Area Residents Learn to Prevent Dryer Fires from the Tinley Park Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard

Regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and cleaning will eliminate a number of dryer related hazards



Tinley Park – Every year over 17,000 preventable home fires occur due to improperly maintained dryer vent systems. Some home insurance providers are now requiring dryer vent inspection before they will insure a home. Tinley Park residents are learning the best way to prevent dryer fires is to have dryer vent cleaning performed by the Wizard.

Restricted air flow presents the greatest danger. Lint accumulation in the dryer vent hose leads to clog which is highly flammable. An overheating clothes dryer can throw a spark into the flammable lint. Regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service is the only safe way to eliminate the danger. Call Dryer Vent Wizard today to schedule an appointment.

Joe Enzenberger owns Dryer Vent Wizard (, specializing in dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation, while educating customers about the danger associated with poorly vented dryers. Many homes still have old style dryer vent hose which contributes to the problem of lint build up. The old plastic and foil accordion style dryer hose does not meet today’s building and safety standards. The ridges inside quickly begin collecting lint with first use. The lint filter in the dryer catches only a small percent of the actual lint produced and much ends up trapped in the dryer vent hose.

The Wizard will also inspect the dryer vent cap on the outside which is very important. Not only do clogs occur there from lint but birds and small animals have been known to make nests there. This also restricts the flow of air through the dryer hose leading to increased danger of home fires. A dryer vent cleaning technician will make sure these crucial areas are free of obstruction whether the dryer vent is behind the dryer, through the ceiling or through the floor into the crawl space or basement.

The Wizard will inspect the dryer duct work to make sure it is installed properly and the right materials are used. He will replace vinyl or plastic tubing with solid metal and check fittings to make sure none have come loose. Loose dryer vent hoses allow hot moist air to escape into the home allowing for mold and bacteria to grow which can cause problems both for the health of family and pets.

Dryer Vent Wizard provides peace of mind knowing the dryer operates safely and efficiently.
