What causes the danger? According to Gina Fazil, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, there are many factors that contribute. Restricted air flow through the dryer vent hose leads to an eventual buildup of lint which is highly flammable. Left unchecked, the dryer overheats and throws a spark into the lint clogging the dryer duct which ignites and causes a rapidly spreading fire. Regularly scheduled inspections with dryer vent repair service are the only safe way to eliminate the danger.

Many homes still have old style dryer vent hose which contributes to the problem of lint build up. The old plastic and foil accordion style dryer hose is no longer up to code. The ridges inside invariably begin a collection of lint with first use. The lint filter in the dryer catches only a small percent of the actual lint produced and much ends up trapped in the dryer vent hose. Dryer vent repair and cleaning by the Wizard ( gives peace of mind knowing the dryer is operating safely and efficiently.

The Wizard will also inspect the dryer vent cap on the outside which is very important. Not only do clogs occur there from lint but birds and small animals have been known to make nests there.
