El Dorado Hills Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Explains a Hazard Lurking in Many Homes

Over 17,000 preventable home fires occur each year due to improperly installed or poorly maintained dryer vent systems


El Dorado Hills – The El Dorado Hills Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is on a mission to educate consumers and eliminate dryer fire hazards in the neighborhood. Home insurers are also taking action by making mandatory inspection of the dryer vent system before they will provide coverage. Contacting the Wizard for an inspection will eliminate a fire hazard, improve dryer performance and provide many other benefits to the home owner.

What causes the danger? According to Gina Fazil, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, there are many factors that contribute. Restricted air flow through the dryer vent hose leads to an eventual buildup of lint which is highly flammable. With restricted air flow through the dryer vent hose heat builds up to a dangerous level and ignition occurs. Regularly scheduled inspections of the dryer vent system are the only safe way to eliminate the danger.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard comes well-qualified to replace inferior dryer vent systems in homes and businesses. Many homes still have old style plastic, vinyl or flexible foil dryer vent hose which contributes to the problem of lint build up. The ridges inside invariably begin a collection of lint with the first use. The lint filter in the dryer catches only a small percent of the actual lint produced and much ends up trapped in the dryer vent hose. As the lint builds up a clog eventually occurs.

The Wizard (http://dryerventsgoinggreen.com/) will also inspect the dryer vent cap on the outside which is very important. Not only do clogs occur there from lint but birds and small animals have been known to make nests there. This also restricts the flow of air through the dryer hose leading to increased danger of home fires. A dryer vent service technician will make sure these crucial areas are free of obstruction whether the dryer vent is behind the dryer, through the ceiling or through the floor into the crawl space or basement.

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. She 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.
