Dryer Vent Cleaning North East Wizard Explains how Good Dryer Maintenance Minimizes the Risk of Dryer Fires
He combines service with education and covers the warning signs that indicate a need for dryer vent repair or cleaning service
Thousands of dryer fires happen each year resulting in deaths, injuries and loss of homes. Poor dryer maintenance is cited as the leading cause of dryer fires. Increased drying time is the most common sign indicating the need for dryer vent cleaning, but there are other signs people should be looking for. Some people have burned themselves on a hot zipper or metal studs on jeans when removing laundry from the dryer. A properly maintained dryer should not produce heat to this extreme. Other warning signs of a pending dryer fire include the laundry room becoming hot and humid during a dry cycle or the top of the dryer getting hot.
Gerry Rhen, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningnortheastmd.blogspot.com/) combines service with education to increase public awareness of the need for proper dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service. He makes sure his customer understands the warning signs indicating an overheated dryer which will cause a fire if left unchecked. Gerry’s customers appreciate his concern and often post positive reviews:
“If anybody in the area has issues with their dryer, I highly recommend you call Dryer Vent Wizard. They did a great job fixing my problem. Come to find out this problem could of set my house on fire. So many times we don’t think about something like this but dryer lint & heat is one of the most common components that start house fires.” Happy customer.
In addition to explaining the need for good dryer maintenance, the Wizard also warns his customers about putting rags soaked with flammable substances like gasoline or cleaning solvents into the dryer, even if they have been washed. Residue can remain from these flammable liquids and generate vapors that could cause a fire. These items should be line dried.
Improper dryer vent installation or use of plastic of vinyl dryer duct material can also lead to a fire hazard. The Wizard suggests everyone, even the DIY homeowner, have a dryer vent inspection to be sure their system meets current safety standards. The updates in dryer vent safety standards have reduced the number of dryer fires by about 35 percent since the late 1970’s, but many people still use the outdated dryer vent systems.
