Dryer Vent Repair by the Arlington Wizard Can Add Years of Life of the Clothes Dryer

Clothes dryers are sturdy appliances but they require maintenance to operate safely and efficiently

Arlington VA – The Arlington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says the clothes dryer is a sturdy appliance but it requires proper maintenance for safety and performance. Air flow is the most important function of a dryer and the Wizard finds a problem with 9 out of 10 dryer vent inspections. Dryer vent repair or new dryer vent installation by the Wizard will improve dryer performance, reduce wear and tear and help lengthen the life of the appliance. Poorly vented dryers use substantially more energy and can be a fire hazard.

The dryer vent system needs a regular checkup and maintenance by a qualified dryer vent repair technician. As the dryer operates lint is produced and only about half is caught by the lint screen. The rest becomes trapped in the dryer vent system as heat is vented outside. Lint builds up in the dryer vent hose and can cause a dangerous and costly blockage.

Service by the Dryer Vent Repair Wizard is the best way to prevent lint accumulation from leading to a fire hazard. Lint build up in the dryer vent leads to restricted air flow making the dryer run longer and cost more to operate. Dryer vent cleaning and maintenance service by the Wizard ensures the dryer operates safely and efficiently.

Doug Bittner owns Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningarlingtonva.com/) serving residents and business owners in Northern Virginia. He combines education with service to help residents avoid a fire hazard as he explains how lint collects in the dryer vent hose and leads to problems. As the hose and heats up the dryer works harder and leads to a situation that is not only costly but potentially deadly.

Adding to the problem of restricted air flow in dryer vents are crimps, kinks and sharp turns in the dryer vent hose. Longer dryer vent hoses cut down on the flow of air which is crucial for proper function and efficiency. Bends in the dryer duct allow lint to build up causing the possibility of damage to the dryer and fire in the home.

Dryer vent repair by the Wizard will ensure proper airflow to prevent overheating which can damage the dryer and escalate energy costs. An obstructed dryer vent hose can cause excessive heat in the dryer and damage fine clothing and delicate fabrics.
