The Wizard corrects common errors by well-meaning homeowners that can lead to disaster



Rancho Cordova, CA – Dryer Vent Wizard service technician in Rancho Cordova compares DIY dryer vent installation to professional service. Homeowners are doing all they can to cut cost including their own home repairs and maintenance. When it comes to installing a new dryer vent the Wizard urges everyone to hire it done by a qualified dryer exhaust technician to be safe.

A clogged dryer vent is the biggest cause of dryer fires but poorly installed dryer vent systems can also be hazardous. Even if it’s clean as whistle, an improperly installed dryer vent system can restrict airflow and lead to a dryer fire. Poorly vented gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat.

Gina Fazil, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (, noticed a serious problem during a routine dryer vent inspection. The customer did not expect a problem since her home was newly build, but Gina explained to her that newer homes where the laundry facilities are located upstairs and away from outside walls require even more extensive maintenance than older homes with a shorter dryer duct.

In some cases the homeowner can clean their own dryer vent system, but it can be messy and time consuming. It is very important to do a complete cleaning and not skip the difficult to access areas. There are no areas that lint cannot get to. The missed spots will become a fire hazard as moist sticky lint accumulates in those areas. Dryer vent cleaning by the Wizard is the best way to be sure the job is done correctly and completely.

Gina advises her customers that all dryer vent systems, new and old, need regular maintenance. Lint is produced by all laundry and it will build up in dryer vent systems and the inside the dryer where a small spark can cause it to ignite. Dryer lint is highly flammable and the perfect fuel to feed a rapidly spreading fire.

Gina replaces inferior dryer vent systems such as vinyl or flexible foil with solid metal vents to comply with current safety standards. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs state of the art dryer vents to allow adequate air flow required by a clothes dryer.
