A poorly installed dryer vent system caused major smoke damage to a home; things could have been much worse
Dryer vent cleaning technician, John Ryley is concerned with the number of people who are unaware of the dangers associated with poorly vented clothes dryers. Too many people take their appliances for granted and few realize that clothes dryers are the most likely appliances to cause a fire.
A recent dryer fire in Guilderland, NY caused major smoke damage to a home. Firefighters said the dryer was not properly vented to the outside and that lint had accumulated and blocked the flow of heat, leading to a fire. The homeowner said she never goes to sleep or leaves her home when the dryer is running, a smart habit that may have prevented things from being much worse. “Too bad she was unaware of the importance of regular dryer vent cleaning service,” said Ryley.
John Ryley, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, said, “Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually with most of them caused by failure to clean dryer vents. Improper dryer vent installation is also a problem. Poorly vented dryers cost more to operate and can lead to other hazards including mold and carbon monoxide with gas dryers.”
In addition to fire prevention, dryer vent cleaning promotes faster drying time; therefore, reducing energy costs. Dryer vent cleaning allows maximum airflow to prevent the appliance from undue stress leading to dryer malfunction and break-down. Professional dryer vent installation by Dryer Vent Wizard ensures clothes dryers are operating safely and efficiently. “I find a problem with 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems that I inspect,” said Ryley.
