Dryer Vent Cleaning and Repair by the Herndon Wizard Helps with Indoor Air Quality
A clogged dryer vent is a little known source of mold, mildew and allergens in the home which can be a health threat to residents
Doug Bittner owns Dryer Vent Wizard, specializing in dryer vent cleaning and new dryer vent installation. He enjoys establishing long-term relationships with his customers as he offers valuable information about proper dryer maintenance. His main focus is helping prevent dryer fires, however, he also adds energy savings and indoor air quality to the conversation.
Over time, vibration can cause sections of the dryer vent hose to work loose and lead to problems, especially for allergy sufferers. Heat and humidity generated by the dryer escapes into the house rather than out through the vent hose creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria to affect indoor air quality.
In addition to poor indoor air quality, residents should be aware that restricted air flow caused by faulty venting and lint accumulation increases the potential of a dryer fire. The Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningherndonva.blogspot.com/) addresses these problems for customers who have old, outdated dryer vent systems. The dryer vent service technician will perform a complete inspection and airflow analysis, and install a new dryer vent in accordance with current building and safety standards.
Some dryers are vented through the ceiling and here again is potential danger for the allergy sufferer. Water can enter the vent and into the lint clog. This will breed mold and bacteria that will also back up into the home with decreased air flow through the dryer vent hose. The importance of regular dryer vent cleaning is vital to indoor air quality.
Some older homes have dryers that vent through the floor into the crawlspace creating a situation that needs to be addressed immediately by a dryer vent service specialist. Hot, moist air and lint vented into the crawl space or basement is a virtual breeding ground for allergens inside the living space. Dryer Vent Wizard can address and fix these problems. All clothes dryers should be vented outdoors, not into the craw space or attic.
