The Wizard shows how precautionary care goes a very long way and reasons why dryer repair is rarely the answer to dryer performance problems
The local dryer vent cleaning professional makes plain the reason why dryer repair might not be the answer to a typically experienced clothes dryer concern. Hiring a dryer repair tech might actually result in costing extra money, especially if they are not trained to address the problem. Some dryer ailments, like longer drying cycles, have to be addressed by a certified dryer exhaust technician, not a general appliance service. In fact, a dryer repair technician is very likely to charge a service charge for identifying an obstructed dryer duct and afterwards recommend a dryer vent cleaning company to handle the problem.
As explained by Manny Diesman, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard of Forest Park and the Greater Chicago area (http://www.forestpark.dryerventcleaningnow.com/), most dryer performance problems are the result of a blocked dryer duct or just poor air flow caused by improper dryer vent installation or using substandard material. A clogged dryer vent is usually the cause of poor dryer operation and only a total dryer vent cleaning service will be able to cure this problem. Increased drying cycles because of restricted airflow is almost always caused by a blocked dryer vent. Lint accumulation is often the offender and only a qualified dryer exhaust technician should be contracted for dryer vent cleaning service.
Contrary to popular opinion, extended drying cycles are not triggered by aging or wear. Even an older clothing dryer should be capable of drying a load of wash in an hour or less. Whenever the dryer begins taking longer to complete its job then the Wizard recommends asking for a dryer vent inspection in lieu of consulting a dryer repair service.
According to the Wizard, other clues that indicate the need for dryer vent cleaning service are: excessive heat and mugginess in the utility room, laundry coming out unusually hot to the touch or the dryer is hot while running, a moldy or burnt smell during dryer operation, little or no lint on the lint filter or extra lint stuck to clothes. All of these are indications of a clogged dryer vent and when left unattended, can produce increased energy bills or worse, a dryer fire!
