The Only Dryer Vent Cleaning, Repairing, Installing and Rerouting Wizards

Professional dryer vent services make your dryer machine run as smooth as possible

Just another laundry day... Or is it?

Time for the weekly routine of cleaning your dirty clothes. But wait! Something doesn’t seem quite right this time. The clothes are taking much longer to dry than normal. Could be nothing to worry about, but in truth, it is. This is a sign of a danger to you and your family. One of several…

5 signs your dryer vent is clogged with lint:

1. Longer drying time

If it takes your dryer longer than one cycle to dry, you may have a vent obstruction cutting off the proper airflow. Properly functioning dryers do not require multiple cycles just to dry some clothes.

2. Excess lint behind the dryer

Clogged dryer vents prevent dryer exhaust from passing freely through the vent line. This leads to lint collecting around the back of the dryer where the transition hose connects to the exhaust line.

3. It randomly shuts off

If a vent line is clogged, the heat won't be released. As the machine overheats, it may shut the drying system down in an attempt to prevent a fire! That's if you have a modern dryer with automatic shutoff.

4. No lint on lint screen

Your dryer's lint screen should have to be cleaned after each drying cycle. If the lint screen doesn't have any lint on it, there may be an obstruction preventing the lint from going where it needs to.

5. Moldy smell

Clogged vents can encourage mold growth inside the vent line and in your laundry room, producing odor and health concerns. Vent lines that don't exhaust outdoors also lead to mold growth wherever the exhaust vents.

So the clothes are taking longer to dry. This is a bit of an inconvenience, but not a life or death situation, right? Wrong!

Own an Apartment or Condo Building? You Need the Dryer Vent Wizards!

The Dryer Vent Wizards of Southeast Wisconsin has developed a process whereby dryer vents in large communities and multi-unit buildings can be cleaned efficiently and economically. Our process allows us to enter the dryer vent at its termination on the outside. Our special cleaning apparatus enters the vent, cuts the lint loose, and blows it back outside where we collect it in a vac. We actually clean the entire vent, all the way into the laundry room. We do it without entering any apartments or condos.

We clean dryer vent lines for all types of multi-unit buildings, including:

  • Apartments
  • Condos
  • Multi-unit houses
  • Townhouses
  • And more

If your apartment or condo has dryers that are in need of cleaning or repairs, call the Dryer Vent Wizards of Southeast Wisconsin to schedule an appointment! 

The Fire Danger with Dryer Vents

Not only does an obstruction in your vent line restrict airflow, it creates the very real possibility of the lint clog being heated to the point of combustion. 

Large amount of highly flammable lint + high levels of heat = fire (and loss of your home)

Simply put, you could lose your home because your dryer vent is obstructed. Many people have. In 2010 alone, the National Fire Protection Association reported an estimated 16,800 dryer fires caused $236 million in property damage, 380 injuries and 51 deaths. Most people don't realize it, but their clothes dryer is the most dangerous appliance in the home.

Dryer manufacturers recommend having your dryer vents inspected and cleaned annually. If you haven’t had yours inspected, you could already be in a potentially dangerous situation. But with a little technical magic, it’s possible to get out of the danger zone.

What Is the Difference Between a Dryer Vent and a Dryer Duct?

Nothing. The two terms refer to the same thing: the metal housing that runs from your dryer to the exhaust vent on the exterior of your home. In some parts of the country, it’s called a dryer duct. In our region, it’s mostly called a dryer vent. Whether you call it a duct or a vent, Dryer Vent Wizard is here to get the lint out!

Specialized Dryer Vent Technicians vs General HVAC Technicians

Wisconsin dryer vent services prevent fire hazards in your homeDryer Vent Wizard is your best hope of fixing your dryer vent so it will work better and won't cause a fire. No one brings as much expertise and experience to the job. In fact, we are the only company in Wisconsin focusing solely on dryer vents.

There are (HVAC) companies in the southeast Wisconsin area who claim to service dryer vents. They don’t actually correct any problems, though. They typically just shoot compressed air into the vent. Even if all the lint comes out, they haven't fixed the underlying issues causing excessive lint buildup--such as an improper roof vent or a poorly routed vent line, both of which cause lint to build up to the point your dryer cannot exhaust properly.

If you’re going to have your dryer vents cleaned, have it done by a specialist. Dryer Vent Wizard is the best at:
