Bel Air, MD (PressExposure) September 23, 2009 -- There are over 15,000 clothes dryer fires reported each year, resulting in injuries, loss of lives and damage to homes. According to Eric Gustafsson, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, most of these fires were caused by failure to clean dryer vents. âMany companies advertise dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation services. The internet is flooded with articles warning consumers about the danger of clogged dryer vents,â said Eric.
Dryer Vent Wizard is a national franchise company specializing in dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation services. They were founded in 2004 and have grown to over 50 franchises in major markets in the US. In joining efforts with the NFPA, Dryer Vent Wizard is providing advice to consumers to minimize the risk of dryer fires. Franchisees are encouraged to write articles and post them to blogs to educate consumers about proper dryer vent installation and maintenance so clothes dryers operate safely and efficiently.
Annual dryer vent cleaning and proper dryer vent installation, meeting city, state and manufacturer codes is important for preventing dryer exhaust problems that can lead to a dryer fire. Plastic or foil, accordion type ducting material should be replaced with rigid or corrugated semi-rigid metal duct, as specified by most manufacturers, to provide maximum airflow.

Poorly maintained dryer vents cause fire hazards and cost substantially more to operate. Visit http://www.dryerventwizard.com for more information.
