Ceres, CA (PressExposure) June 27, 2011 -- Dryer vent cleaning is one of the most important; yet, the most often neglected appliance maintenance chores. "Lint accumulation in dryer ducts is a major cause of dryer related fires," said James Smith, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard. "Clothes dryers are more likely to cause a fire than any other appliance in your home."
James Smith is the Dryer Vent Cleaning Riverbank Wizard. He enjoys making a difference in his neighborhood as he explains how lint accumulates inside the dryer and the dryer vent system. "The lint screen only traps about 60 percent of lint removed from laundry," said Smith. "The rest escapes into the dryer cabinet and the dryer vents where it blocks air flow and causes overheating."
One recent customer, a local firefighter, gave the Dryer Vent Cleaning Riverbank Wizard a five-star review for dryer vent services performed at his home:
"James Smith and his company, Dryer Vent Wizard, provided professional service and gave me good information. He didn't charge me for things that didn't need to be done. He is honest and professional.
"He gave me some vital information about fire safety in my home with regards to my dryer vent. I know he was being honest about it because I am a retired fireman and have experience in what he was saying.
"It is always nice for today's consumer to receive professional information and service. James Smith was very honest, and I was extremely pleased doing business with him. I highly recommend him and his company to anyone I come across." Ron W. Riverbank CA.
When asked what a homeowner can do to prevent dryer fires, James explained, "Replace dryer vent systems made of vinyl or flexible foil with solid metal vents. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs dryer ducts made of rigid metal to lint build-up and increase air flow. Poorly vented dryers will use more energy and cost substantially more money to operate."
James Smith addressed other dryer related hazards including increased humidity in homes and allowing mold and mildew growth and carbon monoxide poisoning. "Like any fuel burning appliance gas dryers can allow dangerous levels of carbon monoxide into your home," said James. "Annual dryer vent cleaning is recommended to keep clothes dryers operating safely and efficiently."
