Highlands Ranch Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Suggests Fire Prevention Tips
(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 25, 2012 ) Highlands Ranch CO -- When people think about National Fire Prevention Month, they might picture local firefighters visiting kids at school to promote 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 consumers can do to support National Fire Prevention Month, including purchasing tickets to fundraiserseven if they will not be attending. The money will be put to good use, improving fire departments, training for volunteer fire departments, better equipment and much more.
Parents can get involved by asking their children about the presentation by the fire department. They can have the children help spot and eliminate fire hazards in the home and help with the escape plan in case of fire. Calling the Wizard for dryer vent cleaning is a great plan as well. A vital part of service by Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.denvermetro.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) is education about dryer fire prevention and energy savings.
Here are some home inspection and fire prevention tips from the Wizard:
Electrical cords check for damage
Extension cords used safely; not under carpets or across doorways
Smoke detectors working
Fire extinguishers where needed
Escape routes clutter free and easily accessible
No curtains or other combustible items near the stove top
Space heaters off when you go to sleep or leave the room; at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn
Adult supervision when children help with cooking
Annual professional cleaning and inspection of furnace and chimney
Annual professional cleaning and inspection of dryer vent exhaust system
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 17,000 dryer fires occurring each year.
Dryer vent lint builds up very quickly, restricts air-flow and prevents the 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.
To commemorate National Fire Prevention Month in October, contact a dryer vent service technician for a complete inspection to be sure it is safe. Poorly vented gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide risk. All dryers need service by the Wizard. Visit http://www.dryerventcleaninghighlandsranchco.com/ to learn more.
