Huntsville, Ohio (PressExposure) June 01, 2008 -- Mold is a large group of microscopic fungi that live on plant or animal matter, producing spores that can be air born. They are seen everywhere, even inside our homes, growing on wet and damp spots usually found in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry areas. Molds are a natural part of our environment and play a positive role outside, however, indoors, they have a potential to cause serious health problems.
Most people are aware of the common areas where mold and mildew are present; therefore, they keep these areas clean. However, many are not aware that mold can also grow in dryer vents, causing clothing to come out of the dryer with a musty smell. This is sign of a clog in the dryer vent which causes the dryer to run inefficiently by making clothing take more than one normal cycle to dry, and eventually, leading to a fire. This is an easy fix for Dryer Vent Wizard who specializes in dryer vent cleaning and maintenance. In cooperation with the National Fire Prevention Association, Dryer Vent Wizard also sets out to educate consumers on fire prevention and conserving energy with proper dryer and dryer vent maintenance.
Dryer Vent Wizard, Dry Clothes, Safe Homes joins the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in fire prevention awareness efforts by sponsoring Dryer Vent Safety Awareness Month in February. DVW has developed a downloadable video, brochures and a free dryer vent safety check kit, that can be used by community groups to create awareness of dryer vent safety.
