The Wizard provides great advice and easy tips for keeping clothe dryers operating safely and efficiently


Littleton CO – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is dedicated to spreading the word about the importance of dryer maintenance to prevent dryer fires and several other problems in the home. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service is important for keeping dryers operating safely and efficiently.

According to the Wizard, failure to clean dryer vents is the cause of most dryer performance problems and dryer related fires. Lint accumulation restricts airflow, causing a dryer to over work, leading to increased drying time, higher energy bills, and eventually, a dryer fire. Lint is highly flammable, so all it takes is a spark from inside the dryer to start a rapidly spreading fire.
