Waukesha Dryer Vent Cleaning Service
Don’t Let Your Dryer Become a Fire Hazard
|A lint-clogged vent line like this makes your dryer perform poorly and can cause a fire if the lint ignites from the heat of the dryer's exhaust.|
Before you start having premonitions about your laundry room bursting into flames, know the culprit of most laundry fires: lint. Every year, 15,000 fires are sparked by dryer vents clogged with lint.
How do you avoid such a disaster? By having your dryer vents cleaned annually. Not only will it save your home, it can also cut down on your energy bills.
Warning signs to watch out for:
- Dryer is exceedingly hot to touch when running
- Dryer shuts down before end of cycle
- Clothes take a longer time to dry
- Outside dryer vent hood isn’t opening while operating
What Is The Difference Between A Dryer Duct And A Dryer Vent?
Nothing. The terms "dryer duct" and "dryer vent" refer to the same exact thing: The housing that runs from your dryer to an exterior wall to vent the exhaust from your dryer. In our part of the country, the more commonly used term is "vent," although you may hear it referred to as a "duct" in other regions.

The only fire that should be burning in a house is the one in your fireplace. You tend to the fireplace, we'll tend to the dryer vent. Our quality work paired with prompt, friendly service makes for superb customer satisfaction. Get the peace of mind that comes from our professional dryer vent cleaning and repair services in Waukesha, which include:
Repairing Dryer Vents – If you have one of those flexible, foil or vinyl-covered dryer vents and it's been stepped on or punctured by a sharp object, there's no way to safely repair it. Look at it this way: This is a great opportunity to upgrade to the far safer and longer lasting metal dryer vent!
If you already have metal dryer vent tubing, there's rarely anything needing repair. About the worst we see is a section of dryer vent disconnecting from another section as a result of someone having duct taped the two pieces together. This is easily remedied with foil tape. In some instances, we've found metal dryer vent that was inadvertently crimped during installation, with the result being a nasty accumulation of lint in the crimped area. We repair dryer vent issues like these whenever possible, but usually the best solution is to simply replace the damaged section of dryer vent.
Cleaning out Dryer Vents – Just like a clogged drain in the shower creates a swimming pool in your bathroom, a lint-clogged dryer vent causes a buildup of hot air. Left running long enough, it can ignite and cause a fire in your home. Our Waukesha dryer cleaning specialists remove all the lint caught in your dryer vent, ensuring your machine runs flame-free.
Rerouting Dryer Vents – If dryer vents aren’t routed correctly, it can be very dangerous for your home. Exhaust from your dryer should never be directed inside the home--not even into an attic or garage. Dryer Vent Wizard can redirect your dryer exhaust outside.
Installing Dryer Vents – Out with the old and in with the new! If you have a run of flimsy foil or vinyl-covered dryer vent that's prone to accumulating lint and developing small holes, let us replace it with metal dryer vent tubing that will minimize the accumulation of dryer and lint most likely never need to be replaced.
With a wave of our magic wand, the experts at Dryer Vent Wizard will solve all your dryer vent problems and help prevent lint fire disasters in your home.
