Warren, MI (PressExposure) December 23, 2009 -- Dryer vent installation is not too complex; however, there are some things one needs to understand about dryer exhaust venting and proper installation to be safe. We hear all kinds of news about dryer fires and the number one cause being failure to clean dryer vents. Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, wants to be sure the public is aware of the importance of a properly installed dryer vent system made of the proper material.
The flexible foil type that looks like something out of a science fiction movie with robots and space beings is no longer your best choice. This type once claimed to contain a fire safely; however, it has been discovered to be unsafe. Mory explained, âThe problem with the flexible foil or corrugated material is that it slows air flow and accumulates more lint. This puts stress on your dryer, causing it to work harder, cost more to operate, and eventually break down or cause a fire.â
Plastic and vinyl ducts are also dangerous. âThey crack and deteriorate, allowing dryer exhaust to leak into your home. They also tend to sag with the weight of lint build-up, blocking air flow and becoming additional fuel for a fire.â Read more about installing dryer vents at http://dryerventinstallationchicago.blogspot.com/
Dryer Vent Wizard only installs dryer vent systems made of rigid metal or aluminum. âParts should be joined with foil tape rather than screws that protrude inside and catch lint,â explained Matias. âDo not use duct tape because it is combustible; use foil tape.â
