The Wizard says that Regular Dryer Vent Cleaning Service is the Best way to Prevent Dryer Fires

Professional dryer vent installation using the right materials is also important for proper dryer function and safety 



Farmington Hills, MI – Dryer vent cleaning service is so important and beneficial that it’s a wonder everyone isn’t lining up to schedule an inspection now. More than 17,000 dryer fires occur each year, resulting in deaths injuries and nearly $200 million in property damage. Pets die and people lose their homes when they are not careful with the clothes dryer.

The majority of dryer fires are caused by lint build up in the dryer duct or inside the dryer cabinet around the motor and heating element. With gas dryers, the flame is there and the combustible lint could easily ignite. Poorly vented gas dryers can also be a carbon monoxide threat. Periodic dryer vent cleaning service eliminates the hazard and improves dryer performance. The dryer works faster and reduces energy bills too.

Inferior dryer vent systems are also hazardous. dryer vent cleaning service technicians are most concerned with people using the vinyl, coiled plastic vent tube or light weight foil that can burn easily and allow a dryer fire to spread quickly. A solid metal vent will contain a small spark until it goes out.

Another problem with some dryer vent systems is the length. The dryer cannot efficiently vent air through a duct that is longer than 25 feet, if it is straight. Each 90 degree turn reduces the maximum length by 5 feet; 45 degree turns by 2-1/2 feet.

Dryer Vent Wizard ( finds a problem with 90% of dryer vent systems that they inspect, especially if they were installed by a DIY homeowner. The cheap, easy to install kits found at the hardware store are fine for a bathroom exhaust fan, but they are not safe to use for a clothes dryer.

Dryer Vent Wizard is the highest qualified dryer vent service technician in the nation with independently owned locations in every state. Residents and business owners are strongly encouraged to call the Wizard for an inspection right away to avoid disaster. Visit to learn more.
