Paying special attention to detail, DVW inspects dryer vents for fire hazards and makes necessary corrections while educating the customer
Carmichael, CA -- Gina M. Fazil, Former Convenient Store Owner, traded her business for a logo-gina uniform to own and operate a Dryer Vent Wizard, Safe Homes, Dry Clothes (DVW), franchise in Sacramento, CA and surrounding areas.
DVW services prevent dryer fires, keep dryers functioning properly and provide energy savings through dryer and dryer vent maintenance, cleaning, repair, replacement and alterations.
When Fazil decided she didn’t want to go back into the retail business, she looked into franchising. Having been in customer service most of her career gave her a wealth of experience on which to draw. She researched several concepts and found Dryer Vent Wizard Dry Clothes, Safe Homes. Despite the funny name, Fazil found the concept intriguing. “I liked that DVW provided much needed solutions to consumers’ dryer and dryer vent problems which ultimately prevents dryer fires,” says Fazil.
In an effort to make consumers more aware, technologist turned entrepreneur Fazil shares these maintenance “tips” to prevent dryer fires and keep dryers running efficiently:
Be sure that dryer vent systems are up to code with city, state and manufacturer.
Replace any plastic or foil vent with semi-rigid or solid metal venting
Clean screen lint trays before and after drying a load.
Wash lint screens with soap and water every few months to remove residue left behind by fabric softeners.
Don’t leave the house or go to bed with the dryer running.
Have dryer vents professionally cleaned and inspected annually.
Warning signs to look for:
Clothes are taking more than one cycle to dry, especially jeans and towels.
No lint visible on lint screen.
Dryer repeatedly stops during a cycle
Clothes have moldy smell after dry cycle
“Consumers who follow these guidelines,” say’s, Fazil “will create a safe environment in their homes, prolong the life of their dryer and save money on energy bills.” For more tips and information, visit http://www.dryerventwizard.com
