Westtown Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Urges DIY Homeowners to have Professional Dryer Vent Inspection

The Wizard explains the urgency of proper installation and maintenance of all clothes dryers, gas & electric; commercial and residential

 










Westtown PA – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Westtown Wizard urges DIY homeowners to schedule a dryer vent inspection and maintenance service. Dryer vent installation is a simple concept, but there are some critical mistakes often made by DIY homeowners and handymen. The Wizard finds and corrects problems with 90 percent of dryer vent systems installed by homeowners. Most systems that are over 10 years old or have never been serviced by a qualified dryer exhaust technician do not meet current safety standards.

The most common problem revealed in a dryer vent inspection is the material used for the dryer duct. Plastic, vinyl or flexible foil dryer ducts should be replaced with solid metal dryer venting for safety and efficiency. All dryers should be vented outdoors and the system must be properly installed. Even the very best dryer vent system installed by the Westtown Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard will require maintenance. Here are some signs that dryer vent cleaning or duct repair service is needed:

• Increased drying time
• Clothes are hot after a dryer cycle
• The outside of the dryer is hot while in use
• The laundry room is unusually hot and humid while the dryer is running
• Windows fog up when operating the dryer
• Little or no lint on the dryer filter
• Lint accumulated behind the dryer
• Little or no visible exhaust coming from the vent outside

Dryer vent cleaning is an easy task when the duct is short and straight; however, some are longer, with one more bends. The homeowner will do their best and clean what they can easily reach. Sadly, the most difficult areas to access pose the greatest danger. Lint has no problem getting into the hard to reach places, so cleaning most of the dryer duct is not good enough. Air flow will be obstructed when lint accumulates anywhere in the dryer vent system. The Wizard (http://westtownpa.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) will perform a complete dryer vent inspection including an airflow analysis to be sure the system is working at peak performance.

Gerry Rhen owns Dryer Vent Wizard, serving the Greater Orlando area. He specializes in all dryer vent service, dryer vent inspection, cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation in homes and businesses. He is concerned about the DIY homeowner who is unaware of the changes in dryer vent safety standards.

A clogged dryer duct can cause a number of problems including increased humidity and indoor air contaminants like mold. A leak in the system can cause dryer exhaust to leak into the home. The moist lint trapped in the dryer duct is a perfect breeding ground for mold. A complete dryer vent cleaning by the Wizard is the solution to most dryer performance problems.

Gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat when not properly vented. All dryers produce lint which is flammable and failure to remove lint build up will eventually lead to a dryer fire.

There are many benefits to having regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and service including energy savings and dryer fire prevention. The fee for dryer vent cleaning quickly pays for itself in reduced energy bills, better dryer performance and longer dryer life.

Gerry Rhen was inspired to go into the dryer vent cleaning and installation business when he realized how many people are still using the plastic, vinyl and flexible-foil dryer vent systems that are no longer in compliance with dryer vent safety standards. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs solid metal dryer ducts, vented to the outdoors, and completely up to code. Visit http://www.getthelintout.org/ to learn more.

Service by the Westtown Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Promotes Healthier Home Environment

The Wizard has discovered that people often overlook the dryer vent system, a main source of indoor air contaminants lurking in the home

 











Westtown PA – The Westtown Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard addresses a common problem in many homes. With a growing trend of healthier living habits people often overlook a main source of indoor air contaminants lurking behind the dryer or above the ceiling which is where most home dryers vent. Indoor air quality can be improved by having a dryer vent service professional perform an inspection and maintenance service.

Over time, fittings which securely hold the dryer vent hose in place work loose. When that happens trouble often follows, especially for allergy sufferers. Heated, moist air escapes into the house rather than out through the dryer vent making a breeding ground for all sorts of mold and bacteria.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard explains how decreased air flow through the dryer vent system leads to another problem. Restricted airflow caused by a buildup of lint causes the dryer to labor harder and run hotter which increases the potential of a dryer fire. Regular scheduled dryer vent maintenance by the Wizard will prevent both of these dangerous conditions.

Gerry Rhen, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://westtownpa.dryerventcleaningnow.com/), educates consumers while providing an important home service. He explains how dryer vent hoses vented through the ceiling can be a potential threat 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.

Some older homes vent through the floor into the crawlspace creating a hazardous condition. Hot, moist air and lint vented into the crawl space or basement is a virtual breeding ground for allergens inside the living space. A dryer vent service technician can address and fix these problems as well as the potential for a fire in the crawl space or basement of the home.

With increased humidity and mold also come foul odors. These can reach intolerable levels especially during the closed in days of the fall and winter season. Dryer Vent Wizard will not only help keep the home free of mold and bacteria, but also eliminate danger of fire as well as bad odor.

During National Fire Prevention Month in October, Gerry Rhen, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.getthelintout.org/) donated a portion of proceeds to the American Red Cross to make an extra effort to raise consumer awareness about eliminating fire hazards and developing a fire escape plan.

Do's and Don'ts for your Dryer

  • Clean the lint filter before or after each load. Don't forget to clean the back of the dryer where lint can be trapped.
  • The interior of the dryer and venting system should be cleaned periodically by qualified dryer vent service personnel. If you notice the drying time is longer, have the dryer vent system thoroughly cleaned to ensure proper airflow.
  • Plastic, vinyl and aluminum foil venting shouldn't be used as dryer vent.
  • Do not dry clothing/fabric on which there is anything flammable (alcohol, cooking oils, gasoline, spot removers, dry-cleaning solvents, etc.). Flammable substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.

  • Have dryer vent cleaning service performed regularly
