Prevent Fire and Water Damage to the Home with Service by the Vallejo Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard

The Wizard joins efforts with insurance providers to make dryers safer and greener


Vallejo CA – The Vallejo Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says there are many benefits to maintaining dryer vents, yet many people neglect to have it done. The home is the largest investment families make, so why do they ignore the danger that lurks in the laundry room? The danger is so real that many home insurance providers are addressing the problem by requiring an inspection of the dryer vent system before they will insure the property.

Why is the home dryer vent hose and system so important? The dryer functions by removing heat and moisture from tumbling laundry. The moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer in the form of humidity. This humid, warm air is then vented outside through the dryer vent hose. Without airflow, the dryer will not function properly. Dryer vent cleaning removes lint accumulation to prevent air flow restriction, overheating and eventually, a dryer fire.

Gina Fazil, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (, specializes in dryer exhaust issues while educating customers about dryer fire prevention and dryer care. Her customers are surprised to learn that a full load of wet clothes contains about a half a gallon of water. Lint is created from clothing as water is removed during the drying process. That lint builds up in the lint filter trap, which only traps about 60% of the lint produced. The rest becomes trapped in the back of the dryer or stuck to the sides of the dryer vent tube as heat and moisture are vented to the outside. The moist lint begins to line the inside of the hose accumulating over time till crucial air flow is restricted and a clog occurs. Anytime during this process a fire can break out as lint is highly flammable and with restricted air flow more heat builds.

The Wizard addresses a number of problems when she inspects, cleans, repairs or installs new dryer vent systems. She will perform a test to analyze airflow speed before and after service to show the customer the difference.

A dryer vent system that is not properly moving the moist heated air to the outside is venting the air to the inside. An excessively humid laundry room usually indicates a dryer vent problem. Besides the fire danger this venting of humid heated air into the house gives rise to a prime place for mold and bacteria to grow. Anyone with allergies knows this can be a miserable situation in the home.
