Dryer Vent Cleaning Virginia Beach Wizard Joins Efforts with Firefighters and Insurance Companies
Firefighters and home insurance providers urge homeowners to have regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and service to eliminate dryer related hazards
Nancy Cunningham, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard advises homeowners that that dryer fires occur more frequently than chimney fires. Over 17,000 dryer fires are reported annually, resulting in deaths, injuries, and nearly $200 million in property damages. In response to this growing trend, some manufacturers have installed safety devices to shut the dryer down when sensors detect restricted airflow. Of course, like anything else, these safeguards are not 100%. They can wear out or fail.
Firefighters see first hand the devastation caused by a clogged dryer vent. They recommend annual dryer vent inspection and maintenance service to ensure safety. Insurance companies are starting to require dryer vent cleaning and maintenance to reduce the risk of dryer related fires.
Dryer Vent Wizard (http://drywizventcleaners.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) service technicians advise their customers that poorly vented dryers, due to improper dryer vent installation and maintenance can create excess humidity in homes, leading to mold and mildew damage and illness to sensitive residents. Gas dryers that are not vented properly can cause carbon monoxide to leak into the home as well.
There are many benefits to having professional dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service including faster drying time, energy savings, and most important, dryer fire prevention. As lint accumulates in the dryer duct and inside the dryer cabinet, the heating element can overheat and act as a conduit for fire if it should create a spark. Dryer lint is flammable and it will become fuel for a rapidly spreading fire.
Annual dryer vent cleaning will ensure the dryer operates safely and efficiently to prolong the life of the appliance, provide energy savings of $18 - $24 per month and prevent the dryer vent lines from becoming a fire hazard. Failure to clean dryer vents leads to a fire hazard, increased drying time, significantly higher energy bills and wear and tear on the dryer.
