Danger lurks in 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems inspected by the Wizard
Raleigh NC – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Raleigh Wizard finds a problem with 9 out of 10 dryer vent inspections. The Wizard has corrected several problems with dryer vents installed by homeowners and building contractors. Though he has encountered a wide array of errors, he was shocked at what he found at one job.
The customer expressed his appreciation as he praised the Raleigh Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard for his professional workmanship that eliminated a serious fire hazard:
“Mr. Buie solved a problem that persisted for years. We had our dryer vent cleaned on two occasions by other companies with little to no improvement on our drying time. Finally we found Mr. Buie after he was recommended to us by an appliance repair person who replace the dryers heating element (for the 3rd time). After spending almost an hour testing things, he discovered the vent line stopped at the roof and did not exhaust to the outside. To our amazement the builder never drilled a hole which would have allowed the dryer to vent properly. We feel lucky we did not have a fire. Mr. Buie is a true Wizard!”
Professional dryer vent installation and regular Dryer Vent Cleaning is necessary to eliminate an imminent and growing danger that could be lurking in the crawl space, basement, or laundry room. More than 17,000 dryer fires occur in the U.S. each year with devastating results. Jim Buie, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningraleigh.blogspot.com/) works to promote consumer awareness on the importance of a safe and efficient dryer vent system.
One of the most common problems Jim Buie finds today are out-dated dryer vents made of plastic, vinyl or flexible foil. According to Buie these vents sag or become crushed when people attempt to push dryers closer to the wall. The resulting curvature in the vent prevents heat and moisture from escaping, making laundry take longer to dry. As the lint builds up, it creates a highly flammable clog that could ignite from the extreme heat of a running dryer.
Jim Buie serves homes and businesses in Northeast North Carolina, including public laundries and pet shelters, apartments and condos, anyone who has a clothes dryer. “Many citizens are not aware that dryer vent cleaning is necessary to prevent dryer vent fires,” said Buie who has seen the results of a dryer fire first hand.
