Service by the Dryer Vent Cleaning Lancaster PA Wizard Improves Indoor Air Quality in the Home

Moldy smells from a leaky dryer vent system can trigger allergy symptoms for sensitive residents…it is also a warning of a pending fire hazard

Lancaster PA – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard warns residents that the moldy smells coming from a faulty dryer vent system are a warning sign of pending disaster. A clogged dryer vent system is a serious fire hazard.

A home that smells of mold and causes allergy symptoms like sneezing, watery eyes and runny noses, is not a pleasant place to be. When the source of this problem is a poorly vented clothes dryer, then there is an added risk of a dryer fire.

Over time, several unseen things can create hazardous conditions behind the dryer. Dryer duct fittings come loose. Lint accumulates in the dryer vent hose. Heat and humid air escapes into the home rather than being vented outside and with it dust, lint particles, and a dwelling place for dust mites is generated.

Jerry Strausbaugh, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, addresses problems associated with poorly vented dryers every day. Dryer vents are the Wizard’s main focus and they are the experts to call for dryer vent cleaning, repair or new dryer vent installation service. When Jerry visits a customer’s home, he does a complete inspection of the dryer vent system and explains his recommendations so the customer understands how will make the dryer operate safer and greener.

Simply vacuuming out the dryer vent hose is not enough. More and more home insurers are realizing the danger and making dryer vent cleaning service mandatory. In an average home a loose dryer hose fitting can increase the inside humidity by as much as 30%. Service by Dryer Vent Wizard ( will eliminate this problem.

Regularly scheduled inspections of the dryer vent system in the home will reduce the unseen creepy crawlers that contaminate indoor air quality. A dryer vent service technician can perform repairs and adjustments to make the system perform to perfection.

Home insurers realize this and are trying to educate homeowners of the extreme fire danger inherent in an unclean dryer vent system. As the lint builds up in the dryer vent hose, the air flow becomes restricted retaining more and more heat until a fire occurs. Regularly scheduled service by the Wizard will eliminate this hazard and promote safety in the home.

Be safe and don’t wait for the extreme sign of dust hanging from the back of the dryer or on the outside wall. With a ceiling dryer vent system the lint may even build up in and around the vent cap on the roof. By this time the danger is high and a dryer vent service should be called immediately.

Left unchecked these conditions will lead to a fire and costly repairs to the home and at very least to the dryer, both financial investments well worth the inexpensive visit by a dryer vent cleaning service today.
