Dryer fires are especially devastating when they occur in attached condos and multi-unit apartment buildings
Kansas City West – Over 17,000 dryer fires occur each year resulting in deaths, injuries and home loss. The local Dryer Vent Service Wizard urges consumers to have a complete inspection of the dryer vent system to be sure it is properly installed and providing adequate airflow for the clothes dryer.
To help further the efforts of dryer fire prevention Harold Bert, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, presented the risks associated with poorly vented clothes dryers to a local apartment association. Dryer fires are especially devastating when they occur in multi-unit dwellings where many homes and lives are threatened. Professional dryer vent service by the Wizard eliminates the danger and improves dryer performance.
The risk of a dryer fire is not only a concern for homeowners, but also apartment and condo associations and businesses with clothes dryers. It is critical that the dryer vent system be properly installed, using the correct material. Plastic, vinyl and flexible dryer ducts should be replaced with rigid metal dryer vents by a qualified dryer vent service technician.
Harold Bert uncovers a problem with 90% of dryer vent inspections performed. Though venting a clothes dryer is a simple concept, there are several common errors made by well-meaning homeowners and handyman services. Dryer Vent Wizard (http://dryerventwizard.com/) only installs new dryer vent systems that are code compliant for safety and efficiency.
Dryer vent cleaning should be performed at least once a year and for multi-unit buildings like apartments and condos, more frequent service may be needed depending on volume of use.

Harold Bert combines professional service with education to make sure his customer understands how to keep their dryer operating safely and efficiently.
