Clean Dryer Vents Show Spirit for National Fire Prevention Week in Stockton, CA

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard of Stockton says Clean Dryer Vents to Prevent Fires

When we think about National Fire Prevention Week, we might picture the fire department visiting kids at school to teach fire prevention and fire safety. Dryer vent cleaning companies also get involved with extra promotions to generate public awareness on dryer fire prevention.

There are many things we can do to support National Fire Prevention Week, including purchasing tickets to fundraisers…even if we cannot attend! The money will be put to good use, improving fire departments, training for volunteer fire departments, better equipment and much more.

Thousands of people die each year in home fires that can easily be prevented. Unfortunately, dryer vent cleaning is the most often neglected maintenance and the result is over 15,000 dryer fires occurring each year.

Dryer vent lint builds up very quickly, restricts air-flow and prevents your dryer from operating efficiently. This can lead to premature mechanical break down, cost up to an additional $300 in energy bills, and a rapidly spreading dryer related fire.

As you think about supporting National Fire Prevention Week in October, contact a dryer vent exhaust specialist for an inspection of your dryer vent system to be sure it is fire safe.
