Sept. 20, 2009 - PRLog -- Waterford, CA – Fire and water can be both beneficial and devastating.  Clothes dryer fires and flood damage are two appliance related disasters that can easily be prevented with proper maintenance.  James Smith, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, a dryer vent cleaning and dryer exhaust specialist, recently spoke at a workshop for new homeowners.  “Simple routine maintenance on your washer and dryer can save you a lot of money on energy bills and extend the life of your appliances,” said James.

James spoke about proper washer and dryer maintenance.  “We hook up our washing machine, connect the hoses, turn on the water valves, and take it for granted.  Few people think of the disaster that could occur if the washer hose should burst.  A burst water hose can release up to 650 gallons of water per hour.  Imagine the damage to your home if you’re on vacation when this happens!  Washer hoses should be replaced every three to five years to prevent a problem.”

Moving on to the clothes dryer, James spoke about the hazard of dryer lint build-up in the dryer ducts and the dryer vent.  “Everyone knows about cleaning the lint screen between loads; this is good maintenance, but it is not enough to ensure your clothes dryer is operating safely and efficiently.  Much of the lint removed from your laundry gets trapped in the dryer vent system or in the back of your dryer, around the motor, belts, pulleys and other moving parts.  Lint is highly combustible; a clogged dryer vent combined with an overheated clothes dryer is the perfect fuel for a dryer vent fire.”

Thanks to James Smith, new homeowners who attended this workshop learned how simple, inexpensive appliance maintenance can save them from disaster.  “These simple maintenance procedures, even when performed by a professional, typically cost less than $100.  When neglected, damages can be well over $100,000, not to mention the loss of your home or your life should you have a dryer fire.”  Read James complete article about washer and dryer maintenance at http://dryerventcleaningwaterford.blogspot.com/
