Some insurance companies are beginning to make dryer vent cleaning and annual inspections mandatory
Wilmington DE – The local Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is joining forces with insurance companies and fire fighters who urge people to have regular dryer vent inspections. Professional dryer vent installation and cleaning service can make clothes dryers safer and greener while improving dryer performance and speeding up drying time.
According to Gerry Rhen, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, dryer fires happen more frequently than chimney fires. More than 17,000 dryer fires occur each year, causing deaths, injuries, and nearly $200 million in property damages. In response to this growing trend, dryer manufacturers install safety devices to shut the appliance down when sensors detect restricted airflow which causes overheating. Of course, like anything else, these safeguards are not 100%. They can wear out or fail.
Fire departments and the Wizard (http://dryerventcleaningwilmingtonde.blogspot.com) recommend annual dryer vent cleaning and inspections of dryer exhaust systems to ensure safety. Insurance companies are starting to require dryer vent cleaning and maintenance to reduce the risk of dryer related fires.
Poorly vented dryers, due to improper dryer vent installation and maintenance can increase the humidity in homes, leading to mold and mildew damage and illness to sensitive residents. Gas dryers that are not vented properly can cause carbon monoxide to leak into the home as well.
Gerry Rhen was inspired to go into the dryer vent cleaning and installation business when he realized how many people are still using the plastic, vinyl and flexible-foil dryer ducts which are not in compliance with dryer vent safety standards. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs solid metal dryer ducts which are vented outdoors and completely up to code.
Every dryer needs a wizard. The cost of professional dryer vent service is little compared to the benefits.
