Star Residents Eliminate the Danger of Home Fires with a Dryer Vent Cleaning Service Call
(EMAILWIRE.COM, February 24, 2012 ) Star ID Every year over 17,000 preventable home fires occur due to improperly maintained dryer vent systems. Many home insurers are now making mandatory inspection of this critical system before they will insure ones home. A simple phone call to the Star dryer vent cleaning Wizard will eliminate the danger of dryer vent fire in the home as well as many other benefits to the home owner.
What causes the danger? There are many factors that contribute. Restricted air flow through the dryer vent hose leads to an eventual buildup of lint which is highly flammable. With restricted air flow through the dryer vent hose heat builds up to a dangerous level and ignition occurs. Regularly scheduled inspections of the dryer vent system are the only safe way to eliminate the danger. Call the Star Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard today to schedule an appointment.
Mike Alder owns Dryer Vent Wizard, specializing in 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 old plastic and foil accordion style dryer hose is no longer up to code. The ridges inside invariably begin a collection of lint with first use. The lint filter in the dryer catches only a small percent of the actual lint produced and much ends up trapped in the dryer vent hose. As the lint builds up a clog eventually occurs.
The Star Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard will also inspect the dryer vent cap on the outside which is very important. Not only do clogs occur there from lint but birds and small animals have been known to make nests there. This also restricts the flow of air through the dryer hose leading to increased danger of home fires. A dryer 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 hose to make sure there are no breaks as the old plastic vent hose becomes brittle over time. He will replace faulty tubing and check fittings to make sure none have come loose over years of use.
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 healthy with a simple call today to set up an inspection of the dryer vent system.
