Tiburon, CA – Spring time is a great time to have dryer vent cleaning service. The Tiburon Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard asks, “Do you know what’s in your dryer vent?” Typically out of sight, the dryer vent system is rarely given a second thought. Dryer lint accumulation is the most common culprit found in the dryer vent system and most hazardous.

Rhonda Nole, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard says customers are often surprised at what she finds in their dryer duct. Animal hair, bird and bee nests and evidence of bugs and rodents in addition to dryer lint can accumulate in the dryer duct and reduce airflow. This makes the dryer work harder and take longer to get clothes dry; therefore, wasting energy and running poorly.

More than 17,000 dryer fires in the US with nearly $200 million in property damage, deaths and injuries each year. Failure to clean was cited as the leading factor contributing to dryer fires in residential buildings. Similar reports by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) confirm annual maintenance of dryers and dryer vents as a home safety issue lacking consumer awareness.

This is why service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizarddryerventcleaning.com/) work to encourage public awareness about the importance of dryer vent cleaning. Other causes of dryer fires include faulty dryer vent systems, improperly installed dryer vents, combustible substances and materials in and around the dryer and sometimes, dryer malfunction. Owners should avoid drying rags soaked in flammable solvents even if they have been washed first, because residue can remain and the heat from the dyer can cause them to ignite.

Rhonda advises her customers to keep the laundry area free from flammable material such as newspaper, cardboard boxes and flammable chemicals and cleaning solvents. Even if these items are not the cause of a fire, they will provide fuel to allow a fire to spread and cause more damage. These items are better stored in a shed or garage, away from heat producing appliances.
