Wall vents are safer and more popular but maintenance is necessary for them as well. Even a short dryer duct can become clogged with lint accumulation which can block airflow and lead to a dryer fire. Service by Dryer Vent Wizard ( is the best way to eliminate this hazard.

Home and family are most valuable so it is important to have the dryer vent system inspected regularly by a qualified dryer exhaust technician. All dryer vent systems require airflow to function so dryer vent cleaning is vital to proper operation. Most homeowners do not realize that the lint screen only catches about 60 percent of the lint removed during drying laundry. The rest escapes into the back of the dryer and the dryer duct leading to the vent outdoors. As the flammable lint accumulates, air flow is restricted and the system overheats to create a hazardous condition.
