Warren, MI (PressExposure) March 21, 2009 -- Over 15,000 clothes dryer fires are reported annually; fires are most devastating when they occur in apartment buildings. Emilie Benvegna recently spoke at a real estate investorâs association meeting where she displayed a model of a dryer vent system as she explained its function. She showed everyone how easily a fire could start in the dryer vent and how quickly it could spread throughout the apartment complex. Emilie explained, âLint is highly combustible. When a dryer vent is clogged with lint, air-flow is restricted, causing overheating and eventually, a fire. This is especially devastating in an apartment building where many lives are at risk.â
Emilie Benvegna, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard in Charlotte, North Carolina, explained the importance of proper maintenance to prevent dryer fires. âProfessional dryer vent cleaning is recommended at least once a year. When tenants donât properly maintain their dryer vent systems, the landlord or property manager is liable for whatever happens. In large buildings, many lives are at risk, because of one negligent tenant,â Emilie explained.
Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in dryer vent cleaning, repair, installation and alterations. They also provide an invaluable service to their community, educating each customer in dryer vent maintenance and dryer fire prevention. Emilie covers everything her customers need to know about proper cleaning and maintenance of their dryer vent system. âMy job isnât complete until my customer understands how their dryer vent system works and how to maintain it between annual cleanings,â Emilie said.
Emilie urges landlords and apartment building managers to have all dryer vents in the building professionally cleaned and inspected at least once a year or whenever a tenant moves out. âThe cost of the inspection and necessary repairs is really small compared to potential damages, injuries and loss of lives if a dryer vent fire should occur,â said Emilie.
