Can You Get Your Dryer Vent Cleaned During a Pandemic?
What You Need to Know About Dryer Vent Wizard's Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has everyone on edge. With schools and non-essential businesses closed across Wisconsin, getting your dryer vent cleaned probably isn't the most pressing concern most people have right now. However, the danger of a fire caused by clogged vent lines is still very real and for this reason, Dryer Vent Wizard remains open for business as an essential services provider—with a few restrictions.
Here’s what you need to know:
Dryer Vent Wizard Services for Residential Customers
All locations will continue offering all dryer vent services for residential customers.
We understand that no one wants to take the risk of having a stranger come into their home while we’re all advised to maintain social distancing, but if your dryer is making a burning smell when you run a load of laundry or your clothes don’t come out dry even after multiple cycles in the dryer, you likely have a clogged vent line that is putting your home at risk of a fire. Our technicians will take every precaution possible to ensure the safety of your family—including the use of face masks, protective gloves and booties, and a disinfecting wipe down of any surfaces they come into contact with.
Dryer Vent Wizard Services for Multi-Unit Buildings
If you own or manage an apartment building, condominium, or other multi-unit residential building, you can have your dryer vent lines cleaned without worrying about the potential spread of the coronavirus. Because we access the vent lines from the exhaust vents on the outside of your building, there is no need for any contact between our technicians and your residents and no risk of transmitting the virus.
The feasibility of any additional work which would need to be performed inside your building will need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. For instance, if the work involves entering a communal laundry room, we would need to determine if the work is essential for the safety of your building and then develop a plan to ensure the safety of both your residents and our technicians.
