Shawnee Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Helps Area Residents Prevent Dryer Fires

There are over 17,000 dryer fires reported each year with most of them caused by failure to clean dryer vents













Shawnee KS – The Shawnee Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is on a mission to educate consumers in his neighborhood to prevent dryer related fires. Many home insurers are now making dryer vent inspections mandatory before they will provide coverage. An inspection by a qualified dryer exhaust technician will eliminate the danger and provide many other benefits to the home owner.

What causes the danger? According to Harold Bert, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, there are many factors that contribute. Restricted air flow through the dryer vent caused by lint accumulation is highly flammable. With reduced air flow heat builds up to a dangerous level and ignition occurs. Regularly scheduled inspections of the dryer vent system are the only safe way to eliminate the danger.

Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK62ZdzmB3g) 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.
