Cambridge, MA (PressExposure) February 02, 2009 -- Dryer fires cause over 15,000 dryer fires annually. Webb Dickson, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard of New Hampshire was recently interviewed. âFailure to clean dryer vents is a major contributor to clothes dryer fires,â said Dickson. âLint clogged dryer vent systems not only cause fires; they make the dryer to work harder, use more energy, and cost more to operate.â
Dryer Vent Wizard provides advice to consumers to minimize the risk of dryer fires. They advise consumers to be sure the dryer vent systems are up to code with the city, state and manufacturer by replacing any plastic or foil vent systems with semi-rigid or solid metal venting. âI make sure my customers understand how their dryer vent system works and that they are aware of warning signs of trouble,â said Dickson. âMy job is not complete my customer knows how to maintain the vent system between annual visits.â
The warning signs Webb mentioned are clothes taking more than one cycle to dry, especially jeans and towels, no visible lint on the lint screen, dryer repeatedly stops during a cycle, clothing having a moldy smell after a dry cycle, and clothing being very hot after a dry cycle. Webb explained that all of these are warnings of a fire hazard.
