Boynton Beach, Florida (PressExposure) February 08, 2011 -- The Palm Beach Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard recommends professional dryer vent cleaning service. Horatio Chiorean, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, finds a problem with 90 percent of clothes dryers that he inspects. There are several common errors that homeowners make when installing their own dryer vent system. There are hard-to-reach areas that require the special dryer vent cleaning tools carried by the Wizard.
In a recent interview, Horatio explained, "About 80% of all homes have clothes dryers; this means that there are about 82 million potential fire hazards out there if the dryer vents are not properly maintained. A dryer fire occurs when lint accumulates in the dryer vent system, blocking air flow and causing the dryer to over heat."
Horatio explained that a clothes dryer requires proper air flow to work efficiently. "The harder your dryer has to work to perform its job, the more you will spend on energy bills. A poorly maintained dryer vent system will make your dryer cost an additional $18 to $24 per month to operate," said Horatio.
Though Horatio recommends professional dryer vent cleaning and inspections at least once a year, he realizes that there are a lot of homeowners who insist on doing it themselves. This is the reason he mentioned a special dryer vent cleaning brush available for homeowners to purchase.
He also shared some additional practical uses for this long handled, flexible tool. "The dryer vent cleaning brush is handy for cleaning the coils behind the refrigerator, which is another great energy saving tip. One of my recent customers used hers to retrieve lost items from underneath appliances and to clean under and behind heavy furniture like desks and bookcases."
Even though the Wizard recommends professional dryer vent cleaning service, he would rather provide practical advice for do-it-yourselfers than read about them being victims of a dryer fire later. "Some dryer vent systems are longer than others, with bends and turns that homeowners cannot get to," said Chiroean. "We have the special tools for these difficult to reach areas."
Horatio is happy to provide tips for his customers to maintain their own dryer vent system; but he does encourage residents to have an inspection every year or two to be safe. "Safety codes change over the years and we keep up with the latest technology in dryer exhaust issues to ensure clothes dryers operate safely and efficiently," said Chiroean.
