Lancaster Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Helps Residents Protect their Largest Investment

The home is typically the most valuable investment a family makes, but danger could be lurking in the laundry room

Lancaster PA – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is dedicated to helping area residents protect their most valuable investment; their home. Many people are unaware of the danger that could be lurking the laundry room, a danger so potentially devastating that many home insurers are now requiring dryer vent inspections.

Maintaining the dryer vent system is often overlooked by homeowners who are unaware of the danger lurking in their laundry room. The lint screen only traps about half of the lint produced by drying laundry. The rest becomes trapped in the dryer vent hose, restricting air flow responsible for removing moist heat from the home.

Jerry Strausbaugh owns Dryer Vent Wizard (, specializing in dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation for homes and businesses with clothes dryers. He will do a complete inspection and make necessary corrections to ensure maximum airflow which is critical to the function of the clothes dryer.

The Wizard explains to his customers how over time the lint accumulates on the sides of the dryer duct and causes a blockage of air flow. Think of it as a deadly vascular blockage of the dryer vent system. The more the air flow is reduced the more the blockage builds and that leads to increased heat and the danger of a fire beginning in the clogged dryer vent.

The solution is simple. Contact a qualified dryer exhaust specialist for an inspection and cleaning of this important system. The dryer vent flow system must work properly for several reasons including fire prevention, energy efficiency, health of family and pets, proper care of expensive and delicate clothing.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that a simple vacuuming of the dryer vent system is enough. To properly clean and maintain this crucial system takes an expert who knows how to tighten all the fittings and properly clean the dryer vent hose and caps to minimize future build up to the dryer vent system.

The Wizard will perform a complete cleaning and repair to prevent excess heat and moisture from entering the home and creating a breeding ground for allergens to grow. He will also make necessary corrections to eliminate kinks and sharp turns that restrict airflow and allow excessive lint accumulation in the dryer vent tube.
