Ann Arbor Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Goes Beyond the Vent to Eliminate Fire Hazard

The customer tried cleaning the dryer vent herself but missed a critical step in proper dryer maintenance

Ann Arbor MI – The Ann Arbor Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard recently responded to a customer who tried cleaning her own dryer vent when she smelled something burning. When the metal dryer vent sections came apart, she was unable to reconnect them so she called the Wizard.

The Wizard went right to work, cleaning and repairing the dryer vent. Since the customer has already removed most of the lint, he knew there must be another problem causing the burning smell.

Larry Butterfield, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (, recommends professional dryer vent service to ensure the job is done completely and all hazards are eliminated. Dryer vent cleaning prevents a number of dryer related hazards including dryer fires, mold and mildew problems, bug and rodent problems and carbon monoxide with gas dryers.

The Wizard goes beyond the vent to complete the dryer maintenance process. When Larry checked the inside of the dryer he discovered scorched lint around the electrical connectors and wiring. This was indeed a serious fire hazard!

Failure to clean dryer vents is the leading cause of dryer fires, but dryer vent repair and new dryer vent installation can also make a difference.
