Raleigh, NC -. Jim, former district manager for a natural gas company, traded his suit and tie for a logo-ed uniform to own and operate a Dryer Vent Wizard, Safe Homes, Dry Clothes (DVW) franchise in Wake County, North Carolina.


Dryer Vent Wizard provides dryer vent cleaning and inspections to prevent dryer fires, keep dryers functioning properly to provide energy savings. 


When Jim decided not to continue his current career and wasn't ready to retire, he looked into franchising. With years of business related skills behind him he gained a wealth of experience on which to draw. He researched several concepts and found Dryer Vent Wizard Dry Clothes, Safe Homes.  He found the business idea and the name intriguing. 


"I'm finding my new career, serving and educating consumers in my community, to be most rewarding," said Jim.  "We call to notify the customer we will be arriving shortly, We show up on time-or we call to advise the customer that we are running late, we present a professional image, we take care of the customer's home and we wear foot covers, we clean up after ourselves, and we provide quality work  with excellent customer service.  Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction.  


In an effort to make consumers more aware, Jim shares these maintenance "tips" to prevent dryer fires and keep dryers running efficiently.  He urges consumers to be sure their dryer vent systems are up to current UL standards, to replace any plastic or foil vents with semi-rigid or solid metal venting material, to keep lint trays clean and free of lint between loads, and to have the dryer vent system professionally cleaned and inspected at least once a year.  "My job isn't finished until my customer understands how their dryer vent system works and how to properly maintain it until my next annual visit," said Jim.
