Garden City Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Promotes National Fire Prevention Month in October
The Wizard urges consumers to make sure their dryer vent system is safe and all fuel burning appliances are vented properly
According to Mike Alder, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://dryerventcleaninggardencity.blogspot.com/), fire is not the only danger. Carbon monoxide poisoning is another threat associated with the fall season. All gas appliances, including clothes dryers, must be properly vented and maintained ensure safely. Here are some of the home safety tips suggested by the Dryer Vent Cleaning Garden City Wizard:
• Install a carbon monoxide detector near the area where the gas appliances are, check batteries often and make sure it is working properly.
• Install smoke detectors throughout the house and be sure the batteries are good.
• Furnace cleaning should be done periodically. Check with the manufacturer for recommended frequency.
• 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. Have everyone in the house do this to be sure no hazard is missed.
• Plan and rehearse an escape plan in the event of a fire. Be sure children understand the plan and agree on a place to meet outside when everyone is out.
