(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 17, 2012 ) Lexington KY The Lexington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard was recently interviewed by the Appliance Doctor, on WAAM Talk 1600. Over the last 25 years, the Appliance doctor has helped thousands of listeners with appliance repair and maintenance tips. His recent visit with the Wizard provided dryer fire safety and true stories from the field.
To raise public awareness and prevent future dryer fires, OLoane explained that PVC, plastic and foil vents are not code compliant materials to use for dryer vents and can cause mold and mildew problems.
When asked to describe the most dangerous situation he has encountered, OLoane described several occasions where dryer vent lines were improperly installed. During one inspection, he actually discovered the beginning of a dryer fire. Luckily he was there to get the lint out and install a new dryer vent.
Keith OLoane strongly urges homeowners to have a dryer vent inspection by a qualified dryer vent service technician to be sure it is properly installed. He also recommends regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service to maintain airflow for efficient performance.
