Dryer Vent Cleaning Leesburg Wizard Warns Homeowners about Putting off Most Important Maintenance

The Wizard explains why dryer vent cleaning so important; yet, often neglected by busy homeowners


Leesburg, VA – Dryer vent cleaning should be a high priority item in every homeowner’s maintenance schedule; however, this is the one area that is often overlooked according to Doug Bittner, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard. Lint accumulation in the dryer duct is the leading cause of dryer fires. Dryer vent inspection and service by the Wizard is the best way to eliminate the hazard.

Doug Bittner explains to his customers how 40 percent of lint from drying laundry escapes the lint screen and ends up trapped inside the back of the dryer around the motor and in the dryer duct. “Failure to maintain the dryer vent system causes the dryer to overwork and use more energy,” said Bittner. “Dryer lint build-up causes wear and tear on the dryer motor and when the system overheats it becomes a fire hazard.”

When asked what people can do to prevent dryer hazards, the Wizard (http://leesburgdryerventcleaning.blogspot.com/) explains, “Have a dryer vent inspection to be sure the system is installed properly. I find a problem with 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems.” Professional dryer vent installation by a dryer exhaust specialist and regular dryer vent cleaning service will ensure a safer and greener clothes dryer.

Doug also explains how leaks in a dryer exhaust system can lead to increased humidity in homes providing a breeding ground for mold and mildew growth. People with gas dryers also risk venting problems resulting in carbon monoxide poisoning. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service is recommended to keep clothes dryers running safely and efficiently.
