Dryer Vent Wizard

This post is Not Sponsored and all opinions are my own.

When is the last time you cleaned your dryer vent?  A family member bought a new LG dryer and it gave a warning that the dryer vent was mostly blocked.  When the manual was reviewed she found out that when it went above a certain percentage the dryer would actually not run anymore until the dryer vent was cleaned.

I actually have a dryer vent cleaner kit that I bought from FlyLady.net years ago, but it is not available anymore.  But, when the house was inspected we realized that the dryer vent went under a bedroom and out the other side of the house!  No way was my kit going to be able to clean that.

We did some searching and found out that there was a Dryer Vent Wizard location that covered Northern Nevada.  (And I just found out that they are nation wide).

The guy from Dryer Vent Wizard came out and within a few hours the dryer vent was completely cleaned out and the dryer was working great!  It turns out the vent piping was over 60% blocked!

Per https://www.usfa.fema.gov/prevention/outreach/clothes_dryers.html

‘2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. Failure to clean the dryer (34 percent) is the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires.’

So, when was the last time that your dryer vent was cleaned and are you going to put it on your To Do list for this year?

Oh, and if you are WordPress wizard could you explain where my sidebar went?  It was the area where I set up the tags, etc.  Thanks!
