Dryer Fire Spurs Dryer Vent Wizard into Action to Encourage Everyone to Clean Dryer Exhaust Vents
Thankfully no one was injured and very little damage occurred
The early morning dryer fire caused minimal damage and no injuries. Though lint accumulation in the dryer vent system is the leading cause of dryer fires, the cause of this one could not be determined. Firefighters said the fire started in the dryer, which was completely destroyed, but caused minor property damage and smoke damage to the home.
Due to an increase in media attention, many people are diligent about cleaning the lint filter, but unfortunately, few are cleaning dryer exhaust vents and the space where the lint screen slides into.
Dryer lint accumulation blocks airflow, leads to overheating, and eventually, a dryer fire. The lint is highly flammable and provides fuel for a rapidly spreading fire. Very rarely does a dryer fire cause minimal damage. A dryer fire can burn very quickly and cause total destruction within minutes.
Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com) encourages everyone with a clothes dryer to clean dryer exhaust vents regularly and have the Wizard perform an annual dryer vent inspection to be sure everything is working as it should be.
The clothes dryer is a simple machine that rarely breaks down if it is properly maintained. Most dryer performance problems are directly related to the dryer vent system, not the dryer itself.
Dryer Vent Wizard is the highest qualified dryer vent service provider in the nation, specializing in commercial and residential dryer vent cleaning, dryer vent repair and new dryer vent installation. Visit http://cleandryerexhaustvents.blogspot.com/ to learn more.
