Dryer Vent Repair Prevents Fire in Richmond, VA

Richmond, VA (PressExposure) December 23, 2009 -- The old, vinyl dryer vent system was cracked and deteriorated; most dryer exhaust was leaking into the customer’s home

Dryer vent repair is almost as important as dryer vent cleaning to reduce fire hazard and ensure the dryer is operating safely and efficiently. George Hostetler, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard of Central Virginia works hard to promote public awareness of the importance of dryer vent maintenance to prevent fires and conserve energy. Proper installation is also very important.

George said, “The old vinyl or flexible foil dryer ducts are no longer acceptable for use in a dryer vent system. Even if they are properly cleaned and maintained, they still do not meet current safety codes. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs dryer vent systems of rigid metal.”

George recently visited a home in Petersburg when a customer complained about excessive heat and humidity in the laundry room when the dryer was running. “The first thing I noticed was the old vinyl dryer duct, sagging from the weight of trapped lint. The tubing was also cracked, allowing the dryer exhaust to leak into the home instead of going out through the vent outside.”

George replaced the inferior dryer vent system as he explained why the older one was not working properly. The customer was relieved that dryer vent repair was all that was necessary; she was concerned that she would need to repair or replace her clothes dryer. “Dryer vent repair cures most dryer ailments,” George explained. “Proper venting and air-flow are the most important elements in the function of a clothes dryer.”

George was inspired to go into the dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation business when one of his neighbors had a dryer fire. George is committed to educating consumers in his community to reduce dryer fire hazards and ensure clothes dryers operate efficiently.
