Indianapolis Expert says Dryer Vent Cleaning Prevents Fires and Reduces Energy Bills

Avon, IN (PressExposure) September 23, 2009 -- Glen Mayfield owns Dryer Vent Wizard of Central Indiana. Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in all dryer vent exhaust issues while working to generate public awareness on the danger of clogged dryer vents. “Clogged dryer vents are a major fire hazard,” said Mayfield. “Lint build-up in dryer vents is the leading cause of over 15,000 dryer fires that are reported annually.”

Glen Mayfield recommends that all dryer vent systems be inspected to be sure they meet current safety codes. “The flexible foil or vinyl dryer duct material is no longer acceptable for dryer ducts,” said Glen. “The flexible foil venting often becomes crushed, allowing lint build-up and obstructing airflow. Flexible foil venting also has ridges which cause friction inside the dryer vent tube and slows airflow.”

There are many common mistakes made by homeowners who install their own dryer vent systems. Glen said, “Some people install a screen at the end of the dryer vent outside to keep bugs and critters out. This also prevents lint from escaping as it builds up on the screen and blocks airflow. A screen will quickly become covered with dust and lint, obstructing air flow and causing overheating in the system.”

In joining efforts with the NFPA, Dryer Vent Wizard is providing advice to consumers to minimize the risk of dryer fires. Glen takes great pride in dealing personally with all his customers to educate them on dryer vent cleaning and maintenance to prevent dryer fires and reduce energy bills. Visit to learn more.
