The Anatomy of a Dryer Fire Explained by the Larkspur Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 24, 2012 ) Larkspur CA The Larkspur dryer vent cleaning Wizard is spreading the word to increase public awareness that clogged dryer vents are the number one cause of over 17,000 dryer fires that occur in the U.S. each year. Improper dryer vent installation or use of inferior dryer vent materials can also be a fire hazard.
Rhonda Nole, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard in the Greater North Bay area recommends everyone have an inspection to be sure their dryer vent system meets current safety standards. Rhonda finds a problem with 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems inspected. Though failure to clean dryer vents is the number one cause of dryer fires, poorly installed dryer vent systems can also cause problems, said Nole.

Some of Rhondas customers have been surprised to learn that only about 60 percent of lint removed from laundry is caught in the lint trap. The rest escapes into the dryer ducts or inside the dryer cabinet. Dryer Vent Wizard performs a complete dryer vent cleaning to remove all lint accumulated inside the dryer and dryer vent system.
Dryer vent cleaning removes dryer lint build-up from the dryer vent system to allow heat and moisture to escape as laundry dries. A clogged dryer vent causes the dryer to work harder and use substantially more energy as it labors to get clothes dry. Increased drying time is the most common warning sign of blocked air flow and a potential fire hazard. Dryer vent cleaning is the solution when clothes dryers begin to lose efficiency.
An overworked, over heated clothes dryer can throw a spark that causes the combustible lint inside the dryer to ignite. The draft from the dryer naturally pulls the flame into the duct where more lint provides fuel. A dryer fire spreads quite rapidly causing major property damage, injury and death for many Americans each year.
