(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 18, 2012 ) Sonoma CA The Sonoma dryer vent cleaning Wizard joins efforts with local firefighters and insurance companies by strongly urging residents to have annual dryer vent inspection and maintenance service. A qualified dryer exhaust technician can make clothes dryers safer and greener to eliminate a fire hazard and speed up drying cycles.
Rhonda Nole, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizarddryerventcleaning.com/) says that dryer fires are now more frequent than chimney fires. Over 17,000 dryer fires are reported annually, resulting in deaths, injuries, and nearly $200 million in property damages. In response to this growing trend, some manufacturers have added safety devices to shut the dryer down when sensors detect restricted airflow. Of course, like anything else, these safeguards are not 100%. They can wear out or fail.
Firefighters recommend annual dryer vent inspection and maintenance service 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 create excess 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.
Dryer Vent Wizard provides commercial and residential dryer vent inspections and comes highly qualified to clean, repair or install a new dryer vent system. Rhonda Nole serves the Greater North Bay area, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Napa and surrounding neighborhoods.
