    Dryer Vent Cleaning Wilmington Wizard’s Main Focus is Preventing Dryer Fires


    Most dryer fires are caused by lint build-up in the dryer vent system which restricts air flow and leads to overheating

    Wilmington DE – The Wilmington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is making a difference in the community, educating consumers while making clothes dryers safer and greener. Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually resulting in deaths, injuries and property damage. Most dryer fires are caused by lint build-up in the dryer vent system, blocking air flow and causing over heating.

    Gerry Rhen, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, provides a very important home service while advising his customers about the hazards associated with poorly vented clothes dryers. The Wizard ( makes sure his customers understand the importance of a properly maintained system that meets manufacturers’ safety standards.

    The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wilmington Wizard urges homeowners to have their dryer vent systems inspected regularly. Check outside to be sure the dryer vent is operating properly and exhaust air is escaping. If it is not, the vent is clogged and must be disconnected and cleaned, then reconnected before using the dryer again.

    Dryer vent cleaning and proper dryer vent installation promotes maximum dryer performance, eliminates a fire hazard, extends dryer longevity and saves energy by reducing drying time. Clogged dryer vents, left unchecked, can cause wear and tear on the dryer, resulting in pre-mature break-down and void the manufacturer’s warranty.

    Gerry Rhen was inspired to go into the dryer vent cleaning and installation business when he realized how many people are still using the plastic, vinyl and flexible-foil dryer ducts which are not in compliance with dryer vent safety standards. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs solid metal dryer ducts which are vented outdoors and completely up to code. Visit to learn more.
