Frederick Dryer Vent Cleaning

Shocking Statistics Revealed by the Frederick Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard

The Wizard's 80-20 Rule: 80% of American homes have clothes dryers and only 20% of owners are aware of the importance of dryer vent cleaning service

Frederick MD – According to the Frederick Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, more than 80 percent of American homes has a clothes dryer; yet only about 20 percent understand the importance of dryer vent maintenance to prevent fires. Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause. 90 percent of all appliance fires are dryer related.

Joe Paine, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard ( is on a mission to eliminate dryer fires in his community by educating customers while providing service. He advises his customers of the warning signs to watch for, including increased drying time, little or no lint on the lint screen, excess lint left on clothing, dryer stopping during a cycle, clothes are hot to the touch or have a moldy smell after a cycle, or the top of the dryer heating up while running.

The Frederick Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard advises his customers that besides being a fire hazard, poorly vented clothes dryers can cost an additional $300 per year to operate. Gas dryers must be properly vented to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Joe Paine is confident that he is making a difference in his community as are nearly 60 Wizards across the U.S. As a result of their efforts, as well as media attention from the CPSC and NFPA, the number of dryer fires has dropped by 35% from the 24,000 that occurred annually in the late 1970's.

Dryer Vent Wizard works to make clothes dryers safer and greener by providing professional dryer vent installation, periodic Dryer Vent Cleaning and dryer vent repair service for homes and businesses. Visit to learn more.
