Leawood Dryer Vent Repair Wizard a Force for Neighborhood Safety as he Reminds Residents to Observe Fire Prevention Month

The frequency of residential fires increases during the fall and winter season so the Wizard is providing fire prevention tips to homeowners to reduce the risk 


Leawood, KS -- When the Leawood Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard thinks about National Fire Prevention Month, he pictures local firefighters visiting kids at school to teach fire prevention. Dryer vent repair and installation companies also get involved with extra promotions to generate public awareness on dryer fire prevention.

The Wizard encourages everyone to have a dryer vent inspection performed right away. Harold Bert, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, offers commercial and residential dryer vent cleaning, dryer vent repair and new dryer vent installation.

Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com) suggests several things consumers can do to support National Fire Prevention Month, including purchasing tickets to fundraisers…even if they cannot attend! The money will be put to good use, improving fire departments with training for volunteer fire departments, better equipment and much more.

Here are some home inspection tips provided by the Leawood dryer vent repair Wizard:

• Electrical cords – check for damage
• Extension cords – used safely; not under carpets or across doorways
• Smoke detectors working
• Fire extinguishers where needed
• Escape routes – clutter free and easily accessible
• No curtains or other combustible items near the stove top
• Space heaters – off when you go to sleep or leave the room; at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn
• Adult supervision when children help with cooking
• Annual professional cleaning and inspection of furnace and chimney
• Annual professional cleaning and inspection of dryer vent exhaust system

People and family pets die every year in home fires that can easily be prevented. Unfortunately, dryer vent cleaning is the most often neglected maintenance and clogged dryer vents are the leading cause of over 17,000 dryer fires reported each year. Dryer vent repair and maintenance eliminates the danger and improves dryer performance.

Dryer vent lint builds up very quickly, restricts air-flow and prevents the dryer from operating efficiently. This can lead to premature mechanical break down, cost up to an additional $300 in energy bills, and a rapidly spreading dryer related fire.

Every clothes dryer needs a Wizard! Homeowners, tenants, multi-family dwellings, apartment buildings, commercial businesses, public laundries and any one operating a clothes dryer will benefit from service by the Dryer Vent Repair Wizard.
