Service by the Delray Beach Dryer Vent Wizard is Top Priority for Smart Homeowners

Spring cleaning can produce rewarding results and dryer vent cleaning tops the list for beneficial qualities





Delray Beach, FL – Annual inspections and dryer vent cleaning service is at the top of the list for spring cleaning chores. Spring cleaning season is a time of hard work producing great rewards as residents find lost items and donate clothing and other seldom used things to charity. A clean closet and organized utility room can make a big difference.

Dryer vent cleaning also produces its rewards, including fire prevention, energy savings, improved dryer performance and extended dryer life. Energy savings is a huge benefit because poorly vented clothes dryers cost an additional $300 per year to operate.

Horatio Chiorean, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningpalmbeach.com/) repairs or replaces many weathered or worn dryer vent covers at this time of year. When homeowners are outside washing windows and siding, sweeping and sealing the deck and pulling weeds from the flower garden, they may notice how the old cracked dryer vent hood, covered with moss sticks out like a sore thumb.

Horatio notices this more than most people because he is in the business of dryer vent cleaning and maintenance. Chiorean suggests people check their dryer vent when they’re performing seasonal home and yard maintenance. Look for signs of damage or birds or bees nests which can block air flow and create a fire hazard. The best way to ensure proper function is to check it when the dryer is running. The vent flaps should open when the dryer is running and close when it is off.

More than 17,000 dryer fires occur each year, resulting in deaths, injuries and property damage. Fires occur when lint accumulates in the dryer or in the dryer vent system, blocking the flow of air and causing excessive heat build-up. Poorly installed dryer vents can also be hazardous. Horatio will perform a complete dryer vent inspection and airflow analysis then carefully explain his findings to the customer.

Dryer Vents and Christmas Lights – What do they have in Common?

Dryer vent cleaning prevents dryer fires; is your dryer vent safe for the holiday season? Dryer Vent Wizard continues to work hard to make clothes dryers safer and more efficient. As they perform their services, they take the time to explain what they are doing and why it is important. Educating customers on dryer fire safety is an important part of their service.

Like dryer vents, Christmas lights are also a fire hazard that many people are not aware of or they just don’t give it much thought. When air flow is blocked, dryer vents overheat and lead to a dryer fire. Old Christmas lights with frayed cords can also over heat and cause a fire.

Dryer vent cleaning is the number one way to prevent dryer fires. Here are some tips for preventing fires caused by Christmas lights:

Choose lights that are safety tested by a reputable laboratory, for example UL (Underwriters Laboratories) or ETL (Electrical Testing Laboratories). This information will be noted on the packaging the lights come in if they are deemed safe by these laboratories.

Use the mini lights; the older style, larger bulbs burn much hotter. Choose lights that have fuses in the plugs.

Check your lights before hanging them each year; look for broken sockets, loose connections and frayed or bare wire.

Check the wattage when replacing burned out bulbs.

For outdoor decorating, check the package to be sure the lights can be used outdoors. Plug outdoor decorations into a GFCI outlet and secure lights with insulated holders, not tacks or nails.

Dryer vents and Christmas lights have more in common than one would think. Both can be fire hazards. Never leave the house or go to sleep when the dryer is running and the Christmas lights are on. Clean dryer vents annually and check Christmas light strands for damage and wear before using. Dryer Vent Wizard wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season.

Cleaning Dryer Vents for Home Safety: Advice from the Wizard of Delray Beach


Dryer vent cleaning Delray Beach FL: Clothes dryers require air flow to operate efficiently and to prevent overheating that can lead to a fire. Dryer vent cleaning promotes proper air-flow, improves the efficiency of your clothes dryer and prevents dryer fires.

Drying time increases as your dryer exhaust vents become clogged with lint and other debris. If you notice your dryer taking more time to properly dry your laundry, lint build-up is most likely the cause. As drying time increases and your dryer continues to labor the system becomes overheated because the hot air cannot escape through clogged vents. This increases energy consumption while eventually leading to a fire.

When it starts taking longer to dry your laundry, it is not due to an aging dryer; it is most likely an airflow problem. When air flow is restricted the moist heat cannot escape the dryer drum; therefore, it would make sense that the clothes would not dry.

Some dryer vents are short and straight and can easily be cleaned by the homeowner; others are quite long, depending on where your laundry room is located. Some dryers are vented through a stack on the roof; others are vented through an outside wall about two feet above the ground.

Extra long dryer ducts that make several turns may require special tools and equipment to properly clean. A professional who specializes in dryer vent cleaning will have the tools needed to do the job.

Professional dryer vent cleaning is recommended at least once a year to prevent fires, extend the life of your dryer and help save on energy costs. This said the fee for the service is well worth the savings it promotes in the long-run.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Saves $300 per Year

Dryer Vent Cleaning Delray Beach FL: Like with any appliance, there are several things that can go wrong with a clothes dryer; however, most problems are fixed with simple maintenance. The most important thing your dryer needs in order to operate is air-flow. Think about it; the heat and moisture from your wet laundry has to go somewhere in order for the load to come out dry. If there is a blockage in the dryer vent system the heat and moisture are trapped in the drum or somewhere in the exhaust duct.

There are several things you can do to properly maintain your clothes dryer. Obviously, keeping the lint screen clean is one of them. The lint screen should be cleaned after every load of laundry. Fabric softeners and dryer sheets can cause a residue to build up over time; the lint screen should be cleaned with hot, soapy water every few months to prevent air-flow blockage.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Lint build-up in the dryer duct restricts air-flow; this is the most common problem found when a clothes dryer isn’t functioning properly. Not only is this a fire hazard; it also causes your dryer to work harder and use more energy. A clogged dryer vent can increase your utility bills by nearly $300 per year.

Many dryers have longer ducts with places that are difficult for the average homeowner to get to. A professional has the tools required to do the job efficiently.

Inside the Dryer

Lint also builds up inside the dryer, in the slot for the removable lint filter, the vents on the back panel, around the motor, drums, pulleys and other essential parts of your dryer. A dryer vent cleaning professional has the knowledge and tools to get to all the areas where lint gets trapped.

It is important that your dryer exhaust system is properly installed and that the right materials are used. Older systems use vinyl, plastic or flexible foil for the exhaust duct; studies have proven this to be unsafe. A professional inspection is recommended to be sure your system is safe.

Manufacturers suggest having a professional provide dryer vent cleaning and maintenance at least once a year to be sure your dryer is venting properly and the system is up to current safety standards.

Dryer vent cleaning is the most important maintenance you can do for your dryer. Poor maintenance causes the dryer to overwork putting undue stress on the motor, bearings, belts and other parts of your dryer. Failure to properly maintain your dryer exhaust ducts will eventually result in a fire.
