John Ryley owns Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.bayridgebrooklyn.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) serving residents and business owners in Brooklyn NY. Dryer fires start quickly and spread rapidly, said Ryley. Dryer fires cause nearly $200 million in property damage each year in addition to deaths and injuries. John Ryley recalled a couple dryer fires that occurred when residents left the home or went to sleep while the dryer was running:
One dryer fire could have been much worse if it werent for the working smoke detectors. The 14 year old was sleeping when the fire started; the detector went off and she woke up and called 911.
Another dryer fire caused major damage to a home while a mother and daughter went for a walk. They came home to a complete mess, with the washer, dryer, surrounding walls and clothes in the machines destroyed by fire.
I advise all my customers to never leave home or go to sleep while the dryer is running, said Ryley. Its OK to multi-task and get things done while youre waiting for clothes to dry. Vaccum, dust, do dishes or watch TV. Just dont go to sleep or leave the house!
Fire officials and dryer manufacturers recommend annual dryer vent cleaning to keep clothes dryers operating safely and efficiently. A poorly vented dryer will cost substantially more to operate. Service by the Soho District Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard will prevent fires, reduce energy bills and prolong the life of the clothes dryer.
