Buda Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Addresses Safety Hazards with Poorly Vented Dryers

The Wizard works to raise public awareness of the importance of proper dryer vent installation and dryer maintenance

 Buda TX – According to the Buda Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, over 17,000 dryer fires are reported each year with owner neglect being the leading cause. Though plenty of media attention is focused on this issue, many continue to neglect this important home maintenance task.

Dryer Vent Wizard is a national dryer vent cleaning franchise that was created to assist homeowners in maintaining their dryer to reduce the risk of dryer fires. Wizards across the nation work to raise consumer awareness of the need for this important home service.

Bob Bryfogle, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizardofcentraltexas.com/), addresses several dryer related hazards, including home health threats caused by poor dryer ventilation. To date almost every home has a dryer. Whether gas or electric, airflow is the most important requirement for a dryer to work safely and efficiently. Gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat when not properly vented.

A clogged dryer vent is an unknown source for mold and other indoor air contaminants that can lead to health issues for residents. The biggest concern with lint accumulation in the dryer vent system is fire. Here are some of the benefits of regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service by the Wizard:

Dryer vent cleaning eliminates a fire hazard. Only about 60 percent of the lint produced by tumbling laundry is caught in the lint screen. The rest becomes trapped inside the dryer or in the dryer vent tube. This condition will restrict airflow, cause overheating and lead to a dryer fire.

Dryer vent cleaning improves dryer efficiency to reduce energy cost. Increased drying time is rarely a sign of wear or malfunction. It is almost always directly related to poor venting due to lint accumulation.

Dryer vent cleaning increases the life of the dryer. The clothes dryer is a simple but sturdy appliance. Proper maintenance will keep it performing well and hazard free.

Professional dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning is the best way to improve dryer performance, save energy and prevent dryer fires and other dryer problems.
