Orlando Dryer Vent Cleaning Urges DIY Homeowners to Schedule a Dryer Vent Inspection

The Wizard explains the urgency of professional dryer vent installation and good dryer maintenance for all clothes dryers, gas & electric; commercial and residential











Orlando FL – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Orlando Wizard urges DIY homeowners to schedule a dryer vent inspection and maintenance service. Professional dryer vent installation and good dryer maintenance are critical to dryer safety and performance. The Wizard finds and corrects problems with 90 percent of dryer vent systems installed by homeowners. Most systems that are over 10 years old or have never been serviced by a qualified dryer exhaust technician do not meet current safety standards.

The most common problem revealed in a dryer vent inspection is the material used for the dryer duct. Dryer ducts made of inferior material like vinyl, plastic or flexible foil should be replaced with solid metal dryer venting for safety and efficiency. All clothes dryers need to vent outdoors rather than the crawlspace or attic. All dryer ducts, even those installed by Dryer Vent Wizard require periodic maintenance. Here are some signs that dryer vent cleaning service is needed:

• Longer drying cycles
• Clothes are hot when removed from the dryer
• The top of the dryer is hot while in use
• Increased heat and humidity in the room while the dryer is running
• Windows fog up when dryer is running
• Little or no lint on the lint screen
• Lint accumulated behind the dryer
• Little or no visible exhaust coming from the vent outside

Dryer vent cleaning is an easy job for short dryer ducts but some systems are longer, with one more bends. The homeowner will do their best and clean what they can easily reach. Sadly, the most difficult areas to access pose the greatest danger. Lint has no problem getting into the hard to reach places, so cleaning most of the dryer duct is not good enough. Air flow will be obstructed when lint accumulates anywhere in the dryer vent system. The Orlando Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard will perform a complete dryer vent inspection including an airflow analysis to be sure the system is working at peak performance.

Robert Moore owns Dryer Vent Wizard, (http://www.orlandowest.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) serving the Greater Orlando area. He specializes in all dryer vent service, dryer vent inspection, cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation in homes and businesses. He is concerned about the DIY homeowner who is unaware of the changes in dryer vent safety standards.

A clogged dryer duct can cause a number of problems including increased humidity and indoor air contaminants like mold. A leak in the system can cause dryer exhaust to leak into the home. The moist lint trapped in the dryer duct is a perfect breeding ground for mold.

Gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat when not properly vented. All dryers produce lint which is flammable and failure to remove lint build up will eventually lead to a dryer fire.

There are many benefits to having regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and service including energy savings and dryer fire prevention. The fee for service quickly pays for itself in reduced energy bills, better dryer performance and longer dryer life. Visit www.dryerventcleaningorlandofl.com/ to learn more.

Fire Prevention Month Brings Sound Advice from the Dryer Vent Cleaning Orlando Wizard

The clothes dryer is the most likely appliance to cause a fire with failure to clean dryer vents being a leading cause of dryer fires










Orlando FL – When the Dryer Vent Cleaning Orlando Wizard thinks about National Fire Prevention Month, he might picture the fire department visiting grade school children to teach fire safety. Dryer vent cleaning companies and other home service providers like to join in to generate public awareness on dryer fire prevention.

People can show their spirit for National Fire Prevention Month by spotting and correcting fire hazards in the home. Robert Moore, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.OrlandoFL.DryerVentCleaningNow.com), enjoys providing an important home service while educating his customers. Besides dryer vent cleaning service, here are some fire prevention tips from the Wizard:

• Check all power cords for damage and use them safely, being careful not to overload circuits
• Check batteries in smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and make sure fire extinguishers are placed where needed and in good working order
• Plan an escape route with the family as well as a place to meet outside in the event of a fire
• Turn off space heaters and blow out candles before leaving the room or going to sleep
• Maintain all heat producing appliances, including the stove and clothes dryer

Thousands of people die each year in home fires that can easily be prevented. Unfortunately, dryer vent cleaning is the most often neglected maintenance and the result is over 17,000 dryer fires each year. Regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and service by the Wizard is the number one fire prevention tip for homeowners.

Dryer lint accumulation restricts airflow and prevents the dryer from operating efficiently. This can lead to premature mechanical break down, cost up to an additional $300 in energy bills, and a rapidly spreading dryer related fire.

While celebrating National Fire Prevention Week in October, contact a dryer vent service technician for a complete inspection and service to be sure it is fire safe and energy efficient.
