Carmel Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Visits the Appliance Doctor on WAAM Talk 1600

Joe Gagnon, active consumer advocate and appliance repair guru discusses dryer fire prevention with the Wizard


 Carmel IN – The local Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard was recently interviewed by Joe Gagnon, the Appliance Doctor on WAAM Talk 1600. Joe Gagnon is an active consumer advocate and appliance repair guru with over 20 year's experience. He discussed dryer fire prevention with Glen Mayfield, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard.

Dryer Vent Wizard ( specializes in dryer vent inspection, dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation service while educating consumers about dryer maintenance to prevent fires and save energy.

In an effort to increase public awareness to prevent dryer fires, Mayfield explains how important proper dryer maintenance is. The number one problem he addresses is increased drying time which is typically the first indicator that there is a venting problem. Dryer vent cleaning is usually the solution to speed up drying time and improve overall dryer performance.

Glen told a true story from the field as he detailed one occasion where a customer had a tin foil vent that had come loose and deposited lint above the ceiling. There was also an exposed wire nearby that generated a spark and ignited the lint. It was very lucky the Wizard was there to put out the fire and call the fire department to make sure the home was safe. Once he got the "okay" he was able to replace the faulty dryer vent system and get the lint out!

Glen Mayfield explains to all his customers that flexible foil or vinyl dryer ducts are not designed for the extreme heat produced by a clothes dryer. These venting kits sold in local hardware stores are fine for a bathroom exhaust fan, but should not be used for the dryer (even if the package indicates different). Dryer Vent Wizard only installs metal dryer vent systems that meet current safety codes.

Wizards across the US work to educate customers about dryer fire prevention and energy savings while performing an important home service. Professional dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning by the Wizard makes dryers safer and greener. Glen Mayfield serves the Central Indiana area, Indianapolis, Carmel, Zionsville, Westfield and surrounding cities and communities. Visit to learn more.
