Superior Milwaukee Dryer Vent Service
Milwaukee Dryer Vent Cleaning Specialists Get Rid Of The Leading Source Of Dryer Fires: Lint
Dryer Vent Wizard protects Milwaukee residents from a danger most people aren’t even aware is threatening their lives. The greatest warning of this hidden threat: your dryer takes longer than one cycle to dry your clothes.
You could be innocently watching TV while and out of nowhere a fire erupts in your laundry room. Did you know it only takes 15 minutes for a fire to completely engulf a laundry room in flames? From there, a fire can quickly spread to the rest of the house, with the very real possibility of burning it to the ground.
The reason for the inferno: Lint. Most dryers have cheap vents installed for convenience to the installers. These are the flexible vinyl or Mylar foil wrapped dryer vents we're talking about. The outer covering sags on the metal spiral frame, forming nooks and crannies where lint can easily get trapped and build up. Eventually the lint clogs the vent completely, causing heat to build up in the vent to the point it ignites the trapped lint.
It gets worse: Because vinyl and Mylar are flammable, the fire is not contained in the venting. It quickly spreads to the lint on the floor behind your dryer, your flooring, your wall, the clothing you have in your laundry room...you get the idea.
If you have a newer dryer with an automatic shutoff feature in case of overheating, you might get lucky. Or you might not. Every year, there are an average of 15,000 fires started by dryers. Many could have easily been prevented by simply having a yearly dryer vent cleaning. If you have a big family, or do more than 5 loads of laundry per week, it's a good idea to step up the cleaning schedule to once every six months.
Signs Your Dryer Vents May Be Clogged:
- Clothes aren't fully dry even after a couple of dry cycles
- The outside of your dryer feels really hot to the touch
- The dryer shuts down mid-cycle for no apparent reason
- You notice condensation forming on your ceiling, walls and windows near your dryer
Dryer Vent Cleaning and Maintenance Services: The Technical Sorcery You Need!
Dryer Vent Cleaning
There’s no better company to work on your ducts than Dryer Vent Wizard because dryer vents are all we do. Our dryer vent cleaning removes all lint clogs, making your dryer vent hazard-free. You get the added bonus of a more efficient dryer--your clothes take less time to dry and your dryer uses less energy.
Dryer Vent Repair
Often, dryer vent lines are so poorly installed (duct tape, usually) they are actually coming apart where they should be firmly connected. Other times, an amateur installation job resulted in screws being drilled into the housing--which then become handy collectors for lint. Dryer Vent Wizard offers vent repair services for broken or malfunctioning dryer vent lines.
Dryer Vent Installation
If you have one of those flimsy vinyl or foil wrapped dryer vents, you need to contact us ASAP for a dryer vent installation that isn't a fire waiting to happen. We'll remove the cheap, old vents and replace them with solid or flexible aluminum venting. Because these vents have smooth interior walls, lint doesn't built up as readily as it does inside those flexible vents. And if lint inside were to catch fire, it would be contained within the aluminum venting.
One of the biggest problems with dryer vent routing is when it takes a long and circuitous route to the outside of your home. Not only does this promote lint buildup, but the heat from your dryer may not be able to fully expel outdoors.
You can check this by looking at the vent flaps on the exhaust outside your house. If the vent flaps aren't pushed open by the force of hot air being released from your dryer, you either have a clogged line or the venting is too long. In either case, you need Dryer Vent Wizard.
Our dryer vent rerouting service will not only find the shortest distance from your dryer to the outdoors, with the least amount of bends, but also ensure your vent lines are securely mounted to your ceiling joists or walls so you won't have problems with them falling down or posing a fire hazard due to heating a nearby surface.
