Failure to Clean Dryer Vents Causes Fire in Cincinnati, OH

Warren, MI (PressExposure) December 23, 2009 -- Dryer vent cleaning was way over due. The residents in the University of Cincinnati’s Calhoun Hall were evacuated when a fire started in the laundry room of the basement. The fire was caused by an overheated, clogged dryer vent. The vent was so backed up with lint that the items in the dryer also caught fire. The fire captain said, “It takes a long time to accumulate all that lint; and then something has to go wrong in the dryer.” It was estimated that the lint had been building up for years.

Ed Rauch owns Dryer Vent Wizard, a dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation company who also makes it a point to educate customers while providing service. “Consumers need to know how important proper dryer vent installation and maintenance is to prevent dryer fires and reduce energy bills. Air flow is the most important element in a clothes dryer’s ability to function safely and efficiently.”

Ed Rauch was especially concerned with the recent fire which occurred in a building with many residents. “Any residential fire is serious; however, when they occur in multi-family homes, apartments or attached condos, many more lives are at risk. It only takes one negligent resident to displace, injure or even kill, many.”

In joining efforts with the NFPA, Dryer Vent Wizard is providing advice to consumers to minimize the risk of dryer fires. Franchisees across the nation are working to promote public awareness. Read Ed Rauch’s most recent blog at
