Chicago, IL (PressExposure) September 09, 2009 -- Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, a dryer vent cleaning and dryer exhaust specialist serving the Chicago area was recently applauded for saving a customer from experiencing a dryer fire. During a recent interview, Mory said, âThere was a misunderstanding; the customer expected me later in the week. When I showed up, she was doing laundry and the room was very hot and humid. I insisted on stopping the dryer to inspect and provide services immediately. What I found was a serious fire hazard.â
As Mory pulled the dryer away from the wall he noticed the vinyl hose leading to the vent outdoors was cracked, sagging and full of dryer lint. âThe excess material was bunched up and crushed behind the dryer as the owner pushed it against the wall. This blocks the air flow which is one of the most important things a dryer needs in order to work,â said Matias.
Mory replaced the dryer vent system with semi-rigid metal as he explained what he was doing and why it was necessary. The customer was pleased with his service and relieved as she realized that he probably saved her home from a dryer fire. âIâm going to add dryer vent cleaning to my regular appliance maintenance schedule and insist that Mory personally perform the service,â said the happy customer.
According to Dryer Vent Wizard, proper installation, meeting city, state and manufacturer codes is important for preventing dryer vent problems that can increase drying time and cause a fire. Plastic or foil, accordion type ducting material should be replaced with rigid or corrugated semi-rigid metal duct, as specified by most manufacturers, to provide maximum airflow.
