Dryer Vent Cleaning Melville Wizard Makes an Interesting Comparison between Kids and Dryers

Never leave a running dryer unattended; do not leave home or go to sleep when the dryer is operating

Melville, NY – The Melville Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says to treat the clothes dryer like a child and never leave it unattended. John Ryley, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard warns residents to never go to sleep or leave the house when the dryer is running. Dryer lint is highly flammable and a small spark from inside the dryer can ignite the lint to cause a rapidly spreading fire, capable of completely destroying a home within minutes.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard has a passion for preventing dryer fires while educating his customers about dryer maintenance. Over 17,000 dryer fires occur each year, resulting in deaths, injuries and nearly $200 million in property damages. Most dryer fires are the result of lint accumulation in the dryer duct.

Dryer fires can start suddenly and spread rapidly so dryer safety should not be taken for granted. Improper dryer vent installation can also cause problems so the Wizard urges everyone to have their dryer vent inspected and cleaned regularly.

Ryley recalls two dryer fires that could have been prevented with proper maintenance. One dryer fire could have been much worse if it weren’t for the working smoke detectors. The 14 year old was sleeping when the fire started; the detector went off and she woke up and called 911.

Another dryer fire caused major damage to a home while a mother and daughter went for a walk. They came home to a complete mess, with the washer, dryer, surrounding walls and clothes in the machines destroyed by fire. Service by Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKyCuFbNpYk) will eliminate this hazard and improve dryer performance.

“I advise all my customers to never leave home or go to sleep while the dryer is running,” said Ryley. “It’s OK to multi-task and get things done while you’re waiting for clothes to dry. Vacuum, dust, do dishes or watch TV. Just don’t go to sleep or leave the house!”

Fire officials and dryer manufacturers recommend regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning to keep clothes dryers operating safely and efficiently. A poorly vented dryer will cost substantially more to operate. Dryer vent cleaning will prevent fires, reduce energy bills and prolong the life of the clothes dryer.
