the Wizard will eliminate the danger and make the home more energy efficient. In addition proper care helps protect expensive clothing that can easily be damaged by exposure to excessive heat.

Don’t wait and assume everything is alright and that a devastating dryer fire cannot happen. The lack of common warning signs does not mean all is fine. Be safe and have the Wizard perform a dryer vent inspection to be sure all is safe.
