Danger lurking in the laundry room leads home insurance providers to require dryer vent inspection and cleaning service
Woodmere NY – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard urges area residents to protect their most valuable investment; their home. Many people are unaware of the danger that could be lurking the laundry room, a danger so potentially devastating that many home insurers are now requiring preliminary dryer vent inspections and cleaning before insuring the property.
There could be an extreme fire hazard lurking in the dryer vent system. The removable lint screen only catches about 60% of lint produced. The rest becomes trapped inside the dryer and dryer duct as moist heat is released outdoors through the wall or ceiling, and sometimes to the basement or crawl space.
Bob Dougherty owns Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningnassaucountynewyork.com/), specializing in dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation for homes and businesses with clothes dryers. He will do a complete inspection and make necessary corrections to ensure maximum airflow which is critical to the function of the clothes dryer.
The Wizard explains to his customers how over time lint accumulates on the sides of the dryer vent hose and restricts air flow. As the flammable lint builds up, air flow is slowed down until the system overheats, the dryer throws a spark and a rapidly spreading dryer fire occurs.
Dryer fire prevention is simple. Contact a qualified dryer exhaust specialist for an inspection and cleaning of this important system. The dryer vent system must work properly for several reasons including fire prevention, energy efficiency, health of family and pets, proper care of expensive and delicate clothing.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that a simple vacuuming of the dryer vent system is enough. To properly clean and maintain this crucial system takes an expert who knows how to tighten all the fittings and properly clean the dryer vent hose and caps to minimize future build up to the dryer vent system.
The Wizard will make necessary repairs to prevent unwanted heat and moisture from entering home and providing allergens a place to grow. He will also make necessary corrections to eliminate kinks and sharp turns that restrict airflow and allow excessive lint accumulation in the dryer vent tube.
Dryer Vent Wizard can clean, repair or replace dryer vent systems in homes and businesses to make them as safe and efficient as possible. Bob Dougherty serves Nassau County, Woodmere, Valley Stream and nearby cities. Visit http://www.dryerventcleaningwoodmerenewyork.com/ to learn more.
