Farmington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Increases Efforts for Fire Prevention Month


Educating the customer is part of the Wizard’s service all year long; extra effort is put forth during National Fire Prevention Month in October











 Farmington, CT – Dryer vent cleaning is the best way to prevent dryer fires and other dryer related hazards. Dryer vent cleaning improves dryer performance and increases dryer efficiency. Unfortunately, few people are aware of how important dryer vent cleaning is to fire prevention and dryer performance.

During National Fire Prevention Month in October, John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, encourages residents to support National Fire Prevention Month by looking around their home for fire hazards and making necessary corrections. Clothes dryers are more likely to cause a fire than a furnace or stove. Unfortunately, clothes dryers are also the most neglected appliance when it comes to annual maintenance. Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com) reminds residents that dryer vent cleaning is their number one defense against dryer fires.

In addition to preventing dryer fires, dryer vent cleaning also improves dryer performance. One of the most common complaints the addresses is increased drying time. Many people think they need appliance service or new dryer when it takes an additional cycle to dry clothes. Few are aware that increased drying time indicates poor airflow and a potential fire hazard. Rarely does it mean that the dryer is worn out or in need of repair. Dryer vent cleaning is the solution.

Another common misconception among consumers is thinking that if they clean the lint screen after every load, then professional dryer vent cleaning is not necessary. Keeping the lint filter clean is great maintenance; however, it is not enough to ensure safety and efficiency. Eventually, dryer lint will build up in the dryer vent system and need to be addressed.

John explains to all his customers that the lint screen only traps about 60% of lint removed from laundry. Much of the lint that escapes the lint filter will end up in the dryer ducts and the dryer cabinet. Every dryer vent system needs dryer vent cleaning performed periodically. There is no maintenance-free dryer vent system.

Education is an important part of the Wizard’s service and extra effort is applied during National Fire Prevention Month in October. Visit http://www.dryerventcleaninghartford.com/ to learn more.
