The Shelbyville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Provides Tips to Stay Warm and Safe this Winter
Over 17,000 dryer fires occur each year and 80 percent of residential fires are caused by heating devices
Glen Mayfield owns Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningindiana.com), specializing in dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation service while educating customers with valuable tips to keep their dryer functioning safely and efficiently. Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause.
When the Wizard visits a customer’s home, his main focus is the clothes dryer; however, during the holiday season, he also likes to add some holiday safety tips as well. How sad it would be if he made the dryer vent system safe but failed to notice another hazard that could result in disaster.
Here are some safety tips from the Wizard regarding fireplaces and space heaters:
• Do not burn wrapping paper in fireplaces
• Use a screen in front of the fire place
• Be careful with fireplace decorations and be sure to keep them well away from flames
• Make sure outlets are designed to handle the load with electric heaters and do not plug anything else into the socket with the heater
• Be sure to use only the correct fuel with kerosene heaters and do no overfill them. Always refuel outside after the unit has cooled off
Again, the Shelbyville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard’s main focus is the dryer vent system, so his number one safety tip all year around is to clean dryer vents regularly, and never go to sleep or leave the house with the dryer running. The same goes for Christmas lights…turn them off before leaving the house or going to sleep.
