Austin Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Suggest Tips Keep Clothes Dryers Safe

The Wizard’s list of do’s and don’ts is sound advice for preventing dryer fires and keeping the dryer running smooth and efficient


Austin TX – The Austin Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is on a mission to spread the word about the importance of dryer vent maintenance to eliminate a fire hazard while improving dryer performance. Periodic dryer vent cleaning service is important for keeping dryers operating safely and efficiently.

According to the Wizard, failure to clean dryer vents is the cause of most dryer performance problems and dryer related fires. Lint accumulation restricts airflow, causing a dryer to over work, leading to increased drying time, higher energy bills, and eventually, a dryer fire. Lint is highly flammable, so all it takes is a spark from inside the dryer to start a rapidly spreading fire.

Bob Bryfogle, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard is dedicated to educating his customer while performing an important home service. He makes sure they understand how their dryer vent system works and how to keep it operating safely and efficiently.

The Wizard suggests the following list of do’s and don’ts to help residents maintain their dryer vent between annual visits. Here is the Wizard’s list:

• Clean the lint filter after every load
• Have the Wizard perform dryer vent cleaning service annually
• Don’t use plastic or flexible foil venting kits for clothes dryers
• Don’t dry clothing or rags soaked in flammable substances such as cooking oils, gasoline or dry-cleaning solvents which can emit vapors that could ignite or explode
• Read the manufacturer’s warnings in the use and care manual
