Charlotte, NC (PressExposure) September 24, 2009 -- There is a hidden fire hazard in over 80 percent of American Homes; a clothes dryer! The real danger is in the dryer vent and dryer exhaust ducts. Over time, lint build up in the dryer exhaust ducts, restricts air flow, causing overheating that can result in a dryer fire. Manufacturers recommend annual dryer vent cleaning to prevent fires and to ensure clothes dryers are operating safely and efficiently.
Sue and Jim Evans own and operate Dryer Vent Wizard, Dry Clothes, Safe Homes, a national dryer vent cleaning and repair franchise with over 50 locations nationwide. In joining efforts with the NFPA, Dryer Vent Wizard is providing advice to consumers to minimize the risk of dryer fires. âDue to economic conditions, homeowners are learning to do some of their own maintenance rather than paying for professional services,â said Sue Evans. âSome dryer vents and exhaust ducts are very short and easily accessible while others are longer and more difficult to access. We have special tools and equipment for cleaning all dryer vents and dryer exhaust ducts.â
Dryer Vent Wizard technicians are required to do all they can to educate consumers on the importance of proper dryer vent maintenance. Franchisees are encouraged to write interesting, informative articles and post them to blogs for consumers to read. Visit Sue and Jim Evansâs blog at http://dryerventcleaningmonroenc.blogspot.com/
For those who prefer to do their own maintenance, Dryer Vent Wizard recommends that homeowners at least have a professional dryer vent specialist inspect their dryer vent system to be sure it is properly installed. âDryer vent cleaning is recommended annually,â said Evans. âIf you are the type who likes to do it yourself to save money then at least have your system inspected and professionally cleaned one time to be sure it is safe. The fee for preventative maintenance is little compared to the loss of your home or your life!â
