The Wizard of Wethersfield Offers Dryer Vent Cleaning Tips and Important Information about New Dryer Features

Safety features like indicator lights and other dryer add-on gadgets are a step in the right direction; but proper dryer vent installation and regular dryer vent cleaning service are the only way to ensure maximum safety and efficiency

Wethersfield, CT – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wethersfield Wizard is dedicated to preventing dryer fires by educating his customers. He offers dryer vent cleaning tips and information about clothes dryers so his customers understand the importance of proper maintenance to eliminate hazards.

When asked about idiot lights and other dryer add-ons designed to alert users of an air flow problem, John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard explains how safety features like lint alert and other dryer add-ons are a step in the right direction, but the only way to be safe is by having a dryer vent inspection and service performed by a qualified professional.

Over 17,000 dryer fires happen each year and most are caused by lint accumulation in the dryer vent system. Proper dryer vent installation followed by regular dryer vent cleaning will improve dryer performance, extend dryer life, increase dryer efficiency and eliminate a fire hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission investigated two types of indicator lights for clothes dryers. One would be triggered after a certain number of loads of laundry; the other would be an “abnormal operations” light linked to the thermostat.

According to the CPSC, using indicator lights may alert the owner that dryer vent cleaning service is necessary; however, the results have been inconsistent.

Service by the Wethersfield Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is the best way to ensure maximum dryer safety, performance and efficiency. Though these indicator lights, or add-ons like the LintAlert, can be useful, proper maintenance is the very best solution.

John Moffat is concerned that people will rely on these indicator lights and take them for granted. Many people ignore the check engine light in older cars; they may do the same with the indicator light on a dryer.

Moffat encourages consumers to have a complete dryer vent inspection to be sure their dryer is operating as safely and efficiently as possible. Professional dryer vent installation and regular dryer vent cleaning are the best way to ensure dryer safety.
