Fitchburg Specialists Clean and Repair your Dryer Vents
Keep Your Family Safe with Yearly Dryer Vent Cleaning
There are approximately 15,000 laundry room-related house fires every year caused by lint clogs in dryer vent lines. Lint accumulates in dryer vent lines over time & obstructs the flow of exhaust from your dryer. If exhaust gets blocked by a highly flammable ball of lint, it’s only a matter of time before the whole vent hose catches fire.
You can protect your Madison area home & prevent a fire in your dryer vent line by calling Dryer Vent Wizard. We offer yearly dryer duct cleaning to remove built-up lint, virtually eliminating the possibility of a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. If you have a large family, own a condo or apartment building & do more than 5 loads of laundry per week, fire departments recommend cleaning vents at least twice yearly.
How to Tell if Your Dryer Vent is Clogged
- You can smell mold when you’re near your dryer (caused by moisture not exiting the dryer due to lint clog).
- It smells like your dryer is burning. Because it probably is. It’s most likely lint inside the vent line or dryer housing getting scorched.
- You notice condensation on the walls and ceiling of your laundry room.
- The lint screen doesn’t catch lint evenly, if at all.
- There is lint around the door of your dryer when you open it.
- Your clothes need more than one cycle to dry.
- The exterior of your dryer is hot to the touch.
Unlike other local companies, we specialize in dryer vents. It’s all we do. We’ve seen every imaginable problem with dryer vents and know exactly what needs to be done to ensure your dryer vent lines are clean, up to code & correctly installed in order to minimize the chance of a fire.
In addition to dryer vent cleaning, Dryer Vent Wizard also installs dryer ductwork, replace those low-quality vent lines with rigid aluminum vent lines, reroute improperly routed vent lines & make repairs to existing vent lines as needed. We can also give your dryer a thorough internal cleaning—which is highly recommended if your dryer is more than 10 years old.

Dryer Vent Cleaning
If you have a gas dryer, you’re at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning, unless the lint clog doesn’t ignite and catch your house on fire first. Local Fire Marshalls routinely recommend having all dryer vents (gas or otherwise) cleaned at least once per year.

Dryer Vent Rerouting
Dryer venting is often done poorly to cut costs, but the fires it causes can cost you your life. The best chance of preventing fires is getting exhaust outside in as short a distance as possible. Our technicians will reroute your dryer vent in the safest, most efficient manner possible using flame-resistant material.
Contact us if your dryer is exhausting into your home – such as into an attic, crawl space, or garage. You risk having mold develop, and carbon monoxide poisoning if you have a gas dryer. We will route your dryer vent to an exterior wall so it can be safely exhausted outside.

Dryer Vent Repair
Dryer vents sometimes detach from their connection to your dryer and can get crushed. If they’re made of low-quality material, they can even have small punctures in them. Often the person who installed the long runs of dryer venting used duct tape to secure sections of the venting together, and over time it has fallen off due to the heat and humidity of exhaust in the vent.
Dryer Vent Wizard will secure your loose aluminum venting with foil tape to prevent sections of the vent from disconnecting and releasing exhaust into your home. We also replace vinyl or foil wrapped venting with better quality aluminum venting.
