Do’s and Don’ts from the LaGrange Park Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard

The Wizard suggests easy tips to eliminate dryer related hazards like dryer fires, increased energy bills and overall poor dryer performance


LaGrange Park IL – The LaGrange Park Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is working extra hard to get the word out about the importance of dryer maintenance to prevent dryer fires and eliminate a number of other dryer related hazards. Periodic dryer vent cleaning service is important for keeping dryers operating safely and efficiently.

According to the local dryer vent service technician, failure to clean dryer vents is the cause of most dryer performance problems and dryer related fires. Lint build-up blocks airflow, causing a dryer to over work, leading to increased drying time, higher energy bills, and eventually, a dryer fire. Lint is highly flammable, so all it takes is a spark from inside the dryer to start a rapidly spreading fire.

Manny Diesman, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard ( is dedicated to educating the customer while performing an important service. His job is not complete until they understand how their dryer vent system works and how to keep it operating safely and efficiently.

His simple list of do’s and don’ts helps the customer maintain a safe and efficient dryer:

• Clean the lint filter after every load
