Former Computer Programmer, Bryan Linz, Turns Dryer Vent Repair Entrepreneur in York, PA

Services for Real Estate Pros with Dryer Vent Wizard of Central PA

Bryan provides dryer vent cleaning services and educates his customers on fire safety and dryer vent maintenance



York, PA -. Bryan Linz, former computer programmer, traded his business suit for a logo-ed uniform to own and operate a Dryer Vent Wizard, Safe Homes, Dry Clothes (DVW) franchise in Central Pennsylvania.


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 Bryan decided he didn't want back into the computer programming business and wasn't ready to retire, he looked into franchising. Having years of business related skills behind him gave him a wealth of experience on which to draw. He researched several concepts and found Dryer Vent Wizard Dry Clothes, Safe Homes.  Despite the funny name, Linz 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 Bryan.      


According to Bryan, consumer response to DVW has been positive, although a big part of what he does is educating.  "When consumers find their dryer taking more than one cycle to dry a load, they assume it's mechanical when the real problem is lint accumulation in the dryer vent, causing the dryer to work inefficiently and become susceptible to a dryer fire," says Bryan. 


In an effort to make consumers more aware, entrepreneur Bryan Linz 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 code with the city, state and manufacturer, 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, wash lint screens every few months to remove residue build-up from fabric softeners, and to have the dryer vent system professionally cleaned and inspected at least once a year. 



Bryan tells his customers to watch for certain warning signs of potential fire hazards, like clothes taking more than one cycle to dry, no visible lint on the screen between loads, dryer repeatedly stopping during a cycle and clothes having a moldy smell after drying.
