Dryer Vent Cleaning Manchester Wizard Provides Fall Maintenance Tips to New Hampshire Homeowners
A major part of the National Fire Prevention Month Campaign is raising public awareness to eliminate fire hazards in the home
The number one home maintenance tip is to schedule dryer vent cleaning service. Clothes dryers are one of the biggest energy users in the home and the most likely appliance to cause a fire. Carbon monoxide from poorly vented gas-powered appliances is another hazard. All fuel burning appliances, including gas dryers, must be properly vented to eliminate the hazard.
Education is a vital part of the Wizards service as he works all year to raise public awareness about hazards associated with poorly vented clothes dryers. A clogged dryer vent is the leading cause of dryer fires. Poorly installed dryer vent systems are also a major contributor to poor dryer performance and ventilation problems. Dryer vent cleaning promotes dryer safety and maximum dryer performance.
Webb Dickson, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://dryerventcleaningmanchesternh.blogspot.com/) increases his efforts during Fire Prevention Month in October by providing the following tips to his customers:
Install a carbon monoxide detector near appliances and make sure the battery is fresh and the device is working properly.
Install smoke detectors throughout the house and test them to be sure they work.
Furnace cleaning should be scheduled regularly. Check with the manufacturer or refer to the service manual for frequency recommendation.
Dryer vent cleaning should be done annually to be sure the dryer is operating safely and efficiently. A clogged dryer vent system is a fire hazard and it will cause the dryer to run longer and use more energy.
Be sure the area around the furnace, dryer, water heater and other gas appliances is not cluttered with combustible items, like cardboard boxes or flammable chemicals, like paint thinners or solvents.
Look around the house for anything that could be a fire hazard and take steps to make it safe. Encourage the rest of the family to get involved so that no hazard is overlooked.
Plan and rehearse an escape plan in case of fire. Be sure children understand the plan and agree on a place to meet outside when everyone gets out.
Dryer vent cleaning is the best defense against dryer fires and it is necessary maintenance for improved dryer performance and energy savings. Most appliances require maintenance for longevity, but, some maintenance tasks are also critical to home safety.
