Warren, MI (PressExposure) September 23, 2009 -- Appliance maintenance is important for safety and efficiency. When neglected, you run the risk of premature break down, increased energy usage, and in some cases, a house fire. Unfortunately, few people think of their clothes dryer as a potential threat.
Webb Dickson is a dryer vent specialist who owns Dryer Vent Wizard, serving customers in New Hampshire and parts of Massachusetts. During an interview, Webb described a scenario from one of his recent service calls. âIt was by lucky coincidence that I got the call,â said Dickson. âThey had just purchased a new dryer, hooked it up and did a couple loads. Like the dryer they were replacing, the new one took an extra cycle to completely dry the clothes and the laundry room became very hot and humid. As the woman opened a window, to vent the hot air, she noticed my work van at a home across the street and called the number printed on the side.â
Webb was dispatched to the coupleâs home after completing the job for the neighbor. âThe first thing I noticed was the old vinyl dryer vent tube leading to the vent outside. It was completely clogged with lint. I explained to them how the blocked air flow created the slow drying problem and a potential fire hazard. I also installed a new dryer vent system with rigid metal dryer ducts because the vinyl tubing does not meet current building safety standards.â
The properly installed dryer vent system cured the problem and eliminated a potential fire hazard. âConsumer education is a vital part of our service,â said Dickson. âOur job is not complete until the customer understands the importance of professional dryer vent cleaning and proper dryer vent installation to keep their clothes dryer operating safely and efficiently.â Read Webb Dicksonâs blog for more tips and information on dryer vent maintenance at http://dryerventcleaningframingham.blogspot.com/
