Muskego Dryer Vent Cleaning

Don’t let lint in your vent line start a fire

Would it surprise you to learn that doing the laundry can start a fire in your home? Every year, approximately 15,000 house fires are started by trapped lint inside dryer vent lines igniting from the hot exhaust of the dryer blowing over it. Fanned by hot air, a vent line fire grows quickly. Once it reaches the flammable plastics in the typical dryer, the fire quickly spreads. An entire laundry room can become a raging inferno in just 15 minutes. Contact the Dryer Vent Wizard of Southeast Wisconsin to schedule an appointment.

How does lint get inside dryer vents?

Every time you run a load of laundry in your dryer, tiny fibers come off of it as the clothing and towels tumble in the dryer. These tiny fibers are what we know as lint.  Even though dryers have filters to catch it, some always gets past the filter. Over time, it accumulates inside your dryer and in your vent line—providing just the tinder needed for a fire.

How do you know if your dryer vent needs to be cleaned?

Additional Services

You can’t see inside a dryer vent to know if there’s a lint clog, but your dryer will give you clues:

If you notice any of these signs, don’t use your dryer again until you’ve had your vent line inspected and cleaned. In fact, if you haven’t had your dryer vent line cleaned in over a year—or if you have no idea when the vent line was last cleaned—schedule an inspection by Dryer Vent Wizard before you run another load of laundry in your dryer. It’s just not worth the risk.

Dryer Vent Wizard of Muskego Services

Dryer Vent Cleaning - Accumulated lint in the vent is like tinder. Heat buildup inside the dryer vent can easily heat lint to the point of combustion. If you have one of those flexible foil or vinyl wrapped tubes, it will literally go up in flames in a minute. The best way to prevent a fire is to have your dryer vents cleaned at least once a year, twice per year if you do more than 5 loads per week.

Dryer Vent Rerouting - Dryer vent lines need to take the shortest route possible to the outside vent. The longer the run, and the more twists and turns it takes, the harder it is for the dryer exhaust to actually reach the outside vent and the greater the chance of a lint clog igniting. Our dryer vent technicians will reroute your vent line for the shortest, most efficient route possible.

If your dryer vent exhausts into your home, your attic or a crawl space, it really needs to be rerouted to exhaust outdoors. The condensation and lint particulate released by an interior dryer vent is unhealthy for homes and humans, and if you have a gas dryer you run the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Dryer Vent Repair – Older dryer vent lines often sag and develop gaps where the sections connect. We can secure your vent line so all sections connect securely. If there are sections that Joe Handyman tried to secure with screws, we’ll replace them. A screw protruding into a vent line is like a magnet for lint.

Dryer Vent Installation – If you recently moved into a house with no dryer vent line, or a house with an older vent line in poor condition, Dryer Vent Wizard can install a new vent in full compliance with today’s building codes. Since we are licensed to do structural work, we can also install an exterior vent if necessary.

If your vent line is one of those flexible vinyl wrapped vent lines, it needs to be replaced with a rigid metal vent line. Vinyl and foil wrapped vent lines are known fire hazards, and all dryer manufacturers now have a warning label cautioning against using them for the transition vent (the short section from your dryer to the main vent line), or the main vent line.
