Dryer Vent Cleaning Arlington Wizard Suggests Safety Tips During Fire Prevention Month

Dryer fire prevention is the Wizard’s main focus all year long but he really steps up his efforts during Fire Prevention Month

Arlington VA – The Arlington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is on a mission to promote an important message during National Fire Prevention Month in October. Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation while educating families about dryer fire prevention.

As a member of the National Fire Protection Association and one of 60 Wizards in the US, Doug Bittner is happy to support Fire Prevention Month. The fall season is the time of year when the frequency of home fires increases and the Wizard provides an important service to minimize the risk of dryer fires.

Education is a vital part of the Wizard’s Service and Doug Bittner is dedicated to promoting consumer awareness about the danger associated with poorly vented clothes dryers. He is encouraging homeowners to look for potential fire hazards and make necessary corrections in their home during Fire Prevention Month. Here are some additional fire prevention tips suggested by the Wizard (http://arlington.dryerventcleaningnow.com/):

• Electrical cords – check for damage
• Extension cords – used safely; not under carpets or across doorways
• Smoke detectors working
• Fire extinguishers where needed
• Escape routes – clutter free and easily accessible
• No curtains or other combustible items near the stove top
• Space heaters – do not leave unattended and place at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn
• Adult supervision when children help with cooking
• Annual professional cleaning and inspection of furnace and chimney
• Regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and maintenance service

A complete dryer vent inspection and service by the Wizard will eliminate a fire hazard, improve dryer performance, increase dryer efficiency and prevent a number of other home hazards including mold and mildew damage and carbon monoxide poisoning with gas dryers. According to the Wizard, all fuel burning appliances, including gas dryers must be properly vented to the outdoors to be safe.

Dryer Vent Wizard technicians can diagnose problems and make necessary corrections to maximize air flow required for a dryer to operate safely and efficiently. The Wizard carries all the tools and materials needed to complete the entire job in one day, from dryer vent cleaning and repair to professional dryer vent installation according to current safety standards.
