Dryer Vent Wizard of Madison Keeps Burke Homes Safe From Dryer Fires
Yearly Dryer Vent Cleaning Keeps Dryers Running Safely & Efficiently
Is your home at risk of a fire breaking out in your laundry room? It is if you haven’t had your dryer vent line cleaned in over a year. Lint-clogged dryer vent lines account for approximately 15,000 fires every year. The damages range from an incinerated dryer and a house full of toxic smoke to a pile of smoldering rubble where there once stood a house.
There’s an easy way to keep your Madison area home safe from dryer vent fires: schedule a yearly vent cleaning with Dryer Vent Wizard of Madison. As the only dryer vent cleaning service dedicated solely to dryer vents, we are the company to call for dryer vent cleaning in Burke.
Your dryer vent line is probably clogged if:
- It takes two or more cycles to dry your clothes
- There’s condensation on the walls and ceiling of your laundry room
- The lint screen isn’t doesn’t catch lint evenly, or at all
- Your dryer has a moldy smell
- There’s a burning smell from your dryer
- The top of your dryer gets really hot
- Lint accumulates around the door of your dryer
Burke Dryer Vent Wizard Does More than Just Clean
Dryer Vent Rerouting
Dryer ducts need to exhaust outside your home in the shortest distance possible—25 feet or less. Hot, damp air that stalls in the vent line will back up into your dryer, causing you to run your dryer longer to get your clothes dry. Rerouting vent lines to take the shortest distance to an exhaust vent will save you money on your energy bill and wear and tear on your dryer and your clothes.
If your vents exhaust into your basement, or anywhere else indoors, contact Dryer Vent Wizard immediately. Indoor venting (or into an attic or crawl space) causes condensation, which leads to rampant mold growth. If you have a gas dryer, you’re also at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Dryer Vent Repair
Metal dryer vent lines are quite sturdy, but we often come across vent lines that have been crimped or crushed, have rust holes in them, or that aren’t solidly connected. No matter what the problem, our vent techs take care of it. If the damaged length of vent line cannot be repaired, we’ll replace it with a new one, securely connected with metal foil tape.

Dryer Vent Installation
Dryer Vent Wizard installs new dryer vents and replaces old lines in full compliance with all building codes for dryer vent safety. We use galvanized aluminum venting, routed to take the shortest distance possible from the back of your dryer to the exhaust vent on your wall or roof.
One of the most problematic sections of venting is the one that runs from the back of your dryer to the main exhaust vent--the transition hose. More often than not, they’re flimsy Mylar or vinyl wrapped hoses that are easily crushed or punctured—and they’re highly flammable. Since the exhaust from your dryer is hottest right where it exits your dryer, it’s a good idea to have us replace it with a fire resistant aluminum transition hose.
