Though the risk of a dryer fire might not seem an imminent threat, it's much more likely than many people realize. The Ontario Office of the Fire Marshal & Emergency Management reported that, from 2008 to 2012, there were 961 dryer-related fires costing more than $17 million in damages. At least one dryer fire was reported every 48 hours! Regular dryer vent cleaning seems unimportant and is easy to forget, which is exactly what makes a dryer vent fire such a common—and expensive—catastrophe. Don't let your house, your business, or yourself become another cautionary statistic.

Benefits of Our Guelph, ON Dryer Vent Cleaning
- Fire Prevention: Dryers are the source of over 15,500 fires each year in the United States alone. A dryer fire is most commonly started due to excess lint, debris, or clogs in the dryer vent line, and a thorough dryer vent cleaning is the best way to prevent one in your home.
- Eradicate Mold & Mildew: Mold and mildew thrive in warm, moist environments, just like those that exist in dryers and laundry areas where a dryer vent clog or obstruction is present. Dryer Vent Wizard of the Golden Triangle’s cleaning services free your vents of obstructions, allowing moisture to be fully vented from your dryer and laundry area once more and hindering mold and mildew growth.
- Save Time: When your dryer vent is clogged, it traps heat and moisture in your dryer and laundry area, making the drying cycle take longer than usual. With our dryer vent cleaning, we can shorten your drying time by restoring proper airflow throughout the vent line.
- Save Energy: An inefficient dryer vent system could be costing you an average of an extra $18-$24 per month due to extended and repeat cycles. By having your dryer vent system cleaned, you can save big on energy and utility costs!
- Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Many dryers emit carbon monoxide. With a normally functioning dryer vent system, the carbon monoxide is vented outdoors. However, clogs can prevent the gas from escaping the building. A buildup of carbon monoxide is very dangerous and can result in illness and death. Regular dryer vent maintenance and cleaning can prevent buildups and keep you safe from carbon monoxide poisoning.
- Extend the Life of Your Clothing and Dryer: A clogged dryer vent can be damaging to your dryer and clothing through excessive wear during longer or repeated drying cycles and due to trapped heat and moisture. Restoring your dryer vent airflow with our dryer vent cleaning services can extend the life of your machine and your clothing!
