Scottsdale, Arizona (PressExposure) August 20, 2008 -- Clothes dryers are reported as being a major cause of house fires, costing millions of dollars in damages, deaths and injuries, each year. In the United States, it is a law that all gas dryers must be vented to the outdoors. Dryer Vent Wizard advises consumers to have their dryer vent systems professionally inspected to be sure they meet the codes of cities, states and manufacturers.
Greg Longe and his partner, John Lynch franchise Dryer Vent Wizard, dry Clothes, Safe Homes, a nationwide chain of dryer vent cleaning, repair, replacement and alteration specialists in the U.S. They are working to increase consumer awareness of proper ventilation for clothes dryers.
Dryer Vent Wizard advises dryer vents should be as short and straight as possible with few elbows. The more bends and turns, the greater the reduction in air flow there is, causing lint to accumulate and cause clogs, which can lead to fires. Dryer vent problems also cause problems with the efficiency of dryers. âMany people think it is normal for a dryer to take two to three cycles to get clothing completely dry,â says Greg Longe. Greg advises consumers to check for dryer venting problems by removing the vent line from the dryer and doing a load or two. If drying time improves, chances are the vent is at least part of the problem.
Dryer Vent Wizard professionally inspects and cleans clothing dryers for homeowners and in commercially-owned buildings. Poorly maintained dryer vents cause fire hazards and cost substantially more to operate. Free dryer vent safety check kits are available at [http://www.dryerventwizard.com/ventcheck_request.htm]
