Dryer Vent Cleaning by the Marin County Wizard Promotes Health and Safety 

A clogged dryer vent can be a fire hazard as well as a breeding ground for mold, bacteria and other microbial debris that effect indoor air quality



Marin County, CA – The Marin County Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard addresses a number of issues associated with clogged dryer vents. In addition to being a fire hazard, a clogged dryer vent can cause health problems. The combination of dryer lint and moisture is a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew and that’s not all!

When the Wizard performs a dryer vent inspection and cleaning service, lint is not the only culprit blocking airflow. Also found in a dryer vent are socks and underwear, dryer sheets, nuts stored by small animals, birds, rats and rodents nests and droppings, and construction debris from new homes and remodels.

According to Dryer Vent Wizard, ( small animals, birds and bees find this warm area an inviting place to set up housekeeping. They put the lint to use and bring in more nesting materials. Rodents also leave their droppings behind to add to the bacteria already growing in the dryer vent. These pests are disease carriers and their droppings and nests can be hazardous to the health.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning technician will remove all obstructions and offer dryer vent sanitizing to ensure the system is hygienic. This additional service will remove the nests and debris using a series of tools and professionally sanitize the vent line to prevent exposure to health risks. The technician will also install a pest proof vent cover to help eliminate future infestation.
