Ceres, CA (PressExposure) September 09, 2009 -- James Smith is the franchise owner/operator of Dryer Vent Wizard of Modesto, CA. Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in dryer fire prevention and âurgent responseâ dryer vent cleaning, maintenance, repair and installation while educating consumers so dryers function properly, prevent fires and reduce energy costs.
James attended a workshop of small business owners recently and set up his vendor table with a display of dryer vent exhaust parts and pictures of various dryer vent systems. Several people gathered at his table to ask questions about his services. One person boldly asked, âWhy do we need to be concerned with professional dryer vent cleaning? I clean the lint screen after every load; isnât this good enough?â James answered, âOnly 60% of lint removed from tumbling laundry is caught in the lint screen; the rest escapes into the dryer vent system where it can build up and restrict air flow.â
Another person argued, âYeah, but thatâs what the dryer vent outside is for! The lint travels through the ductwork and ends up going out through the vent.â James patiently explained, âThis is what a lot of people think; however, the main function of your dryer vent system is to remove heat and moisture from the dryer drum; most of the lint actually sticks to the sides of the dryer duct and builds up over time, remaining there until it is removed by the homeowner or a professional dryer vent cleaning service. Unfortunately, most people neglect this important maintenance which is the cause of nearly 15,000 clothes dryer fires each year.â
Though some remained skeptical, others took James seriously. One woman asked, âDo you think I need to replace my clothes dryer? It is getting old and it takes longer to dry a load of laundry than it used to.â James answered, âThis is a common sign of poor air flow, usually cause by lint build-up or an inferior dryer vent system. Other signs include the room getting unusually hot and humid when the dryer is running, the dryer cabinet or clothing being hot to the touch or clothes come out with a moldy smell. If you are experiencing any of these problems then it is recommended that you have a professional inspection of your dryer vent system.â
James continued to answer questions as more people were convinced that they needed to hire his services. When the meeting ended, James was happy that his schedule for the following week was full; not only because of the increased business for him, but because he is truly concerned for the people in his community. James has written articles and posted them to a blog for consumers to learn more about dryer fire prevention and energy savings at http://dryerventcleaningriverbank.blogspot.com/
