Sept. 1, 2010 - PRLog -- Hartford, CT – A recent dryer fire could have been prevented with proper dryer vent installation.  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 of Hartford County, specializes in dryer exhaust issues.  “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.”

One of the most common mistakes John finds is a dryer vent tube made of corrugated vinyl or flexible foil.  “These systems sag, allowing 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.  The hot, moist air can cause mildew damage to your home and allow mold spores and other contaminants into the air.”

The reason homeowners choose the vinyl dryer vent tubes is because they are very easy to install.  According to Moffat, these systems are not compliant with today’s safety standards.  “We only install dryer vent systems made of solid metal,” said Moffat.  “If your clothes dryer throws a spark it will go into the dryer duct.  A clean, metal duct is likely to contain the spark until it burns itself out.  A plastic or vinyl duct will create fuel to get a fire started.”

Professional dryer vent installation by the Wizard ensures your dryer is operating safely and efficiently.  All dryer vent systems, even the very best, require maintenance.  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 cleaning is recommended at least once a year to maintain dryer safety and efficiency.

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.  Visit http://www.dryerventwizard.com to learn more.
