Dryer Vent Cleaning Leesburg Wizard Warns Homeowners about Potential Danger

The Wizard explains importance of dryer vent cleaning which is too often overlooked by homeowners

Leesburg, VA – Dryer vent cleaning should be on every homeowner’s appliance maintenance routine; however, this is the one area that is too often overlooked. According to the Wizard lint accumulation in dryer ducts is the leading cause of dryer fires.

Doug Bittner, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard explains to his customers how nearly half of lint from drying laundry escapes the lint screen and ends up trapped around the dryer drum, the motor and in the dryer ducts. Failure to maintain the dryer vent system causes the dryer to overwork and use more energy. Dryer lint accumulation causes wear and tear on the dryer motor and as the system overheats it becomes a fire hazard.

In order to ensure dryer safety Bittner suggests having a dryer vent inspection to be sure it is installed properly. Service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard (http://leesburg.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) find a problem with 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems. Professional dryer vent installation by a dryer exhaust specialist and regular dryer vent cleaning service will ensure a safer and greener clothes dryer.

In addition, Doug explains how leaks in a dryer exhaust system can lead to increased humidity in homes and allow mold and mildew growth. Homeowners with gas dryers also risk venting problems resulting in carbon monoxide poisoning. Regular dryer vent cleaning is recommended to keep clothes dryers running safely and efficiently.
