Ruckersville Wizard Suggests Safe Dryer Vent Installation Tips to DIY Homeowners
Most dryer fires are a result of poor dryer maintenance; however, poorly installed dryer vents or those constructed of inferior material can also be hazardous
The Ruckersville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard only uses high quality materials to ensure safe dryer vent installation. Dryer vent systems installed by the Wizard are in compliance with recommendations and requirements set forth by one or more of the following authorities: IRC (International Residential Code), Underwriters Laboratories, Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Fire Protection Association and/or dryer manufacturers.
Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningruckersvilleva.blogspot.com/) installs rigid metal vents for maximum safety and efficiency. Metal vents have a smooth interior finish to allow lint to easily pass through so it less likely to accumulate. Metal dryer ducts are also less likely to allow a dryer fire to spread. If a spark from the dryer should come in contact with lint it will likely burn itself out before spreading.
Semi-rigid metal is acceptable for transition ducts but is only intended for connecting the dryer vent system to the dryer and should not be used for the entire dryer duct run.
Professional dryer vent installation is advised to ensure maximum air flow and safety. Parts should be connected using metal foil tape, not screws, duct tape or other types of fasteners. Screws protrude to the inside and catch lint allowing it to accumulate. Foil tape can withstand greater temperature variations and seal connections properly.
Dryer vents that exceed 25 feet may need a booster fan to help the dryer run safely and efficiently. The Wizard can install a booster fan to promote proper airflow.
The Wizard can install a no pest vent cap with a low profile hood and pest proof door to help keep bugs out. The hood has a low airflow resistance to allow adequate venting while keeping pests from entering the home through the dryer vent outdoors.
Dryer Vent Wizard provides commercial and residential dryer vent cleaning, dryer vent repair and new dryer vent installation. Service by the Wizard ensures the dryer operates as safely and efficiently as possible. Customers include homeowners, apartment and condominium managers, and businesses that use clothes dryers like pet groomers, hair salons, assisted living facilities and more.
