Our company cleans, repairs and installs dryer vents. We do more than clean vents; we help to ‘pre-vent' problems in the laundry room, including environmental hazards like mold and dust, and most important, fires. We've owned Dryer Vent Wizard of Northern Virginia since 2006.
My husband, Doug was a commercial airline pilot and I was the director of marketing for a regional real estate services provider before going into the dryer vent business.
We have also committed to educate consumers in our community about dryer vent safety. So many people are unaware of the hidden fire hazards in thier clothes dryer vents. While they change furnace filters and have their furnace professionally cleaned, they neglect the clothes dryer. We've seen many dryers that still have the flexible, foil tubing rather than a more rigid material. This is a fire hazard!
There are over 15,000 clothes dryer fires a year in the US; most of them are caused by failure to properly maintain the dryer vent system.
