Dryer Vent Cleaning Herndon Wizard Suggests Cleaning Dryer Vents in Recognition of Fire Prevention Month in October
Wizards across the nation join efforts with local firefighters to educate the public about fire prevention
Doug Bittner owns Dryer Vent Wizard and he works all year to promote public awareness of the importance of dryer vent service to prevent dryer fires and improve dryer efficiency. He steps up his efforts during Fire Prevention Month to make clothes dryers in his community safer and greener.
Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, a tragedy that occurred in 1871. The devastation caused more than 250 deaths and left over 100,000 people homeless as more than 17,000 buildings were destroyed. The 2,000 acre fire began on October 8 and did most of its damage on the 9th.
Survivors of the fire never forgot what they had been through. The fire changed the way that firefighters and pubic officials thought about fire safety. On the 40th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire, the Fire Marshals Association of North America decided that the date of the fire would be observed by promoting public awareness on fire prevention.
There are many things people can do around the home to reduce the risk of house fires, starting with dryer vent service by the Wizard. The clothes dryer is one of the most likely appliances to start a dryer fire; yet it is also the most neglected maintenance among homeowners.
Dryer vent cleaning is recommended every year to remove lint build-up in dryer vent tubes and inside the dryer where it builds up around the motor. Lint is highly flammable and a small spark from within the clothes dryer completes the recipe for disaster; a rapidly spreading fire. Dryer vent service by the Wizard will eliminate the hazard and improve dryer performance. Visit http://herndondryerventcleaning.blogspot.com/ to schedule a dryer vent inspection and service.
Over 17,000 clothes dryer fires are reported each year with most of them resulting from failure to clean dryer vents. The National Fire Prevention Administration encourages everyone who owns a clothes dryer to have professional dryer vent service performed regularly.
