More than 17,000 dryer fires are reported each year resulting in deaths, injuries and nearly $200 million in property damage. These devastating fires result in many families becoming homeless, children being badly burned, and the loss of beloved pets. Clogged dryer vents are a leading cause of dryer related hazards.

“We are proud to participate in a nationwide effort to raise funds for the Children’s Burn Foundation to help children burned in fires,” said Janice Bittner, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard. “A vital part of our service to educate consumers about minimizing the risk of dryer fires by following easy dryer maintenance tips.
