Warren, MI (PressExposure) September 23, 2009 -- The Underwriters Laboratories (UL) recommends annual, professional dryer vent cleaning to prevent clothes dryer fires. The UL is an independent testing laboratory that establishes standards for residential, commercial and industrial electrical products and their safety. Horatio Chiorean is the owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, a dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation company who also works to promote public awareness of dryer fire prevention.
âAbout 80% of all homes have clothes dryers; this means that there are about 82 million potential fire hazards out there if the dryer vents are not properly maintained,â said Horatio. âA dryer fire occurs when lint build up in the dryer vent system, blocks air flow causing the system to become overheated.â
Horatio explained that a clothes dryer requires proper air flow to work efficiently. âThe harder your dryer labors to perform its job, the more you are spending on energy bills. Failure to clean dryer vents will make your dryer cost an additional $18 to $24 per month to operate,â said Horatio.
In joining efforts with the NFPA, Dryer Vent Wizard is providing advice to consumers to minimize the risk of dryer fires. Horatio Chiorean and other DVW franchisees have been writing articles and creating blogs to help promote consumer awareness on the importance of dryer vent cleaning and maintenance.
