How the Schaumburg Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Applies the 80-20 Rule to Dryer Vent Service

80% of American homes have clothes dryers and only 20% of owners are safe from dryer fires and other dryer related hazards

Schaumburg IL – The Schaumburg Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard explains how he applies the 80-20 rule to clothes dryers and dryer ducts. Over 80 percent of people own a clothes dryer, yet, sadly, only 20 percent are safe from dryer related hazards. Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually with failure to clean dryer vents being the leading cause. 90 percent of all appliance fires are dryer related.

Manny Diesman, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard is on a mission to eliminate dryer fires in his community by educating homeowners while providing dryer vent service. He explains the warning signs to watch for, including increased drying time, little or no lint on the lint screen, excess lint left on clothing, dryer stopping during a cycle, clothes are hot to the touch or have a moldy smell after a cycle, or the top of the dryer heating up while running.

According to Dryer Vent Wizard ( service technicians in addition to dryer fires, poorly vented clothes dryers can cost an additional $300 per year to operate. Gas dryers must be properly vented to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Faulty dryer ducts can allow excess heat and humidity into the home, making the AC work overtime as well.

As a result of increased media attention and diligent dryer exhaust technicians, the frequency of dryer fires has decreased significantly over the last decade. Though things are moving in the right direction, the local dryer vent service provider is dedicated to doing even better as he makes a positive difference in his community.

Dryer Vent Wizard does a thorough 10-point dryer vent inspection to check for holes in the dryer duct, improper venting, damaged or missing vent cap, air flow speed and over-all dryer exhaust functions. They check the entire length of the dryer duct work for lint build-up.

Dryer Vent Wizard will make necessary corrections to dryer vent systems, repairing or replacing dryer ducts and expertly routing them for adequate airflow to efficiently expel heat and moisture so tumbling laundry dries as quickly as possible.
