There are several critical errors well meaning homeowners and handymen make when installing dryer vent systems
Roseville CA – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard warns DIY homeowners about installing their own dryer vent system. Though dryer vent installation is an easy concept, there are several commonly made errors that often lead to disaster. Most dryer fires are caused by a clogged dryer duct; however, some are caused by poorly installed dryer vents or those constructed of inferior material.
The Roseville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard uses high quality materials to ensure safe dryer vent installation. Dryer vent systems installed by the Wizard comply with current safety codes according to requirements set forth by one or more of the following authorities: IRC (International Residential Code), Underwriters Laboratories, Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Fire Protection Association and/or dryer manufacturers.
Dryer Vent Wizard (http://dryerventcleaningrosevilleca.com/) installs rigid metal vents for maximum safety and efficiency. Metal vents have a smooth interior finish that allows lint to easily pass through making it less likely to accumulate. Metal dryer ducts are also less likely to allow a dryer fire to spread. If a spark from the dryer should come in contact with lint it will likely burn itself out before spreading.
Semi-rigid metal is acceptable for transition ducts but is only intended for connecting the dryer vent system to the dryer and should not be used for the entire dryer duct run.
Professional dryer vent installation is advised to ensure maximum air flow and safety. Parts should be connected using metal foil tape, not screws, duct tape or other types of fasteners. Screws protrude to the inside and catch lint allowing it to accumulate. Foil tape can withstand greater temperature variations and seal connections properly.
Dryer vents that exceed 25 feet may need a booster fan to help the dryer run safely and efficiently. The Wizard can install a booster fan to promote proper airflow.
The Wizard can install a no pest vent cap with a low profile hood and pest proof door to help keep bugs out. The hood has a low airflow resistance to allow adequate venting while keeping pests from entering the home through the dryer vent outdoors.
