Glastonbury, CT (PressExposure) March 13, 2011 -- Over 15,000 dryer fires are reported annually, with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause. Improper dryer vent installation is another major contributor to dryer fires.
John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, specializes in dryer vent services. "I find a problem with 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems that I inspect," said Moffat. "There are at least 10 factors to look at when inspecting a clothes dryer for safety, including the dryer vent system and air-flow speed."
Homeowners often install dryer vent tubes made of vinyl or flexible foil, which do not comply with current safety standards. "These systems can sag and allow lint to accumulate in a low spot and block air flow. They become brittle with age and crack, allowing dryer exhaust to leak into homes. This can be a carbon monoxide hazard with gas dryers."
The reason homeowners choose the vinyl dryer vent tubes is because they are very easy to install. John Moffat's customers appreciate his concern for their safety and the time he spends explaining why they need to replace their dryer vent system.
"We want to thank you for replacing the exhaust hose for our basement dryer. Your customer service and courtesy were outstanding. The work you performed was of a high professional caliber. We will surely recommend your company to our friends and family as they will benefit by doing business with you. Thanks, again." Sincerely, G.L. & M.A., Rocky Hill, CT
Professional service by the Glastonbury Dryer Vent Installation Wizard makes the clothes dryer work safely and efficiently. Regular dryer vent cleaning is necessary to maintain all dryer vent systems. Newer clothes dryers create more lint. Newer, larger homes often have a longer dryer duct which means slower air flow and more lint accumulation. There is no such thing as a maintenance free dryer vent system.
Dryer Vent Wizard professionally inspects and cleans clothing dryers for homeowners and in commercially-owned buildings. Poorly maintained dryer vents cause fire hazards and cost substantially more to operate. Get peace of mind; contact the Wizard for a complete inspection and service today.
