Warren, MI (PressExposure) October 16, 2009 -- Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees are working extra hard during the month of October to spread the word on dryer fire prevention. âOctober is National Fire Prevention Month; it is also a time of the year when most fires or carbon monoxide poisonings occur. Poorly vented clothes dryers are the cause of nearly 15,000 dryer fires annually,â said D. Benson from the home office in Warren.
Clogged dryer exhaust vents block air-flow, cause overheating, and can eventually, lead to afire. In addition to being a fire hazard, clogged dryer exhaust vents cause a dryer to over work and strain to do its job. Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees are working overtime to write articles and create blogs in observance of National Fire Prevention Week.

Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees are reminding consumers that in addition to being an energy hog and fire hazard, a clogged dryer exhaust vent can also be a carbon monoxide threat if you have a gas dryer. âPoorly installed dryer vents or dryer vents that do not meet current safety standards can also be very dangerous,â said Benson. âIf you are not sure your dryer vent system is safe, then a complete dryer exhaust inspection is a good idea. The fee for dryer vent repair and service is little compared to the energy savings and reduced risk of fire.â
