 Chicago, IL – Dryer vent cleaning is necessary maintenance and the Chicago Wizard warns area residents about several hazards associated with poorly vented clothes dryers. Dryer Vent Wizard is the highest qualified dryer vent service provider in the nation providing dryer vent cleaning, dryer vent repair and new dryer vent installation.

When air flow is restricted by lint accumulation in the dryer ducts the dryer can over heat and cause a fire. Gas dryers, like all fuel burning appliances, must be properly vented to the outside to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard explains to his customers how a poorly maintained dryer vent system can restrict air flow and cause dryers to labor excessively as they do their job. Increased drying time is a sign of restricted air flow which leads to high energy usage and eventually becomes a fire hazard.

Other hazards of poorly vented clothes dryers include excess heat and moisture in the home leading to mold and mildew damage or mold related illness for residents. Professional dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning is the best way to be sure the dryer is operating safely and efficiently.

Mory Matias, who used to work in product development, is now dedicated to helping his local community prevent easily avoidable dryer fires. He is committed to providing a quality service for home and business owners that will help them achieve tangible safety and savings through regular dryer vent maintenance.

According to Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard of Northshore Chicago, most consumers are unaware that annual dryer and dryer vent maintenance is required to keep the dryer running properly and to prevent dryer fires. Additionally, annual maintenance can save energy and associated costs.

When a consumer finds their dryer taking multiple cycles to dry clothes or if it keeps stopping during a cycle, the cause could be lint accumulation in the vent line, causing the dryer to work inefficiently or not at all. Annual maintenance can mean lower energy bills, since the result is the dryer not having to work so long and hard to dry clothes. In addition, clothes don’t wear out as quickly when they don’t have to go through multiple cycles.

While cleaning a dryer vent may seem like a very simple and sensible thing to do, the fact of the matter is, many people just don’t do it. Time is a precious commodity for most people today. Busy households have an urgent need to get their dryers up and running safely and efficiently. This is why they call Dryer Vent Wizard to help them obtain a quick solution to their dryer vent problems.
