Increased drying time is the most common sign of restricted airflow which will eventually lead to a devastating dryer fire
Oceanside NY – According to the Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, failure to maintain dryer ducts is the leading cause of dryer fires. An estimated 15,000 to 20,000 fires per year are blamed on poorly maintained clothes dryers. The Wizard urges home owners to schedule regular dryer vent cleaning service without delay.
Bob Dougherty owns Dryer Vent Wizard in Nassau County, NY explains the warning signs indicating danger with his customers. If a load of clothes takes more than one cycle to dry there may be a clog building up in the dryer vent hose. Other important signs include: clothes coming from the dryer hotter than normal, the outside of the dryer gets very hot indicating a poor air flow in the dryer vent, the laundry room becomes much more humid than normal and a burnt smell can be detected in the laundry room.
Residents who have dryer vent cleaning done by the Wizard (http://oceanside.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) enjoy peace of mind knowing their dryer operates safely and efficiently. Bob does a complete dryer vent inspection and makes necessary repairs to improve dryer performance by maximizing airflow.
The flexible dryer hose of times past is a major source of problems. It can crush easily and cause dryer exhaust, lint and moisture to leak into the home. In addition, the accordion design creates places where lint can accumulate and cause a dryer fire. The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard comes prepared to replace these inferior dryer vent systems with solid metal material that meets current safety standards.
In these tough economic times good dryer maintenance makes good money sense as well. An improperly functioning dryer vent can cost home owners as much as $18 to $24 per month. As the air flow is restricted by dryer vent hose clogging the dryer becomes unable to operate at peak efficiency consuming more energy.
Simply calling a qualified dryer exhaust technician will eliminate not only the danger of loss of property and life in a house fire but will also make the home more energy efficient, not to mention proper care of expensive clothing that can easily be damaged by exposure to excessive heat.
Don’t wait and assume everything is alright and that a devastating fire cannot happen. The lack of common warning signs does not mean all is fine. Be safe and have the Wizard perform a dryer vent inspection.
