More than 17,000 dryer fires are reported each year with failure to clean dryer vents being the leading cause
Leesburg VA – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is making a positive difference in the community by educating consumers to prevent dryer fires. Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually resulting in deaths, injuries and property damage. Most dryer fires are caused by lint accumulation in the dryer and dryer duct, restricting air flow and causing the dryer to overheat.
Service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard provide a very important home service while advising their customers about the hazards associated with poorly vented clothes dryers. Owner Doug Bittner makes sure his customers understand the importance of a properly maintained system that meets manufacturers’ safety codes.
The local dryer vent service specialist urges homeowners to have their dryer vent systems inspected regularly to improve dryer performance and prevent dryer fires. 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.
Lint accumulation is the greatest cause of dryer fires and other dryer related problems, but poorly installed systems are also hazardous. The Wizard (http://leesburg.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) only installs metal dryer ducts that meet or exceed current safety standards to ensure safety and efficiency.
