Dryer Vent Cleaning Modesto Wizard Addresses 2 Common Myths about Dryer Vents

Myth: Newer homes are built with maintenance free dryer vent systems and increased drying time means time to buy a new dryer












According to the Modesto Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, all dryer vent systems require maintenance. There is no such thing as a maintenance free dryer vent system. Even one that is professionally installed by the Wizard will need dryer vent cleaning service.

James Smith, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.californiadryerguy.com/) often clears up 2 common myths when he is talking to his customers about their dryer vent system. “Many people who own newer homes believe their dryer vent system is more efficient; therefore, making dryer vent cleaning unnecessary. They couldn’t be further misled! Some newer homes are built with the laundry area located in the center of the home, near upstairs bedrooms, rather than on an outside wall on the first floor. This requires a much longer dryer duct, often containing bends and turns, which can restrict air flow and make the dryer work harder. These systems actually require more maintenance because lint is more likely to accumulate in longer dryer ducts.”

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Modesto Wizard provides valuable information to his customers while performing an important service. He explains why dryer vent cleaning and professional dryer vent installation according to current building and safety standards is critical to dryer safety and performance.

The second commonly believed myth is that increased drying time means time to buy a new clothes dryer. “This is a common and dangerous misconception because when clothes take longer to dry, this is a warning sign that lint accumulation is reducing air flow,” said Smith. “If left unchecked, this can lead to the system overheating and causing a fire.”
