Dryer Vent Cleaning Longmont Wizard Provides Service to Commemorate Fire Prevention Month
There are many ways to recognize National Fire Prevention Month including eliminating fire hazards in the home
There are many things consumers can do to support National Fire Prevention Month, including purchasing tickets to fundraisers…even if they will not be attending. The money will be put to good use, improving fire departments, training for volunteer fire departments, better equipment and much more.
Parents can get involved by asking their children about the presentation by the fire department. They can have the children help spot and eliminate fire hazards in the home and help with the escape plan in case of fire. Calling the Wizard for dryer vent cleaning service is a great plan as well. A vital part of service by Dryer Vent Wizard (www.dryerventcleaninglongmont.com/) is education about dryer fire prevention and energy savings.
Here are some home inspection and fire prevention tips from the Longmont Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard:
• Electrical cords – check for damage
• Extension cords – used safely; not under carpets or across doorways
• Smoke detectors working
• Fire extinguishers where needed
• Escape routes – clutter free and easily accessible
• No curtains or other combustible items near the stove top
• Space heaters – off when you go to sleep or leave the room; at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn
• Adult supervision when children help with cooking
• Annual professional cleaning and inspection of furnace and chimney
• Annual professional cleaning and inspection of dryer vent exhaust system
Thousands of people die each year in home fires that can easily be prevented. Unfortunately, dryer vent cleaning is the most often neglected maintenance and the result is over 17,000 dryer fires occurring each year.
Dryer vent lint builds up very quickly, restricts air-flow and prevents the dryer from operating efficiently. This can lead to premature mechanical break down, cost up to an additional $300 in energy bills, and a rapidly spreading dryer related fire.
To commemorate National Fire Prevention Month in October, contact a dryer vent service technician for a complete inspection to be sure it is safe. Poorly vented gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide risk. All dryers need service by the Wizard. Visit www.codryervent.com/ to learn more.
