Extend Dryer Life

Why Fire Safety Risks Matter

A clogged dryer vent can cause a host of problems that may be difficult to diagnose without a professional inspection. When airflow is stopped or restricted in the dryer vent, the dryer is forced to work harder to expel the moisture and heat, which may result in poor performance or automatic shutoff.

Think You Need a New Dryer? Think Again!

When a dryer starts performing poorly, taking longer to dry clothing, or overheating, people often believe it is a mechanical issue and start shopping for an entirely new dryer. At Dryer Vent Wizard, we’ve seen the baby go out with the bathwater in this way many times. In reality, the source of the problems may not be a malfunctioning appliance at all, but rather an accumulation of lint or other debris in the dryer vent line.

Professional inspection and dryer vent cleaning can bring your dryer back to life, often restoring the dryer function to its original capability. In order to keep your dryer operating a peak efficiency, manufacturers recommend that dryer vent lines are professionally cleaned once per year.

Maintenance for Vent Fire Prevention:

A dryer related fire occurs every 37 minutes, on average, making proper vent maintenance essential. Dryer vent fire prevention includes inspecting and removing any debris, clogs, or other blockages that will create fire safety risks.

    Dryer Delinting

    Your lint trap and dryer vent are not the only places collecting lint.  Dryer delinting is the process of opening the dryer and cleaning out lint that has escaped the lint trap but not made it into the dryer vent hose. To fully protect yourself and prevent dryer fires, have your dryer delinted.

    Lint Screen and Trap Cleaning

    The dryer's lint trap ensures excess lint is captured and doesn’t create a fire risk. But cleaning the trap every time you run the dryer isn’t all you can do to help prevent dryer vent fires. We recommend having it professionally cleaned to ensure it works as it should.
