Huntington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Explains how Dryer can Cause Both Fire and Water Damage

Dryer vent service by Wizard can eliminate several dryer related hazards while improving dryer performance

 



Huntington NY – The Huntington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard explains how one appliance can cause both fire and water damage to the home. The home is probably the most important investment any family will make and serious danger could be lurking in the laundry room. This danger is so real that many home insurers are now addressing the problem by making requiring a dryer vent inspection before they will insure.

The fire hazard is easy to understand, but how can a dryer cause water damage to a home? John Ryley, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard explains how the dryer functions by removing moisture during the heating of wet laundry. Essentially the moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer in the form of humidity which is released through the dryer vent hose. With poorly maintained systems, the dryer lint mixed with humidity equals a dangerous clog. When the humidity cannot escape it can provide a breeding ground for mold and mildew.

A full load of wet clothes contains about a half a gallon of water. Lint is created from clothing as water is removed during the drying process. The lint screen traps about 60 percent of the lint created and the rest becomes trapped inside the dryer in the dryer vent system. The moist lint begins to line the inside of the dryer duct building over time until air flow is restricted. A spark from inside the dryer can cause the flammable lint to ignite and cause a rapidly spreading fire. Service by Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com) will eliminate the problem.

A dryer vent system that is not properly moving the moist heated air to the outside can be releasing the air to the inside. When the humidity increases in the laundry room while the dryer is operating this indicates a venting problem. Besides being a fire hazard this venting of humid heated air into the house creates an environment for mold and bacteria to grow. Anyone with allergies knows this can be a miserable situation in the home.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Huntington, NY: Dryer Lint - Danger Lurking in your Home

Dryer Vent Cleaning Huntington: Dryer vent cleaning is one of the most important; yet, the most often neglected, appliance maintenance chore. Dryer vent cleaning eliminates a fire hazard while increasing the efficiency of your clothes dryer.

Almost every home has a hidden fire hazard; a clothes dryer! Actually, the clothes dryer isn’t the real danger; the dryer exhaust ducts and dryer vent are. Over time, lint build up in the dryer exhaust ducts, blocking air flow, causing overheating, and resulting in a devastating fire.

Professional dryer vent cleaning is recommended to remove the lint build-up and to be sure the dryer exhaust system meets current safety standards. Many homeowners like to do as much as they can, on their own, rather than paying for professional services.

Some dryer vents are very short and easily accessible; therefore, the can be maintained by the homeowner. Other systems require the use of special tools and equipment that a dryer vent specialist uses to do the job.

For the do-it-yourself type there are tools available in most hardware of home improvement stores. There is an attachment that can be attached to a drill. The rotating action of the auger brush and flexible rods will help access and clean the areas of your dryer ducts where lint builds up. The tool comes with several flexible rods that screw together to reach into longer vents. Once you have scrubbed the ducts, you can blow them out with a shop vac. A variety of hand tools are also available to purchase.

If you have an exceptionally long dryer duct system, or if you are unsure as to whether or not your system is properly installed or if it meets current safety standards, it is a good idea to have a professional dryer vent specialist inspect the system, to be safe.

Fire departments strongly recommend dryer vent cleaning at least once a year to remove lint accumulation before it becomes dangerous. Lint build-up can also prevent proper ventilation of carbon monoxide if you have a gas dryer.

If you are the type who likes to do it yourself to save money then at least have your system inspected and professionally cleaned one time to be sure it is safe. Then do the maintenance on your own. Since a thorough cleaning is recommended each year, maybe you can pay for professional dryer vent cleaning every two to three years, as long as you’re doing your part too.
