Harold Bert, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard ( was recently interviewed by the Appliance Doctor on WAAM Talk 1600. He explained how important it to have regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning. “Nearly 80% of residents are unaware of the risk of fire due to clogged dryer vents,” said Bert. “Improper dryer vent installation and poor maintenance can lead to dryer fires.”

Listeners were allowed to call in with their questions and the Wizard turned the tables and asked a question of his own: “What do two gallons of water, seven socks and five dryer sheets have in common?” The answer, “They were all found in one dryer vent!” Bert explained that this was what he found when he responded to call from a customer complaining of a musty odor in clothes after a dryer cycle. He informed the customer that this is a warning sign of an obstructed dryer vent which needed to be addressed immediately to eliminate a fire hazard.
