Dryer Vent Inspection by the Plymouth Wizard Helps Area Residents Eliminate Dryer Fire Hazard
Each year an estimated 17,000 preventable home fires occur due to failure to maintain dryer vents
Plymouth MI – Service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard urge homeowners to schedule a dryer vent inspection and service to be sure their dryer is operating safely and efficiently. Owner, Larry Butterfield is dedicated to helping families in his neighborhood eliminate dryer fire hazards.
Some insurance providers are now requiring an inspection of the dryer vent system before they will provide coverage. A simple phone call to a qualified dryer exhaust technician will eliminate the danger of dryer vent fire in the home as well as provide many other benefits to the home owner. Dryer Vent Wizard will perform a thorough dryer vent inspection including an airflow analysis to ensure safe and efficient dryer function.
The Wizard explains several factors that contribute to the danger. Restricted air flow through the dryer duct leads to an eventual buildup of lint which is highly flammable. When air flow is blocked heat builds up to a dangerous level and lint ignites. Regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and service is the best way to eliminate the danger.
Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com) comes well 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 duct material does meet current safety standards. The ridges inside invariably begin a collection of lint with first use. The lint filter in the dryer catches just over half of the actual lint produced and the rest is trapped inside the dryer and in the dryer vent hose. Professional dryer vent installation by the Wizard eliminates these problems and ensures dryer safety and efficiency.
The Wizard will also inspect the dryer vent cap on the outside which is very important. Not only will lint accumulate there but birds and small animals have been known to build a nest and set up housekeeping in the warm, inviting area. This also restricts the flow of air through the dryer hose leading to increased danger of home fires. Dryer Vent Cleaning by the Wizard is the best solution.
A dryer vent inspection by the Wizard will reveal all the issues that can hinder air flow and reduce dryer efficiency. 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 check fittings to make sure none have come loose over years of use.
The family home can be made significantly safer and healthier by calling Dryer Vent Wizard for an inspection and service.
