The clothes dryer is the most likely appliance to cause a fire with failure to clean dryer vents being a leading cause of dryer fires
Orlando FL – When the Dryer Vent Cleaning Orlando Wizard thinks about National Fire Prevention Month, he might picture the fire department visiting grade school children to teach fire safety. Dryer vent cleaning companies and other home service providers like to join in to generate public awareness on dryer fire prevention.
People can show their spirit for National Fire Prevention Month by spotting and correcting fire hazards in the home. Robert Moore, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.OrlandoFL.DryerVentCleaningNow.com), enjoys providing an important home service while educating his customers. Besides dryer vent cleaning service, here are some fire prevention tips from the Wizard:
• Check all power cords for damage and use them safely, being careful not to overload circuits
• Check batteries in smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and make sure fire extinguishers are placed where needed and in good working order
• Plan an escape route with the family as well as a place to meet outside in the event of a fire
• Turn off space heaters and blow out candles before leaving the room or going to sleep
• Maintain all heat producing appliances, including the stove and clothes dryer
Thousands of people die each year in home fires that can easily be prevented. Unfortunately, dryer vent cleaning is the most often neglected maintenance and the result is over 17,000 dryer fires each year. Regularly scheduled dryer vent inspection and service by the Wizard is the number one fire prevention tip for homeowners.
Dryer lint accumulation restricts airflow and prevents the dryer from operating efficiently. This can lead to premature mechanical break down, cost up to an additional $300 in energy bills, and a rapidly spreading dryer related fire.
While celebrating National Fire Prevention Week in October, contact a dryer vent service technician for a complete inspection and service to be sure it is fire safe and energy efficient.
