Viza Vent


There are 15-20,000 fires a year caused by clogged dryer vents that is why I have created the “Viza Vent”.

The “Viza Vent” is clear, flexible, heat resistant tubing that would replace our tin foil accordion dryer vents. Clogged vents push our dryer to work harder, which increases the chance of fire, drives up our power bills and leaves our clothes damp, wrinkled and less desirable to wear. This also has a more user friendly way of connecting to the dryer instead of the “Knuckle Bleeder” clasp we all are accustomed to.

“Viza Vent” lets you see any lint build up or items disrupting its normal air flow causing the aforementioned problems. We can all see clearly the “Viza Vent” is a user friendly product that will reduce our chance of fire, save money, time and patients while making sure we look good in our everyday lives.

No matter if you own or rent, everyone needs a “Viza Vent”.
