Sterling Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Provides Vital Service to Make Home Healthier

Few people realize that the dryer vent system is an unknown source of allergens lurking in the home


Sterling VA – The Sterling Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard provides an important service to make homes healthier by addressing a common problem in the laundry area. Many people are becoming more health conscious these days, but they overlook a main source of allergens lurking behind the dryer or in the dryer vent system. Indoor air quality can be improved by having an inspection performed by a dryer vent service professional.

Over time, fittings which securely hold the dryer vent hose in place work loose. When this occurs, problems can follow, especially for allergy sufferers. Heated, moist air escapes into the home rather than out through the dryer vent making a breeding ground for all sorts of mold and bacteria. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning will eliminate this problem. The Wizard will perform a complete inspection and make necessary repairs to the dryer vent system.

The Wizard provides a vital service with education as he explains how restricted air flow leads to dryer problems. Decreased air flow caused by clogged dryer vents allows humid air to vent into the home. This condition is also a leading cause of dryer fires. Dryer vent cleaning service by the Wizard will eliminate the hazard and improve dryer performance.

Doug Bittner owns Dryer Vent Wizard (, specializing in dryer vent systems only. His main focus is creating a safe and efficient dryer vent while educating the customer. Though fire prevention is his major concern, he also explains how a dryer vented through the ceiling can be a potential threat for the allergy sufferer. Moisture can enter the vent and soak into the lint clog to create a breeding ground for mold and bacteria that can escape into the home. Dryer vent cleaning service removes the threat and improves dryer efficiency.

Some older homes vent the dryer through the floor into the crawlspace creating a hazardous condition. Hot, moist air and lint vented into the crawl space or basement is a virtual breeding ground for allergens inside the living space. A dryer vent service technician can address and fix these problems as well as the potential for a fire in the crawl space or basement of the home.
