Dryer Vent Inspection

Melville Homeowners Prevent Dryer Fires by Scheduling Dryer Vent Inspection by the Wizard

Regularly scheduled dryer maintenance service is the best way to prevent dryer related hazards


Melville NY – Every year over 17,000 preventable home fires occur due to improperly maintained dryer vent systems. Some home insurance providers are now requiring a dryer vent inspection before they will insure a home. An inspection by the Melville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard will eliminate the hazard and provide many other benefits to the home owner.

Restricted air flow presents the greatest danger. Lint accumulation in the dryer vent leads to a clog which is highly flammable. An overheating clothes dryer can throw a spark and quickly ignite the combustible lint. Regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and maintenance service is the only safe way to eliminate the danger.

John Ryley owns Dryer Vent Wizard (http://dryerventcleaningsuffolkcountyny.blogspot.com/), specializing in commercial and residential dryer vent inspection, dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation, while educating customers about the danger associated with poorly vented dryers. Many homes still have old style dryer vent hose which contributes to the problem of lint build up. The ridges inside trap lint and allow it to accumulate. The lint filter in the dryer catches only about 60 percent of the actual lint produced and the rest gets trapped in the dryer duct.

The Wizard will perform a complete dryer vent inspection and recommend the service needed to make the dryer work safely and efficiently. Lint is not the only culprit clogging the dryer vent but birds and small animals have been known to make nests there. A dryer vent service technician will make sure these crucial areas are free of obstruction whether the dryer vent is behind the dryer, through the ceiling or through the floor into the crawl space or basement.

The Wizard will inspect the dryer duct work to make sure it is installed properly and the right materials are used. He will replace vinyl or plastic tubing with solid metal and check fittings to make sure none have come loose. Loose dryer vent hoses allow hot moist air to escape into the home allowing for mold and bacteria to grow which can cause problems both for the health of family and pets.

Dryer Vent Wizard provides peace of mind knowing the dryer operates safely and efficiently. The family home can be made significantly safer and healthier with a simple call today to set up an inspection of the dryer vent system. Visit http://www.dryerventwizard.com to learn more.
