In today’s unstable economy people are doing all they can to save money, including home repairs and maintenance tasks that they used to hire a professional to handle. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, the number of dryer related fires has increased to over 17,000 per year.
Dryer fires can ignite in a number of ways; however, lint is usually the kindling and improperly installed dryer vent systems are the reason for excessive lint build up. Vinyl or plastic dryer vent tubes can also provide fuel for a rapidly spreading fire. Professional dryer vent installation by the Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningnorthbay.blogspot.com/) eliminates the hazard and improves dryer performance.
Improper dryer vent installation or use of inferior material can cause the most devastating damage. The corrugated vinyl can sag and cause excessive lint to build-up, restrict air flow and cause the dryer to over heat. As the dryer labors to do its job, and restricted air flow prevents heat and moisture from escaping, drying time increases, energy usage increases, and the end result is a dryer fire.
In addition to fire safety and energy efficiency, proper dryer vent installation increases the life of the clothes dryer. Poorly installed dryer vent systems can result in stress and damage to the dryer. Clothing can also be damaged when exposed to excessive heat and over-drying.
Another good reason to have professional dryer vent installation performed is most appliance warranties will not cover damage caused by faulty dryer vent systems. Appliances are a large investment, so they should be professionally installed to ensure safety and performance.
Dryer Vent Wizard provides professional dryer vent installation according to current safety standards. Even the very best, state-of-the-art dryer vent system requires periodic maintenance to remove lint build-up.
