The clothes dryer is a simple, sturdy appliance that will continue to work safely and efficiently for years as long as it is properly maintained. Even an older clothes dryer should be able to dry a load of laundry within an hour. Increased drying time is not an indicator of age or wear. It is a warning sign of a serious fire hazard. Dryer vent cleaning will improve dryer performance and minimize the risk of a dryer fire.

According to Bob Bryfogle, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (, most dryer performance problems are the direct result of poor ventilation. Proper dryer maintenance will extend the life of the dryer while improving safety and maximizing performance. Customers say they notice a remarkable difference after dryer vent cleaning service by the Wizard.

The dryer vent system is the most important function of the clothes dryer. It provides airflow to remove heat and moisture from tumbling laundry. Contrary to popular belief, the dryer vent is not designed to carry dryer lint out of the home. Some will make it to the outdoors, and about 60 percent will be caught in the lint screen. The rest will escape into the dryer cabinet to interfere with working parts or accumulate in the dryer duct. This happens because lint is moist when removed from laundry. It will stick to the sides of the dryer vent tube where it dries to a hard paste and attracts more lint. As the lint accumulates, air flow is reduced and clothes take longer to dry. Dryer vent cleaning service will speed up drying time and prevent a dryer fire.

As the dryer duct becomes clogged with lint, the dryer begins to work longer and harder to do its job, using substantially more energy. When left unchecked, the situation becomes hazardous. Lint is highly combustible and all it takes is a small spark from within the dryer to start a rapidly spreading fire. The hazard can be eliminated by calling Dryer Vent Wizard for a dryer vent inspection and service.

Increased drying time is the most common warning sign indicating the need for dryer vent cleaning service. Other signs include clothes being excessively hot after a dry cycle, a moldy or musty smell, little or no visible lint on the lint screen and the outside of the dryer being hot to touch while operating. Excessive heat and humidity in the laundry room while the dryer is operating is another bad sign.

Dryer Vent Wizard will perform a thorough diagnostic analysis of the entire system from the dryer to the termination at the vent duct then provide the customer with an assessment. Contact the Wizard for a complete inspection including airflow analysis and enjoy peace of mind knowing your dryer operates safely and efficiently. Visit to learn more.
