Dryer Vent Cleaning Englewood Wizard Suggests Dryer Fire Prevention Tips
The Wizard is in action to educate consumers about important maintenance to prevent dryer related hazards
Neglected maintenance and faulty dryer vents cause over 17,000 dryer fires each year in the US. National Fire Prevention Week is observed in October, a time of the year when the number of home fires is on the rise. The Wizard works hard all year combining service with dryer fire prevention tips but he really steps up his efforts to commemorate Fire Prevention Month.
According to the Wizard (http://englewood.dryerventcleaningnow.com/), poorly vented clothes dryers will lead to substantially higher energy bills. Gas dryers must be properly vented to release carbon monoxide from the home. Poorly vented gas dryers can allow dangerous levels of this deadly gas to enter the home. Here are some dryer fire prevention tips the Wizard shares with his customers:
• Clean the lint screen or filter before or after each load of laundry
• Make sure the dryer vent system meets city, state and manufacturer’s safety codes
• Replace plastic or flexible foil systems with sold metal material
• Keep the dryer lint screen clean and wash it every few months with soap and water to remove residue from fabric softener sheets
• Have professional dryer vent cleaning done each year
• Don’t store combustibles, chemical cleaning products or chemical soaked rags near the clothes dryer or other gas appliances
• Do not leave the house or go to sleep when the dryer is running
• Check the dryer vent outside often for lint build up, blockage, damage or freezing
Dryer Vent Wizard recommends professional dryer vent cleaning to prevent fires, save energy and prolong the life of the dryer. In addition to cleaning dryer vents, Chesney will also check belts and rollers inside the back of the dryer to be sure everything is in good working order. Worn belts can cause the drum to become unbalanced and rub against other parts, causing the dryer to throw a spark and ignite the lint accumulated in the dryer vent.
Dryer Vent Wizard is licensed and certified to inspect, repair and install new dryer vent systems. Service by the Wizard will provide peace of mind knowing the dryer is operating safely and efficiently. Mitchell Chesney serves homeowners and business owners in the Denver Metro area, Arvada, Centennial, Englewood and nearby cities and communities. Visit http://www.codryervent.com to learn more.
