Dryer Vent Wizard of Suffolk County - Open for Business and Taking All Possible Precautions!
Dryer Vent Wizard is open for business, providing dryer vent service to ensure the safety of your home. With 15,500 dryer fires in the US every year, you can trust us to keep your family safe. Call us if it takes more than one cycle to dry a load of laundry, if the cabinet of your dryer feels hot to the touch, if the dryer stops repeatedly during a cycle, or if your clothes have a moldy smell. In the spring, call immediately if you see birds flying in and out of your outdoor vent termination. Our technicians wear gloves, masks and shoe covers, and we disinfect the work area. Many cleanings can be done from the outside of the home. Call John today at 516-263-5712 with any questions or concerns.
