Dryer Vent Cleaning Fairfax Wizard Addresses Commonly Asked Questions
Dryer vent installation codes have been updated over the years but new homes with new dryer vent systems come with their own set of hazards
When asked if simply cleaning the lint screen after each load is adequate maintenance, the Fairfax Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard explains that only about 60% of lint removed from tumbling laundry is caught in the lint screen. The rest escapes into the dryer vent system and inside the dryer where it accumulates and blocks air flow. Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning is the only way to ensure dryer safety and efficiency.
When asked if the lint would eventually make it out of the home through the dryer vent outdoors, Doug explains that many people believe it will, but this is a myth. The main function of the dryer vent system is to remove heat and moisture from wet laundry. The moisture causes lint to stick to the sides of the dryer duct where it dries to a hard paste and attracts more lint. Eventually, this leads to a fire hazard. Failure to clean dryer vents regularly is the leading cause of dryer fires.
Proper dryer vent installation using the right material is also important for safety and efficiency. People with newer homes and energy efficient appliances believe they have nothing to worry about. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Many newer homes are built with laundry facilities located upstairs near bedrooms, in the center of the home, rather than on the ground floor near an outside wall. This means the dryer vent is longer with bends and turns and areas that are difficult to access. Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.fairfax.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) will perform a complete dryer vent inspection and explain how he can make the system work safer and more efficiently.
Service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard are familiar with a variety of dryer vent configurations and they have special tools for reaching the difficult to access areas. When cleaning dryer vents it is critical that every inch be accessed. Any area that is missed is an area where lint will accumulate and block air flow.
