Oct. 20, 2010 - PRLog -- Littleton, CO – The Littleton Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is reminding consumers to observe National Fire Prevention Month in October by eliminating potential fire hazards in their home.

The number of home fires and carbon monoxide poisonings increases during the fall and winter months, so consumers should check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to be sure they are functioning properly.

Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually, with dryer lint build-up being the largest contributor, followed by poorly installed dryer vent systems and dryer ducts made of vinyl or flexible foil.

Mitchell Chesney owns Dryer Vent Wizard, a company that specializes in dryer vent cleaning service while educating consumers on dryer fire prevention and energy savings.  “Most dryer fires are the result of failure to clean dryer vents,” said Chesney.  “Lint build-up in the dryer vent system restricts air flow and causes the appliance to work harder to get clothes dry.  The longer the dryer runs, the harder it works.  Eventually, the system can overheat and cause a rapidly spreading fire.”

Improper dryer vent installation is another leading cause of dryer fires and poor dryer performance.  “I have noticed that many people are still using vinyl or flexible foil dryer vent tubes which are no longer deemed safe,” said Chesney.  “The flexible tubes tend to sag and allow lint to become trapped in the low spots.  When owners push their dryer closer to the wall, the flexible dryer vent can become crushed and block air flow.”

Mitchell Chesney owns Dryer Vent Wizard of Colorado, specializing in complete dryer vent cleaning, repair, installation and alteration.  Dryer Vent Wizard’s only business is dryer vent systems; therefore, you can trust their Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians (C-DET) to make your clothes dryer fire-safe and energy-efficient.  Visit to learn more.
