Canton Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Urges Everyone to Schedule Dryer Vent Inspection and Service

Failure to maintain the dryer and dryer ducts is the leading cause of dryer related fires

Canton MI – The local Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard has seen several types of dryer vent systems installed in homes. No matter which type is attached to the dryer, it is crucial to have regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service to prevent a possibly devastating fire.

Larry Butterfield, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, is familiar with all dryer vent configurations used in homes and commercial businesses with clothes dryers. Many homes have dryer ducts that vent out the wall directly behind the dryer. This is the easiest type to maintain, but should not be taken for granted. Bugs, birds, bees and rodents have been known to take advantage this warm, inviting space.

Ceiling dryer vent systems used in many homes and buildings also require periodic inspections. The hose leading up through the roof and the cap on the roof must be inspected regularly by a dryer vent technician to insure safety for the home and family.

Home insurers are aware of the existing danger in homes throughout the country so many are requiring policy holders to schedule a regular inspection of the dryer vent system. Insurance providers agree that the number one method for preventing dryer fires is regular service by a qualified dryer vent cleaning technician.

The largest investment most families have is their home. It is important to protect that investment by contacting the Wizard ( for a thorough dryer vent inspection. Common signs of danger are increased drying time and a build up of lint and dust behind the dryer. This means the dryer vent system is working inefficiently and is in need of servicing.

Absence of these visible signs does not indicate that danger is not present. The only way to enjoy peace of mind knowing the dryer operates safely and efficiently is to have a dryer vent inspection and service by a qualified dryer exhaust technician.

Proper dryer vent installation and regular dryer vent cleaning service will eliminate several home hazards while increasing dryer efficiency and improving dryer performance. Dryer vent cleaning extends the life of the dryer and reduces chances of break-down.
