There are various basic hazardous errors well-meaning homeowners and handymen make when installing dryer vent systems

Sacramento, CA — The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard informs DIY residents about installing their own dryer vent systems. Though venting a clothes dryer is an uncomplicated principle, there are a number of common essential errors that might bring about problems. Most dryer fires are caused by a blocked dryer duct; but unfortunately, some are caused by incorrectly installed dryer vents or those constructed of inferior material.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Sacramento Wizard makes sure superior materials are used for safe dryer vent installation. Dryer vent systems installed by the Wizard are in compliance with instructions and guidelines put in place by one or more of the following authorities: IRC (International Residential Code), Underwriters Laboratories, Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Fire Protection Association and/or dryer manufacturers.

Gina Fazil is the Sacramento Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard. She installs inflexible metal dryer vents to ensure peak safety and functionality. Metal dryer ducts have a smooth interior finish that enables lint to pass through with ease so it will be less likely to build up. Metal dryer ducts are also less likely to permit a dryer fire to spread. If a spark from within the dryer happens to come in contact with lint it will likely burn itself out before it can spread.

Gina explains that semi-rigid metal is fine for transition ducts but is only designed for linking the dryer vent system to the dryer and should not be used for the entire dryer vent line.

Professional dryer vent installation is encouraged to ensure good air flow and dryer safety. Parts should be connected using metal foil tape, rather than screws, duct tape or other sorts of fasteners. Screws project to the inside and snag lint enabling it to accrue. Foil tape can hold up against greater temperature variations and seal connections suitably.

Dryer vent tubes that exceed 25 feet could require a booster fan to help the dryer perform safely and efficiently. The dryer service tech with Dryer Vent Wizard can install a booster fan to enhance adequate air flow.

Dryer Vent Wizard can install a no pest vent cap with a low profile hood and pest resistant door to help keep bugs out. The hood has a low airflow resistance to allow a sufficient amount of venting while preventing insects and mice from infesting the home through the dryer vent outside.

Pet lovers hold a higher likelihood of dryer vent blockages due to animal hair

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is advocating an important notice to animal lovers. The fact about these wonderful furry pals is that animal hair integrated with dryer lint is a considerable fire hazard.

Larry Butterfield, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, identifies the increased risk of a dryer fire transpiring in houses with pets. Pet hair may wind itself around lint and dust to create a larger and denser obstruction in the dryer vent system. Tumbling articles that collect pet hair like clothes, comforters, bath towels and pet bedding can multiply the amount of lint that clogs dryer ducts and hampers airflow.

Dryer lint collecting is the primary cause of dryer fires. Join the already existing hazard with household pet hair and the probability of experiencing a dryer fire increases tremendously. Excess build-up of pet hair will produce a larger obstruction in the vent line to hinder dryer performance and cause the dryer to get too hot.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard merges service with education to help users recognize the urgency of professional dryer maintenance. He makes it a point to know if his customers have dogs or cats so he can pass on the added alert about pet hair.
