The Arlington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard’s List of Do’s and Don’ts Helps Keep Area Families Safe from Dryer Fires

Simple tips from the Wizard help avoid dryer fires, increased energy bills and mechanical problems caused by poorly vented clothes dryers

Arlington VA – The Arlington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is committed to spreading the word about the urgency of dryer maintenance to prevent dryer fires and avoid a number of other dryer related problems. Periodic dryer vent cleaning service is important for keeping dryers operating safely and efficiently.

According to the local dryer vent service expert failure to clean dryer vents is the cause of most dryer performance problems and dryer related fires. Lint build-up blocks 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.
