Chicago, IL (PressExposure) June 24, 2011 -- The dryer vent cleaning Chicago Wizard cannot say enough about dryer vent maintenance and fire prevention. Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard is often heard "venting" about the importance of professional dryer vent installation and regular dryer vent cleaning to eliminate a fire hazard and promote dryer efficiency.
The clothes dryer is a rather simple machine that requires heat and air flow to do its job. Without proper air flow, the dryer continues to produce heat which cannot escape, so clothes take longer to dry while the system overheats. This leads to substantially higher energy bills and a serious fire hazard.
The Wizard is concerned with the frequency of dryer fires and saddened every time he hears about a family losing their home or even their lives in an easily preventable, but devastating home hazard.
A recent dryer fire in Lemont could have been a very sad story for a couple with 4 small children who were home when the fire started:
Lemont, IL: A 1st grader was honored for her prompt response to a dryer fire in her home. She was presented with a "Young Hero" award at the Lemont Fire District Station One. Two days earlier, the child had attended a fire prevention talk with the Daisy Girl Scout troop where she learned how to react to a fire in her home. The message was simple, "get out and stay out." She combined this educational experience with instructions from her parents as to where to meet if there was ever a fire. The child followed all directions and waited on the neighbor's porch while her parents got her three younger siblings out of the house.
Knowing what to do in the event of a fire is important; however, preventing the fire is even more important. The Wizard was charmed by the young child's behavior and the fact that children seem to listen quite well when the material is presented in an interesting way. This story could have had a sad ending if the child would have panicked, making it more difficult for the couple to get the three younger ones out safely.
Mory and fellow Wizards across the nation work to encourage public awareness on the importance of professional dryer vent services. Mory enjoys building positive relationships with his customers as he points out problems with their dryer vent system and explains the solution.
