Santa Rosa, CADIY dryer vent repair is not recommended by the Wizard.  Dryer vent cleaning is one very important maintenance task that is often neglected.  Some homeowners will do their best to clean the areas that are easy to access but many hesitate to pay a professional for dryer vent cleaning service.  The sad part is that the most difficult areas to reach are the most hazardous.  Dryer lint has no problem accumulating throughout the entire dryer vent system, so each missed spot can restrict airflow and lead to a dryer fire.

Failure to clean dryer vents is the leading cause of dryer fires.  Improper dryer vent installation can also be hazardous.  Though an easy concept, DIY dryer vent repair, cleaning and installation is not always sufficient to ensure safety and several critical errors are often made by homeowners who install their own dryer duct.

People who have never cleaned their dryer vent or those who are using the old style, vinyl or flexible foil dryer vent system are not aware of the possible fire hazard in their home.  Rhonda Nole, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard ( is amazed at how some people go years or decades without a problem while others experience a devastating fire within a year or two of buying a new home or installing a new dryer.
