Larkspur Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard in Action to Help Take Control of the Home and Prevent Dryer Hazards

The clothes dryer is often taken for granted while dangerous hazards lurk within the dryer vent

Larkspur CA – According to the Larkspur Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, few people give serious thought to hidden hazards in the home. The dryer vent system, out of sight, out of mind, is often taken for granted while hazardous conditions lurk inside. Proper dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning is vital to dryer safety.

Rhonda Nole owns Dryer Vent Wizard, specializing in residential and commercial dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation. All types of dryer vents require maintenance. Ceiling dryer vents require periodic maintenance from the back of the dryer to the roof cap. This service should only be handled by a qualified dryer vent service technician.

Dryer vents going through the wall are the most common in homes and often easier to maintain. No matter what type of system is installed, Dryer Vent Wizard ( urges residents to have an inspection to be sure it is properly installed to meet current safety standards.

Air flow is vital to the safe and efficient operation of a clothes dryer. Most people do not realize that the lint screen only catches a little over half the actual lint produced. About 40 percent escapes to the inside of the dryer cabinet and into the dryer ducts where it sticks to the sides and attracts more lint. Eventually, the accumulation will block air flow and lead to overheating and a fire.

The Wizard says dryer vent service is especially important in apartment housing and attached condo units. An entire complex of homes can be affected by the improper care of the dryer vent system. Public safety is a concern for everyone involved and the responsible action to take is to schedule a dryer vent inspection. Encourage other residents in the complex to share the concern and schedule dryer vent cleaning service.
