Wethersfield Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Working to Minimize Risk of Dryer Fire Hazard

Dryer fire claims the life of a 5-year old child and spurs the Wizard into action as he works to generate consumer awareness of the importance of cleaning dryer vents


Wethersfield, CT – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is a force for neighborhood safety as he works to encourage public awareness of the importance of dryer vent maintenance. John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard recalls a dryer fire that killed a 5 year old child. Most dryer fires are caused by a clogged dryer vent; therefore, easily prevented with service by the Wizard.

The Wizard will never forget the dryer fire that engulfed a mobile home and killed a 5 year old child that was trapped inside. Neighbors tried to save the little girl, but the smoke and flames were too intense. Two out of three children who were awakened by smoke detectors escaped and ran to their grandmother’s trailer nearby to call 911. The parents were not home when the fire started.

According to service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard (http://wethersfieldct.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually, with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause. John Moffat works hard to prevent this from occurring in his home town by educating his customers about proper dryer vent installation and dryer vent cleaning service. He contacts them each year to remind them to have a dryer vent inspection and service. He makes sure his customers understand how their dryer vent system works and advises them to never leave home or go to sleep when the dryer is running.

Though clogged dryer vent systems are the leading cause of dryer fires, John Moffat is advising consumers to have all their appliances, including the clothes dryer and dryer vent system installed by a certified professional. Faulty electrical outlets, leaky gas lines and poorly installed dryer vent systems can be hazardous. Moffat also tells residents to be careful of what is stored near the dryer. In the event of a fire, cardboard boxes and flammable liquids provide fuel for the fire to spread rapidly.
